Since the 15th century lace has been seen at the very height of fashion, now in 2012 not much has changed! Since the beginning of the year when Louis Vuitton dressed Kate Moss in a gorgeous lace dress we knew that lace was going to be big this year.
So why not take a look at our fabulous range of lace looks here at Simply Be. For the summer, try out this flattering lace top, available in pastel pink you’ll not only look the part but also be flaunting one of the gorgeous pastel colours of the season:
If you prefer a subtler hint of lace, (because lets face it sometimes too much lace isn’t a good thing) check out our fantastic Frock and Frill Pleat Lace Trim dress, fantastic for both a casual day around the shops or a night out on the town. You can also accessorise with our fabulous lace head wrap. With head wraps all the rage at the moment you can’t go wrong!
Lace is also due to be big in autumn and winter this year, with the recent Valentino fashion show giving strong hints of darker coloured lace being a staple winter wardrobe item. Our beautiful navy blue lace tunic and elegant contrast lace detail tunic, are both perfect for a casual feel without compromising on style:

Whether you want to create the impression of incredible curves, or you just want to show off the gorgeous curves you already have to the max, an optical illusion dress is the on-trend way to do it! By using different blocks of colour at the centre and edge of the dress, the eye is drawn to the inner panel of the dress to dramatic effect.
It’s no surprise that the optical illusion dress has been such a huge hit with celebrities – check out this gallery of gorgeous optical illusion dresses! Kate Winslet, Kim Kardashian and many more have been see wowing the crowds in this amazing style.
Our Monochrome Silhouette Dress is the perfect example of an optical illusion dress:
Gorgeous blogger Allie rocked this dress at a cinema premiere recently – fab or what?
We also have a fierce black and red optical illusion dress – but this one is selling out fast ladies so you’ll have to be quick to get the remaining sizes!
Why not try an optical illusion pencil skirt instead? It creates the look of incredible curves!
