Lace has been on-trend for what seems like forever, and it’s still going strong. We all have it in our wardrobes; if you haven’t where have you been? So the lace trend must be getting a bit tired by now. Except this Spring/Summer lace has been reworked to give a fresh, new perspective to an exhausted and overworked trend. And this all starts with dresses!

Lace dresses were seen in a huge number of variations and colors on the Spring/Summer catwalks. All unique, creating what seemed like a brand new trend all over again. There is one major difference between the lace we already own and this new lace. The key to wearing lace next season is to opt for over-sized, bold patterns or Broderie Anglaise. If you remember one thing about this classic trend, remember that delicate, vintage lace has been replaced by bold, quirky patterns. This is a trend you can really have fun with!

Pattern is key, but color is still crucial to this trend next season. Be inspired by Louis Vuitton and get in on the pastels trend with candy hued dresses in spearmint green or pale yellow. Or opt for vibrant, eye popping brights in primary colors. But if you’d prefer a more understated shade to let the lace do the talking, try navy as an on-trend alternative. For example, this tiered scalloped lace dress from ASOS for $80.57 is perfect for summer evenings!

If you’re looking for something a bit different and less girly, try over-sized lace tees or lace pants for a more masculine vibe. There is a huge selection of dresses and other lace pieces available both on the high street and online. So whatever colors you choose, whether it’s white or nudes, pastels, eye popping brights or deep, dark blue make sure the lace you choose is bold and quirky!
