Achieving a sophisticated style is easy when adding lace to your look. If you want to spice up the way you look in an elegant way, then the trend to try this season is lace! Lace comes in many patterns and designs, so whatever your taste may be you can find an appropriate piece to wear. Lace has a long history, starting in the 16th century when it was used in both fashion and home décor. Since then, lace has been a staple in almost every civilization and is a great fashion fabric to wear.  Lace features an open pattern with holes and spacing with unique patterns throughout. The fabric is woven together or laced, hence the name. Lace in a garment is a must-have fashion piece that every woman should have in her closet.

I’m showcasing great lace pieces to introduce you to lace or if you’re already a fan, fun and affordable garbs to get your hands on!
