Luxurious lace has been draped all across the runway this season. From lacy overlays to full-on lace garments, designers have been experimenting with how far they can take lace. Let’s take a look at the top lace trends for 2018 and how they can be worn this season.
Full on, totally sheer lace ensembles are making their way down the runway and into photoshoots. Elie Saab’s full lace dress features pops of opacity for a lovely dress that will leave the wearer with an interesting tan, and Marchesa’s lace pants are ideal for the non-traditional bride to be. Paco Rabanne’s lace dress is perfect for the beach or an evening out on the town, while Stella McCartney’s lace blouse looks a lot like lingerie.
Let loose with these lace fabrics:
A lacy layer is perfect for creating depth and detailing. Anna Sui’s simple lace layer is longer than the mini dress, ideal for a blustery summer day, and Christian Siriano’s lace dress over a very short romper is high fashion at its finest. Giamba’s lacy sheath dress looks flowy and fun, perfect for heading to the MoMA, while Moschino’s lacy layer looks a lot more casual.
Create an overlay with these lace fabrics:
Lace sleeves are perfect for summery ensembles, as they are breathable and beautiful. Jonathon Simkhai’s slip dress features elegant lace sleeves and a collar, while Luisa Beccaria’s sleeves are simply an extension of the overlay. Self-Portrait’s lace sleeves are paired perfectly with the silken dress and Zuhair Murad’s lacy sleeves are layered beautifully under a lovely halter top.
