Now, we know what you want to say—sarcastic tone and all, “Lace for spring? Mind-blowing.” But, once you take a close look at the styles setting the trend, you’ll likely sing another tune. See, the new lace pieces are far from the ones you typically see alongside pastels, pre-Easter. They’re “peasant” and “indie,” versus “sweet” and “pretty”—and work best when the dress code is “casual-cool.” For instance, the new lace-trimmed jackets? Perfect for a music festival. And we love a lace tank for a day about town. As for our favorite, no-fail pairings? Denim, gladiator sandals and classic (but not predictable!) floral crowns.
