Super-feminine accents are popping up everywhere these days—from bow prints to tulle skirts. As an alternative to the leather panels that were everywhere last fall, lace appliqués are proving that they’re not just for bridal gowns and lingerie. Our favorite use for the sugar-sweet detail? On the sleeves of your formerly played-out winter sweaters. So much more romantic and fun to wear than your usual knitted pullover. Throw it on with a leather skirt for a cool contrast of soft and hard, or try it with a pair of skinnies and booties on a casual Saturday afternoon.
