Just as certain pieces make their way in and out of fashion, certain ways of styling the classics are also persuaded by what's in right now. As evidenced by street style looks we witnessed during fashion month, the look du jour when it comes to lace on top is quite formulaic: a fitted long-sleeve tucked into a high-waisted midi skirt. The results are perfectly put together with an appropriate dose of sex appeal, nodding to the ladylike sensibilities of yesteryear infused with fashion-forward brio.
If deduced to occasion, the look is at once brunch with the in-laws, while also an impromptu cocktail party that turns it up after hours. We've seen lace overlays all over the bottom half, highlighted by Jessica Alba pulling off a completely sheer skirt in Paris, but lace on top continues to hold its ground. Though the look is nothing new, its snug fit tucked into a high-waisted skirt is the return of a time-tested silhouette that looks as fresh as ever.
