designer lounge: white lace

Personally I think that lace in general is a trend that never really goes out of fashion.

White lace in particular has been out and come back in again countless times but needless to say, it is back yet again to see us through the festive period.

The perfect piece for a Christmas party or simply to wear on a night out with the girls, the white lace dress specifically is a must this season.

White lace is perfect for multi-layering and accessorising. For example a white lace blouse can be worn in the summer with some high- waisted shorts or with a smart blazer and scarf in the winter. You can wear white lace out for dinner with some flats or glam it up with a pair of swanky heels to add class and style. It's sexy, versatile and it reinvents itself every time it hits the high street, year after year.

As I have mentioned the white lace dress was a big hit last year and is set to reappear on the high street for a second year running. Personally I think its hard to pull of white lace, especially if you have fair colouring or blonde hair. I would suggest that white lace can be carried off better by brunettes and those with auburn hair.

If you want to wear lace but don't quite think you can pull off the lace dress, you may wish to team black tailored trousers with a white lace blouse, or even a chiffon blouse with lace shorts. You definitely have plenty of options this season!

Here are some of the best pieces I could find on the high street for affordable prices:
