Luck be a lady in lace – and you’ve come to the right place if you noticed the rising trend of gorgeous lacy accents on the runways and are ready to weave it into your Fall wardrobe. Erdem showed us how this classic material is always ripe for a refresh by layering Chantilly inserts and appliques with bright hues-creating looks that are at the same time flirty, feminine and edgy. Mixing tradition with creative innovation is what modern style is all about…now add a dash of DIY with this Lace Embellished skirt we whipped up with our friends at Who What Wear!

To create, use a solid black skirt as your canvas.  Choose 3 different shades of lace or lace trim. We used about 1/2 a yard of the black lace and  yellow lace  and 1 yard of the white lace trim.  Cut out lace pieces from each color and layer creating a pattern on the skirt.  Use pins to hold lace pieces in place as you arrange.  Once satisfied with your layout begin to sew each lace cluster to the skirt.
