Fashion Blogger Trend Challenge: Lace Madeleine Bowden
Lace is commonly thought to be sexy and vampy in nature, but it can also convey demure, lady-like qualities, as UK bloggette Madeleine Bowden demonstrates with her white Victorian-inspired lace skirt. She kept her separates simple with a timeless Breton stripe tee, but added scorching hits of on-trend neon to elevate her look from Hamptons beauty to Tuileries-ready.
Style Tip: The key to giving that extra oomph to a lace-based look is to add something unexpected like Bowden's use of neon to spice up basic bread-and-butter pieces such as classic button-downs and tailored blazers.
The Look: H&M top and necklace, Zara dress, shoes and bag.
