The right lace dress

The right lace dress can be a strong foundation piece of your curated wardrobe. Its the kind of piece that can transcend eras (take it from soft 60s to hippie 70s to grunge 90s with mere change in accessories) and can flit easily between the seasons as well. Chilly nights? Add some opaques. Warm, summer’s morning? A wide-brimmed hat and sandals are effortless perfection. For a smarter look, just add heels.

Before you make a purchase also consider two things: the colour, and the quality. The latter is obvious for quality lace lasts longer and sits better. For colour, if you’re buying as a staple and not a statement piece, you can’t go wrong with versatile colours like white, cream, black or navy.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
