Trend to Try: White Lace for Daytime

(Source: Elisabetta Villa/Getty Images Europe, Bauergriffin.Com, Todd Oren/Getty Images North America)White lace dresses were everywhere on the spring runways, from Nina Ricci's frothy cocktail frocks to Erdem's sexy sheer confections. But unless you're walking down the aisle with a bouquet in hand, the look can be hard to pull off in real life. Unless, that is, you take a cue from young Hollywood and recast the classic material for day.

Rendered in sporty silhouettes and paired with casual separates, the fabric looks lighthearted and decidedly hip—a far cry from the virginal frills of Say Yes to the Dress. Take, for instance, the gamine Peter Pan-collared Dolce & Gabbana shirt Emma Stone chose for a daytime press event earlier this month.

We'll personally be pairing our white lace with distressed cut-offs and light-wash skinnies, but the style looks smart with everything from wide-legged trousers to spring's short flouncy skirts.
