Lace is a stunning fabric that is often associated with bridal and evening wear. Since Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wore a Chantilly lace gown at her wedding last year, we have seen lace surge in popularity. Don’t limit yourself to wearing the delicate material on special occasions – a little injection of lace into an outfit will create stunning texture and sophisticated layers. The best way to wear lace to work is to keep it subtle. Choose one lace item and keep the rest of your ensemble classic.
