No longer reserved solely for a walk down the aisle, lace is making a huge appearance this season in all shapes and forms.
This summer we are seeing an array of wearable lace items for the everyday woman. From blazers to skirts, and everything in between, we can’t help but feel a sense of regained sophistication. Some of our favourite items this season have subtle lace detailing that brings some sexy peek-a-boo elements to an ensemble. We are also completely in love with the fully lace pieces not only because they are beautiful, but because they are timeless and won't ever go out of fashion. Whether it’s a romantic accent to an outfit or an overall look, rest assured that your look will be effortlessly elegant.
It is the epitome of femininity. There is nothing like a little lace to make us feel like a lady!

In 1926, Wharton School of Business economist George Taylor coined the theory known as the “Hemline Index”. The Hemline Index describes the relationship between the economy and hemlines, in which the length of women’s skirts are an indicator of stock market potential. In other words: the shorter the skirt the better the economy. Well, we are sorry to inform you Mr. Taylor, but we will have to refute your claim because we are seeing skirts of ALL lengths for spring 2015. While it is true that in past years mini or maxi skirts have been the ‘it’ skirt for that particular season, we are seeing a newfound appreciation of all hemlines. Women rejoice!
There is just something about a great skirt that makes us feel feminine and gives us that boost of confidence to help us look and feel our best. Not only are there no rules to follow when it comes to skirt length this spring, we are seeing a wide range in style, shape, and colour. Some of our go-to patterns, such as florals and stripes are classics and are always popular for spring; however, it would be an understatement to say that sheer is hot right now. What we love about a sheer skirt is that they are so sexy and yet still sophisticated. Whatever your favourite style is, trust that it will be on trend.
As summer is quickly approaching, we are getting our closets ready for the warm weather ahead of us. Summer is the time for us to live in the moment and be carefree, an attitude that we try to replicate when choosing our wardrobes. We don’t want to fuss about our outfits, we want easy pieces that are soft and light, while still being chic and giving us cool-girl street credit.
It is now time to tuck away our cashmere *tear*, tweed, and merino wool, and pull out pieces that are open wovens or lightweight in nature. Certain fabrics, such as linen, cotton, and ramie, are great choices for those hot summer nights because they are breathable, keep us looking fresh, and can still be layered without feeling too heavy. The best part is that they are also transitional pieces that can be worn into fall and winter, layered under our sweaters and coats.
While we will only stop wearing black when they make a darker colour, we like most of our summer attire in whites, neutrals, and pastel hues. Shop some of our favourite summer easy breezy looks here!
