Although not as big as last season - lace is still a major trend for A/W 2010. It is extremely versatile and can look gothic, girly or anything in between.
For feminine inspiration, look to Dolce and Gabbana. Known as the masters of lace, the models looked incredibly sexy in their creations. For more gothic-inspired lace Paul and Joe's is your brand. Paired with ankle boots and fishnet tights their creations are definitely not saccharine-sweet.
If you are nervous about wearing lace, try it in the form of jackets. They will instantly glam up a casual look. Or, if even that is a step too far, lace bags and accessories are a simple and easy way to wear the trend.
