Spring/Summer events are just around the corner, and we thought we would focus in on one of the major and sexiest trends for 2013. The alluring and beautiful Luxe Lace is a definite for this season; whether dressing fresh and feminine for a day date, looking sophisticated at the races, or dressing up for that special Valentines date then this look is the key. Lace headlined this year’s S/S collections, and Team LBD believe it will still have an elegant grip in the years to come; so we think it’s worth investing in a sexy lace little black dress. The romantic legend of lace traces back hundreds of years, but it remains a mystery exactly where it came from: the development of the hand woven and needle lace came from Venice in the 17th century, and made its mark in the fashion industry for royalty. ButBritain soon stepped up to the mark, and invented the first machine to create delicate lace patterns; making major statement pieces, and intricate accessories, like collars and cuffs. Today talented designers from around the world still love to indulge in this attractive material, andHollywoodstars continue to flaunt it at awards and the red carpet. On the catwalks and shows this year, designers like Erdem, Mulberry, and Marc Jacobs have kept this style looking feminine, luxurious and very fresh.
