Mint velvet scarf

Season after season we have seen lace as a prominent trend on the catwalks with designers such as Dolce and Gabbana and Ralph Lauren making good use of the delicate fabric. There is something very elegant and pretty about lace which is why it has stood the test of time. Reminiscent of the Royals, the trend dates back to Queen Elizabeth where lace collars, ruffles, caps and shawls were all the rage during the 17th century.

Today lace is a great fabric as its versatility means that you can create a variety of looks that encompass pretty, flirty, romantic chic and lady like charm. However there is a fine line between right and wrong! So, here are my top tips for wearing delicate lace without looking like a runaway bride...

Try to use lace as an accessory Lace accessories are great as they add a delicate touch to your outfit and you can dress it up with scarves and wraps. Sweet lace collars are useful as they can make ordinary tops look dressier. This mink lace scarf from Mint Velvet will complement a multitude of outfits for summer and would make an elegant edition to your collection of accessories. £39.00.
