15 Plus Size Lace Clothes For Lovers Of Frilly Femme Details — PHOTOS
Lace is a decadent fabric that can add a touch of elegance to any garment. As spring is well under way in much of the world, you might be searching for the perfect plus size lace fashions to add to your wardrobe. After all, lace is a cyclical trend that has come back into vogue more times than you can probably count.
Lace is reminiscent of the Victorian era, and the modern Victoriana trend that is often seen alongside Steampunk fashions. However, it is also a material that has been long used in the creation of very specific garments. I mean, lingerie wouldn’t be anywhere near as saucy without the addition of lace. It’s also utilized in a big way within the wedding dress industry. Remember Kate Middleton’s gorgeous wedding dress with its sophisticated, statement lace sleeves? Not to mention all those baby christening gowns of the world.
Lace is also timeless and can be worn at any age. Kim Kardashian and North West prove it's a good look for anyone. In fact, Kim K seems to be a big fan of the material: She was snapped in a decadent lace gown during pregnancy and she named her black lace Givenchy dress her fave ensemble of 2014 — which, considering how many outfits she wears, is really saying something.
If it’s good enough for Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian, it’s good enough for everyone else, right? So here are some enchanting plus size lace pieces to see you through 2016.
