Let’s talk about lace

Your guide to wearing the trend this season

There's nothing old-fashioned about these lace-embellished pieces. Lace has had a modern makeover, and it's never looked cooler than on the SS19 catwalks. According to high-end designers, there are two ways to wear lace in 2019 - and they're poles apart.

First up, there's the edgy, boyish way, as seen at Victoria Beckham with boxy lace-embellished shirts, and Alexander Wang with sporty lace-edged tops. Even uber-cool brands like Off-White have added a hint of lace to their streetwear stylings - replicate the look with silky blouses and tops teamed with jeans and boots. Then there's the hyper-feminine option, as seen with Burberry's lacy slip dresses and Christopher Kane's lipstick-red dresses and flippy mini skirts.

If you're going to do all-lover lace, take your cue from Erdem, where ladylike pastel-hued dresses were given power shoulders and styled with bobby socks and ankle boots.

Which lace look is the one for you? To help you decide, here's the best of both on the high street...
