As the weather is warming up, finding great lace tops for spring is a great way to dress up your closet this season. We love finding ways to incorporate lace from tops that are all lace to tops that use lace detail as trim or accents. Here are a few of our favorites:
For a completely lace look consider the Lace Tank with a Pocket by designer Collective Concepts. This designer tank top is reasonably priced at $55 and features a racerback and a pocket in front. It is a sheer lace and is unlined so you will likely want to layer it over another tank, but we love the options to add a pop of color under the lace. Available in black with black trim, this tank top is super versatile and can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
If you are looking for great tops that are accented with lace detail consider the Hollie Crew Top. This top is a perfect spring top with the Bee yellow color and of course we love the lace detail around the neckline. The Hollie Crew Top is a great short sleeve spring top with lace accents which really make this top distinctive. This top by designer Ella Moss is part of the Hollie Collection which also features similar lace detail around the neckline of the Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress. These lace accents are elegant ways to really add some added style to both the dress and the top.
We also love the Lace Trim Stripe tank by Collective Concepts as another top with lace detail. Here the detail is also around the neckline and then wide contrasting stripes in either navy or red. This tank is also a racerback and with a looser flared fit, this tank is a great spring / summer tank top that we love to wear. Priced at $58 the Lace Trim Stripe Tank top is a great value for a designer tank top. It is extremely comfortable and a great summer statement piece.
As you can see from these examples, there are a variety of great tops with lace accents or even solid lace depending on the style or look you are going for. This season we are big fans of incorporating contrasting textures and accents on tops or dresses as ways to really add a pop of detail or “fringe” to basic or simple styles. In the current economy, this is a great way to make sure your pieces last you far longer than one season and can help justify a higher price for the higher quality piece that is a great statement piece for your wardrobe. In addition, there is nothing worse than snagging your lace top so having lace accents can help to increase the longevity of your top. There are lots of different lace alternatives out there and lace is a great feminine fabric which really does make a statement in whatever style piece you choose.
