Lace is The New Opaque

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The title says it all.

Opaque tights : So 2006.

Lace tights : So Agyness, so 2007

Wear them, like Elise and dear Agyness, with micro-mini black shorts, or with a mini-skirt like Irina. Think mini, and there you go. Pair them with chunky wedges or tiny ankle booties/shoeboots, or suede flats. They may not be the most practical thing for now as it's rather cold, but who says you have to wear them outside? As it's soon to be party-time, dress them up with shiny mini-dresses , long glitter tanks or solid cotton ones with patent platforms.

I didn't wrote this (Kez did) but I loved it so I'll put it anyway.

"Tsubi and Cheap Monday have released coloured jeans two seasons
ago. Lia (Astrid) summed up the entire sweater dress, coloured tights and leather boots look around last year, which she did flawlessly.
The cropped leather jacket is pretty much this season's staple. Backstage at Galliano models pair a sheer graphic tee with a thin gray hoodie, patterned high tops, mildly distressed straight leg jeans and a quilted leather medium sized bag.

The coming cruise collection sees everything in jewel tones.
Admittedly, skinny jeans are still a wardrobe staple, paired with a
jewel toned top, cropped leather jacket, flat tapered boots or a dramatic heeled ankle boot and either a logo jacquard bag or a quilted leather one you can still avoid the entire top-balletflat-overused look.
Alternatively, an oversized shirt with cropped sleeves (so that it lightly caps over your shoulder) and patent leather Gauffre bag (of Miu Miu and Prada) in black or red can still be paired with skinnies and round toed pumps.As for skirts, wear them with men's dress shirts and tights, I like any leopard/cheetah accessories. YSL released a pony hair leopard cylindrical bag and Bruno Frisoni (the master behind Roger Vivier) has the most amazing pony hair leopard round toed heels. "

That's weird, i was digging out some balenciaga lacey stockings from my granny to wear with shorts this morning. But then i decided it was cold. so I wore one step up...green tights and knee length pinstripe shorts. Oh well. I guess i'll be last year-y for the sake of the weather. love you boks.

I've been thinking I need to go pick up a pair of black lace tights...for now cream crochet will have to do though.

Something about black lace turns me off. I guess its just that after the whole lingerie-as-street-wear trend I'm ready to leave the lace on the lingerie. Maybe I'll come around.

If this is 2007, please let it be 2006 forever.
