I think lace is timeless, if it isn’t overdone or coupled with giant 80s hairstyles. I like coloured lace and ribbons, especially when they’re put together for a wedding dress or reception.
The intricate beadwork on the above dress is gorgeous . . .
modern and elegant at the same time.
The above is much more my style, though. I like the mint underneath the cream lace.
The bit of lace on this dress is understated and lovely:
