OutFit: Lace jackets
Designers are taking another look at the classics and modernizing them with different fabrics, colors and trims.
One of my favorite transformations is the lace jacket.
The traditional lace jacket, almost always in black, was only brought out for formal affairs.
The new lace jacket can be found in an array of colors from shocking pink to a more muted palette.
Not only has the hue changed, but the cut has too. Gone is the form fitting style, replaced by softer, swinging lace wraps and tough, yet feminine, lace bomber jackets.
Luxury with a little sizzle, a lace jacket may be just what you are looking for this fall.
