Delicate, oh-so-feminine lace has a fierce new avatar

Updated: Jun 10, 2014 13:06 IST

The dainty, oh-so-feminine Chantilly lace has come of age. Fierce, structured stencil pattern is the new avatar of ­traditional lace. Be it dresses, skirts or even shoes and bags, laser-cut out patterns at the hottest trend in town. We spotted many celeb fashionistas upping the lace ante in stencilled, laser-cut form of good ol’ lace. Go ahead, take your pick of celeb inspiration to rock this trend as the days of delicate floral lace bodice and sleeves on your dress are long gone. The laser-cutout version of new-age lace packs a punch in the form of cutesy ­honeycomb patterns, ­intricate ­scalloped ­hemlines and geometric flowers. (Text: Arpita Kala)
Pop colour, peplum and cool laser-cut lace pattern, Julia Jones aces this look to a tee (left); Malaika Arora Khan keeps the head-to-toe-white look interesting with a pop of blue on her feet (centre); We are not on board with the necklace but Sophia Bush aces the look with her strappy footwear.
