One of my favorite trends is lace over a dress. One of my least favorite trends are those lace shorts I’ve been seeing women wear. The difference between the two is what they do for a woman’s body. The dress is cute and feminine. It makes women look like they are women and adorable while doing so. The shorts are always too baggy in the back or too short or too long or too something. It’s a great idea. It should breath and keep you cool but it never flatters a figure while being worn. However I will take these shorts every day over a lace crop top. Although a super cute idea they can go from fashion genius to fashion desister in less time than it takes for the top to be put on. When worn with high wasted pants, they are great but many times in practical situations they are the first to break the rule of the belly button. You can show mid-drift but either above or below the belly button. It’s the easiest way to keep things classy. So here are some of my favorite lace pieces. I’m almost finished making my own high-waisted lace skirt. I can’t wait to show you all when it’s finished.
Prints, after many years, are coming back. Thank goodness. I have always loved prints. I used to have this amazing polkadot dress in 2007 that was not really fashionable but I wore it anyway. It was navy blue with white dots. It was cut into sections going down about every six inches the dots would change sizes. I still miss that dress 5 years later. As I sit in a coffee shop right now four people are wearing prints, an abstract watercolor inspired print, a pasily, a plad and I have on a cartoon skirt.
I can’t stand the slogan teeshirt, so many of them are something along the lines of look how smart I am, or look how good looking I am, which will only be worn by the dumbest and least attractive people. Then again if an increadibly good looking genius wore them that would probably be worse. But so long slogan tees and hello prints. Not every print works on every person. Andy Reid, when he was the coach of the Eagles, used to wear this shirt that was vertical strips and that was never a good look. But that could be more of an Andy Reid problem then a stripes problem. There are so many new and inventive ways to use prints that solids just aren’t fun enough to use.
