No longer are 'lace' and old-fashioned' used in the same sentence! This popular fashion trend surfaced last year and now in 2011..its here to stay!
This year on the catwalk lace really has taken over, from Pucci to Roberto Cavalli, Valentino and Alexander Mcqueen..
And as designers seek out to try something new, crochet and tasselsare beginning to emerge on the runway.
From maxi dresses, to bags, party dressesto giant jumpers...what was once 'grandmas craft project' is now high fashion!
I'm obsessed with lace and crochet at the moment because they can be used in so many different ways! Pair a pretty lace skirt with a leather jacket for a stylish or edgy look. Wear a floaty lace dress over bathers to the beach - or add someheels and wear to anight out!
And as for tassels...well, who would have thought those funny little things that hang off curtains would one day be fashioned into belts, dresses, and necklaces!
