Kendra’s Fashion Fridays: A Lacey Embrace

One of the biggest trends for fall 2010 is lace! The sexy, feminine fabric is no longer restricted to just intimate wear and lingerie; it’s now being used in every type of clothing and accessory, and it’s at the top of my shopping list! Last night, I went to dinner with one of my good friends and I was obsessed with this amazing lace turtleneck she was wearing, and earlier this week, Taylor Swift’s beautiful lace gown on the cover of this month’s Glamour magazine caught my eye as I was in line at the grocery store.

Celebrities have been spotted incorporating this antique fabric into their glamorous red carpet looks. Lauren Conrad looked amazing in a white lacy little number for her NewYork book signing, while a-listers Kristen Stewart and Camilla Belle stepped out on the red carpet in black cocktail dresses with gorgeous lacey detailing. Michelle Williams proves that lace can be just as chic in a bright color! I love her red lace Erdem dress she paired perfectly with sassy leopard print heels at the London Film Festival.

Celebs have worn this trend in numerous other ways. Emma Watson wore an adorable Alice by Alice Temperly black lace romper to a Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows promotion in London, and January Jones was caught stepping out of the car in a beautiful black lace long-sleeve top she smartly paired with sleek heels and skinny jeans. Selena Gomez wore lace pants at a red carpet premiere, and totally rocked it!

Lace was a hot commodity on the fall 2010 runway as well. Valentino incorporated black lace detailing over his nude-colored satin dresses and gowns (below left), and Oscar de la Renta used the fancy fabric in his evening wear looks, like this ultra-girly black tiered lace dress, complete with an adorable bow (below middle). At the Dolce and Gabbana show, lace was also a common thread, showing up in skirts and dresses, and as feminine detailing in business suits. My favorite was this satin D&G leopard print dress complete with edgy black lace sleeves (below right).

This fall, you can find clothes, accessories, and everything in between, adorned in lace detailing. I picked out three of my favorite ways to wear the trend!

1. I love the idea of pairing a sweet, innocent sheer lace top, like this dark gray one from or this off-white blouse from Revolve Clothing, with some hot skinny jeans and killer high heels or boots.

2. Another great way to get some lace into your fall wardrobe is with an elegant lacey dress, like this charming cream-colored Rich Stitch dress, or this darling black Free People dress with floral lace detailing.

3. Lace skirts are also very trendy for fall. In fact, one of the girls at my office is looking fabulous in a lace skirt today! This Milly lace cream colored mini skirt and ModCloth skirt with both lace and ruffle detailing are both on my wish list!
