Lace is back
The hottest trend for SS18 is this romantic, feminine, classic fabric.

Lace featured heavily on recent catwalk shows as designers showcased their SS18 ready-to-wear collections.  Many looks had a distinct vintage feel, with other brands opting for bright and fresh floral lace looks.  The classic black lace dress was a firm favourite with catwalk audiences, while Neiman Marcus added a splash of vibrant colour with their green lace dress. ‘Greenery’ is Pantone’s Shade of the Year, so no surprise to see green sneaking into many collections.

The appeal of lace never fades. Other trends come and go but designers return to this fabric again and again. Why? Because it’s so wearable, can be worn by all ages and lends itself to any occasion. Whilst the classic lace dress can be found in almost every wardrobe, lace isn’t just for occasion wear, or lingerie anymore. We’re now seeing lace mixed with other fabrics to create more casual, everyday looks.

The definition of versatile: Lace shown with a t-shirt, distressed jeans, a blazer and a denim jacket.

Lace paired with denim, cotton, leather and other plain fabrics can create the perfect daytime look, ending the myth that lace is just for evening wear.

Of course, if you did want to turn heads, this fabric is an absolute showstopper and there is nothing else out there quite like it. We’ve already shown how lace can be casual but it’s also perfect for when you want to turn up the glamour. The images below show how lace can be brought bang up to date for when you need a modern, edgy, sophisticated look.
