Can we wear what our daughters wear?
It is not so much I want to wear exactly what they are wearing it is more that I like their take on current fashion. My girls are both quite different in their personal style; I am lucky I have contrasting viewpoints to learn from.
Personal style is all about adaption and those who know how to adapt fashion to suit their own look are the women we take notice of.
When I think of the fashion icons we so admire they are generally women who have revamped a look to suit. They will often repeat, just choosing to change colours or textures.
Think of Emmanuelle Alt from Vogue Paris, she is the master of ever changing jackets and pants or Jenna Lyons who wears a multitude of 3/4 coats in so many varieties of shape and colour. Carine Roitfeld knows the pencil skirt is her pal and stays close; Iris Apfel is the queen of an over-sized accessory.
There is something we can wear, over and over that our daughters love.
Can you guess? It is lace and in particular lace “tee shirts”.
I have decided the lace “tee shirt” style or shell is my new go to for the coming months; the style works in place of a tee but makes a welcome change. I like lace worn with my jeans and with tailored pants; I like the lace top with or without a jacket, depending on the sleeves. Adding lace is a small change but one to make the old feel up to date.
I have always loved lace and in particular lace skirts but when I saw my girl wearing a pretty lace tee,
I thought, why not. xv
