One of the hottest new summer trends is the addition of lace elements on tops and dresses that add interest and detail to the neck, back and front. My favorite part of this trend is its freshness. While exposed shoulders have been around for a few seasons in various forms, lace embellishments are new for this season.
One of the most important benefits to this trend is that these simple lace designs draw the eye upward and keep it focused near your face. When you have one of these tops on, no one will be looking at your legs or feet! Additionally, the trend adds a feminine touch that is delicate and beautiful. It is almost like adding jewelry to your top. The lace details act in much the same way a lovely necklace adds interest and focuses the eye.
If you find the neck or back to be too plunging, you can always use fashion tape from Hollywood Fashion to secure the neckline to your skin so it will stay in place. We carry this line of fashion emergency fixers at Fashion Crossroads.
Just remember ladies, this season is all about showing some skin. Whether you are bearing your shoulders in a cold shoulder top, showing skin with cut outs, or drawing the eye upward with lace detailing, you are highlighting the area around your face and neck and keeping beautiful you at the forefront and center! That, my dears, is the WHOLE point of fashion! Happy shopping!
