Trend to Try: Summer Lace Overlay


Celebrate the romance of summer in floral and crochet lace overlay pieces this season, a gorgeous alternative to the thicker and more gothic applique associated with cold weather. BothJessica Biel and Nicole Kidman recently donned similar styled gowns to Cannes; the devastatingly chic trend has been a celeb favorite on the red carpet as of late. In soft neutrals, bright pastels, and rich gold, these 8 finds provide a touch of whimsical flavor to your warm wardrobe and can be dressed down with sandals for day events and accessorized with bold baubles at night.
