LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2012) - Inspired by the Pretty Gothic trend, and with a stylish nod to the catwalk shows of Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino, this fashion story is perfect for your touch of 'Bad Romance' this Autumn/Winter. A touch of subtle lace instantly lifts shirt dresses for a day, but for evening and the impending party season, the glamour is styled up a notch when juxtaposed with leather trims, sultry figure-hugging shapes and pretty pleats. It's a vintage-inspired look that looks very 'now' on modern separates, evoking the style sense of fashionistas from Olivia Palermo to Alexa Chung.
For your first foray into the trend, the Victoriana blouse is your new style essential. Team this statement top with a sleek skirt for a ladylike finish or a pair of slim trousers for a more androgynous twist - look out for the key design details of a ruffle-neck and puffed sleeves. Across Oasis dresses and skirts, there's lace prints on the latest peplum shapes for a modern twist with all the look of lace but on more familiar fabrics.
As the temperatures drop and we move towards winter, lace cocktail dresses look effortlessly cool layered under classic leather biker jackets and finished with suede or leather ankle boots. It's all in the detail when it comes to accessories, so team lace with gorgeous embellishments such as statement costume jewellery and oversized gems. Afraid of the dark? This gothic-inspired trend isn't all about black - sumptuous shades of lace in dramatic jewel tones such as emerald, amethyst and ruby ensure lace is pitched at the more girly end of gothic.
