Heat and humidity are often part of the long days of summer. However, do not allow your quest to keep cool become an excuse to not look your best. Designers have outdone themselves, once again, offering an array of textiles and trims for daytime ensembles. Often associated with evening dresses and elegant attire, lace has entered the realm of day-wear.
Worn as a peek-a-boo allover lace blouse with a contrasting see-through form-fitting camisole or as top with lace inserts, this textile has change the scope for women’s tops during the summer 2013 season. Designer fashions have also included tops pairing lace with crochet inserts and ribbon ties peaking any fashionistas interest.
Though lace has now entered the everyday wardrobe fray, coordinating it with your existing wardrobe is another question. Coordinate a tunic length top with lace inserts with your skinny jeans to revitalize your denim. Look fashionable on a Sunday brunch with friends at your local bistro wearing a lace blouse and pencil skirt with a cinched waist belt. Layer an allover white lace sleeveless top over a neon tube top and pair it with raw edge fringe denim shorts for weekend shopping.
Venture into your local small business retail shops for lace top bargains. Since these fabrics are costly, up-and-coming designers often purchase pieces leftover from high-end designers to create one-of-a-kind tops.
