Like a spider spinning an ever-widening web, lace has been weaving its way into our lives for the past few seasons. From runways to retail stores to real-life styles on the street, lace is a constant thread running throughout fashion and jewelry editorials this year.
The race toward lace was previewed over Memorial Day weekend, when New York Times fashion photographer and legendary trend-spotter Bill Cunningham snapped dozens of New York women incorporating a little lace into their summer looks. Whether it’s a feminine lacey camisole…or a lace-inset blouse or T-shirt…this is a trend that will transcend seasons. Be on the lookout for jewelry that will help you embrace the lace look for fall.
Jewelry featuring openwork or filigree can help soften the edges of fall’s bold designs. When paired with a leather jacket or color-blocked dress, for instance, a piece of lacework jewelry adds an unexpected twist. Lace jewelry can be dreamy and ethereal or dramatic and edgy. A piece or two added to your jewelry wardrobe will make even last year’s fall clothes feel new.
Today’s top jewelry designers are reinterpreting lace in gold, platinum, silver, steel, plastic and more. Pictured on this page are five inspirational pieces to get your fall jewelry shopping started.
