Rock ‘n’ Lace
Once considered the fabric choice of Victorian aunts, lace has evolved into statement worthy options sought by rockers and stylistas alike. Every fashion retailer and designer will offer lace in their Autumn collections. For a unique look mix it up – wear high street with Couture. There are no rules other than to make your own unique statement.
The romantic bohemian summer trends will transgress through to a tougher and edgier Fall – lace, leather and studs will grace everything from jackets through to footwear as represented by British power house – Alexander McQueen. Already evident in stores it will be to the British high street that I look for affordable statement pieces satisfying this genre. To maintain relevance juxtapose textures – lace takes on a whole new meaning when worn with a studded boots or a biker jacket.
Most British retailers are now accessible this side of the pond with stateside websites and stores. Those that are not will facilitate shipping from the UK. Check out Brit staples like Ted Baker, Karen Millen and one of Kate Middletons favorite stores, Reiss, all of whom offer inspired pieces with essentials for everyday versatility.
