Lace is a great way to incorporate vintage fabrics and vintage styles into modern fashions. If you are looking for that perfect lace vintage top you certainly can find a number of great options this season. Lace is a classic fabric or accent, but it is also a fabric that is making a bit of a comeback. We’re seeing a lot more lace tops and dresses this season and so many great tops with feminine details to maximize the lace detail.
As an example of great lace vintage style tops, consider the Lace Tank with a Pocket by designer Collective Concepts. This tank features a black lace with black trim around the hem, sleeves and a fabulous pocket as an accent. This tank is sheer so it is great for layering which gives you all sorts of additional options for accent colors to pair with it. This also gives you a lot of versatility with options to dress it up or dress it down as necessary. Some of our favorite ways to style this tank include pairing it with a black cotton tank underneath and the Fanya skirt by Velvet or with a great belt over contrasting capris or leggings like Velvet’s Ritzy leggings. Whatever your style preference, this tank is a great way to wear a lace vintage top and best of all it is a reasonably priced top at $55 which is an added bonus.
Another example by designer Ella Moss is the Hollie Crew Top featuring lace detail around the crew neckline in a gorgeous yellow color. This short sleeve top features an intricate lace knit woven around the shoulders and neckline giving this top a very distinctive look that is perfect for summer. The bright yellow color is a good yellow and looks great as an accent with blacks, blues, whites and greys. A great way to incorporate lace detail into your wardrobe, this top is currently on sale so is also at a great price $49 at Vintage Fringe.
Both of these tops are great examples of how lace detail can really bring a vintage trend to a modern style top. Of course there are a number of other ways to use lace that are really more accents rather than the defining characteristics of the style of the top such as the Lace Trip Stripe Tank top also by Collective Concepts or in dresses too like the Oma Cap Sleeve Dress by Velvet or the sister dress to the Hollie Crew, the Hollie Racerback Maxi dress. Even if lace is only the detail and not the primary fabric for the top, tank or dress, the lace look really can transform a piece from simple to elegant. You can easily see though how easy it is to find lace incorporated into a variety of great stylish pieces and at reasonable prices. Of course finding a great statement piece is often an investment in your wardrobe, but of course you can also find great pieces that will work within most of our currently reduced budgets as well.
