I have a thing for lace skirts. I have about seven, and most of them are black. I gravitate towards them in the store and even when I remember the ungodly amount of lace skirts I have, I still want more.
They just seem so flexible to me. But how, you say, could a sultry little black lace skirt ever be flexible? Aha, I say. It all depends on how you wear it. A lace skirt can of course be sexy, as is their natural state. They can also be very girly, in a more demure silhouette or a pastel colour. They can give you shades of 80's rock goddess paired with something spiky or in leather.
Lace can add a great layer of texture to your outfits without too much clutter or being overly trendy. It's also everywhere-- there's lace dresses, skirts, tops and H&M even has a pair of lace pants on their website which are simultaneously intriguing and terrifying.
