Life/Style: Places for Laces

Getting many different lacy looks through smart use of patterns and fabric



Once the preserve of brides and Victorian ladies, lace is everywhere. Don’t mistake this ubiquity as being overdone—far from it, as there are as many manifestations of the fabric as there are lace patterns. Contemporary lace looks include laser-cut leathers, edgy metallics, daytime dresses in colored lace and macramé-inspired open-work. Lacy fabrics are surprisingly versatile: Try pairing your lace with another texture to play it down a little, or toughen it up by teaming a lace top with a leather jacket. Whatever your style, there’s a way to embrace some lace.
