AMAZING LACE IT’S OFFICIAL: Lace is fall’s “it” fabric. The ladylike material got a makeover at Prada, Derek Lam and Dolce & Gab-bana with striking colours and opulent details, while glamour girl Blake Lively (above) took on the trend with an elegant and subtly suggestive Chanel minidress. One thing’s clear: the look is a far cry from your grandmother’s lace.
Cotton/polyurethane-blend, $248, French Connection.
EASY RIDER Channel your inner biker babe with a motorcycle jacket. It strikes the perfect balance between masculine and feminine, without looking like you just rode in on a Harley.
