Lace is often perceived as being appropriate for evening wear only.  This spring, it has been re-introduced as an element that adds sophistication to even the most casual of outfits.  By day, lace can provide softness to a look when worn as a light layer.  It even provides structure to a design when added to a garment as an applique.  Both 3.1 Phillip Lim and Marchesa have mastered this visual technique.  Alexander McQueen’s full spring ready to wear line was laced (mind the pun) with a graphic print that mimics the classic mesh throughout as you can see on his leggings.

I have often shied away from lace as I find it can look cheap or remind me of bad lingerie but these styles have shown me how it can be done right.  I’m looking forward to infusing it into my spring wardrobe and using it to accent some casual pieces that simply need a touch of elegance.

There is no more definitive style for spring year after year than nautical.  Spring makes you want to climb aboard your yacht and head for open waters…or at least dress like you do.  So in my look ahead to spring, I have compiled some of my favorite styles inspired by the high seas.  What says nautical more than navy, stripes and anchors?
