What To Wear With: Lace

September 24, 2008 by Bryn
shefinds | Style

Seen most recently on the Emmys' red carpet, lace is one huge trend this fall. From dresses to blouses to the occasional frilly coat, the fabric formerly reserved for petticoats and lampshade trim is having its moment as the fashion it-kid. But how does one wear it without looking dated?


A black lace dress is pretty much a no-fail way to pull off the trend. The key to creating a modern look is to pair with modern accessories. A powerful cocktail ring and eclectic necklace will mix well with the old-fashioned lace. Slip on some black tights, and masculine black boots to rough up the dress. A simple, unfrilly black clutch will complement your accessories. And finally, opt for a bright overcoat that stands out against the black.
