Fashion Editor, Yuri Ahn shares her styling expertise with our Swide readers. Lace is a Dolce&Gabbana must have: Lace accessories, lace dresses and even lace effect hats. Plus contratsing outerwear to set off that all important fabric.
Lace is a fundamental fabric for Dolce&Gabbana- it encapsulates many of the elements dear to the brand: Sicilian heritage, religious undertones, craftsmanship and sensuality.
Lace is not only a fabric, unusually for SS12, Dolce&Gabbana transformed lace into a print. Choose a typical baby doll style with lace detailing. The baby doll on its own is a little too romantic, so grunge it up with a leather jacket. This one with asymmetric fastening and bejewelled buttons is perfect. Take the lace idea through to the accessories with these lace peep toe pumps with lipstick charm and a lace overlay Rosa bag. In Spring I usually like to wear colours, but with this novel lace print- I feel girlie enough. Just add a hat for a playful finish to the look. Just perfect for tea with friends while basking in the afternoon sun.
You can laso mix lace with lace print you know? Do it by matching this lace print bodysuit with a lace skirt (underskirt is optional). It may look a little dreary for a Spring look, so just inject some colour with a lemon yellow summer coat and some raffia clogs. Don’t forget your trusty lace accessory: a cream and black lace Miss Charles mini bag. If you want to show off your waist line a bit more just add a belt and cinch it in.
