Add one trendy lace piece for a whisper of romance this Spring

Today is the most romantic day of the year, so I was excited to highlight one of the most romantic fabrics ever – lace! Nostalgic lace is still a hot trend for Spring, but how best to wear lace without looking like Madonna circa 1985?

In a word – color. For me at least, black is out (unless it’s cocktail wear). Somehow, black lace in the boardroom is just a little too close to black lace in the bedroom. Not a message I want to send!

Fortunately, this Spring you’ll find lace pieces in a rainbow of subtle shades, including the muted pastels that are my personal favorites.

I’ve chose a few distinctive items to highlight and you’ll probably want them all — but, a word of caution — lace is incredibly easy to overdo. One piece per look should be perfect.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
