Love Lace

As far as Fall 2011 fashion week goes, it looks like we are off to a good start. First Lady favorite Jason Wu (Michelle Obama wore the fledgling designer to her inauguration and many times since) showed a grown-up, sophisticated and very ladylike collection.  The reviews were raves for the most part...  The overwhelming theme was lace...on the sleeve of a coat or a sweatshirt, down the sides of a pencil skirt or a slim paint, for example.

To be honest, while lace trends come in and out pretty regularly, I think of the frilly fabric as a classic. I love a lace trimmed camisole peaking out under a sweater, or a lacy top underneath a suit jacket. While it is standard for evening, a little lace detail here and there looks great paired with jeans for day. Here are some lace picks that are in store now.

We shall see as the week progresses if this will become a full-fledged fashion moment. In the meantime, I am putting my lacy numbers back into rotation.
