Femininity is back and nothing epitomises this more than lace. Enchanting, exquisite and ethereal, the abiding beauty of lace is everywhere this summer. Lace tops, skirts, dresses, jackets and trousers, in classic neutrals, pretty pastels and bold brights.
New to the lace scene this year are lace prints; cotton, silk and linen fabric printed with delicate lace patterns to look like lace, sometimes all-over prints, other times just hints of lace.
Printed Lace Sleeve Dress
Summer is the perfect season for lace; summer weddings, summer parties, summer events; all lend themselves to elegant, feminine dressing. The smart money is on accessorising with lace to dress up wardrobe stand-bys. Choose an inexpensive pair of lace gloves; long or short; black or white and even black and white printed lace to add a finishing touch to a simple shift dress.

For the height of elegance a Chantilly Lace and Cashmere Shawl will be hard to beat and the only accessory you will need to make a statement. In soft cream or pure black these shawls are investment pieces which transform classic dresses and suits. The cashmere is hand spun and hand woven and the exquisite Chantilly lace is hand stitched to the cashmere in a soft billowing design. For sheer elegance and sophistication it needs no more than a little black dress.
