There’s nothing old-fashioned about these lace-embellished pieces.

Not that long ago, the only people who wore lace clothing were little girls, brides and grannies.
From wedding gowns to sweetheart collar blouses, the intricate textile had certain connotations – trendy it was not.
That’s all changed now though. Lace has had a modern makeover, and it’s never looked cooler than on the SS19 catwalks.
Then there’s the hyper-feminine option, as seen with Burberry’s lacy slip dresses and Christopher Kane’s lipstick-red dresses and flippy mini skirts.
If you’re going to do all-lover lace, take your cue from Erdem, where ladylike pastel-hued dresses were given power shoulders and styled with bobby socks and ankle boots.
