Lace is a wardrobe classic and the go-to trend for any special occasion. It was all over the Spring Summer 2015 catwalks and High Street shops last year and now it's no surprise that it's back again this season.
Popular during the festive party season as well as for wedding outfits, lace tops and dresses are also a popular addition to any Spring and Summer wardrobe. As lace is a light fabric made principally from cotton it is cool and easy to wear.
Lace Tops & Dresses
The buyers at Goose Island have come back from Italy this year with a beautiful, flattering range of lace tops and dresses in pretty pastel colours for a simmering summer look.
Our new, free size cotton shirt with lacy jumper overlay and a matching scarf is ideal to wear together or separately according to the occasion. The quarter length sleeves hide the upper arms and the layers help to disguise any lumpy bits.
For a more formal look, the lacy jumper can be worn over a fitted vest top and tucked into a high-waist skirt or with skinny jeans and heels for a smart-casual look.
Available in white, cream or light blue, the combination top also looks great with wide-legged trousers for comfort and coolness. It’s also a great addition to your holiday luggage as it’s easy to pack and the lace jumper overlay can be worn over a swimming costume to the pool or down the beach.
Lace Evening Dresses
If you’re looking for a bit more ‘bling’ in the evening, then our lace jumper with sequin detailing and white cotton shirt is ideal. It lace jumper can also be worn with a brightly coloured cami and mid skirt for a classy wedding outfit alternative, accessorised with a hat, jewellery and contrasting shoes and handbag.
Red and black lace dresses have been a popular choice for parties and other special occasions for many years. This year, we have introduced a Spring range of pastel lace dresses which can be worn at day or night.
For a casual, day time look, simply pop on a pair of flat pumps and you will look comfortable as well as pretty. Dress up these lacy numbers with high wedges or sandals and a statement piece of jewellery for a fabulous evening look.
These simple, flattering items are also ideal for weddings as the quarter length sleeves cover your arms (so no need for a jacket) and can be worn at throughout the day and into the evening party too.
