I’m starting the New Year off right with a celebrity and runway trend alert. I’ve recently spotted a return of a black lace and I love this trend because it refers to the proms, treats and other fancy occassions that every girl likes. I don’t find myself a fashion victim as I know that some trends don’t suit me and some of them are simply not wearable. But not the black lace.
For a carnival season it is a must. This winter, a traditional black lace takes a modern turn and gets connected to a trendy bad girl look. It has a modern attitude and deputizes jewellery – it is enough to wear a black lace alone. The ‘Dark Romantic’ trend involves especially black lace tights or leggings (see: 6126 BY LINDSAY LOHAN) but it is just a conservative version.
If you feel it’s not enough for you, try a black lace dress (see: Stella McCartney Scalloped Lace Dress), a jacket, a bandage bodycon skirt or a blouse. For the most fashion-courageous ones designers suggest a great variety of lace accessories like shoes, bracelets and clutches (see: Maika clutch from Dolce & Gabbana’s D&G line). I was amused by some black gown false eyelashes but I find them a little exaggeration, though.
Black lace has also hit the red carpets and it seems like lots of fashionistas have been belovingly sporting this trend. Agyness Deyn adopted the black lace trend that she wamped with some punk inspired accessories. Also, Taylor Momsen created a blonde Morticia Adams-inspired look in her elegant black lace creation that she finished with dark lips and a pair of wedges. Here are some gorgeous lace overlay suggestions:
