How to Rock the 2016 Lace Fashion Trend
There is something about lace that is so alluring! When this distinctive and intricate pattern was first developed in the sixteenth-century in Europe, it has become a timeless favorite by many across the globe. From beautiful bridal gowns to sexy lingerie, this gorgeous material can be both, sexy but at same time innocent and very feminine, which not many other fabrics can do. What was once an exclusive luxury, mainly worn by royalties and high-ranking aristocrats, can now be available to everyone. And despite its complex construction, you can find this delicate, romantic and very elegant material in almost every store today.
I absolutely adore the currently popular trend of lingerie-inspired clothing that was once only suitable to be worn in bed, now can be seen on the runways and slayed by different celebrities and public figures out in the open. Pieces such as silky slip dresses, corset belts, bralettes, lacy bodysuits, chiffon dresses made out of sheer layers and ruffles are on the rise more than ever before!
But lace doesn’t always have to be seductive, you can also make your outfit more chic and elegant by layering in a way that would hint ‘seduction’ but not over-expose your body. Try wearing a biker jacket or a long blazer/trench coat over a slip dress, or the slip dress over a simple white t-shirt. The trick here is knowing just how comfortable you are with revealing your legs, arms or the waist with sheer materials. Be careful however, as lace has a tendency to go down the slippery slope of taking you from sexy to skanky very quickly!
