I've seen a couple of people wearing gorgeous long-sleeved creamy lace-tops and I really really want one!!! They had camisoles underneath and then bare arms under the lace.... Cream looked beautiful, black would also be nice. I think it's the kind of look that can look stylish or naff.... I'd like advice on wear to buy a top that falls into the latter category please!

(I guess this trend was inspired by Kate M's wedding dress but I've always been a big fan of lace!)

I ahve almost exactly same as this from H and M in black, slightly more boxy cut I wear it ALLL the time. Love it

cybbo Thu 09-Jun-11 21:43:22

also you said 'latter' category...which was naff. Thinking you meant former

this is very beautiful in real life not a great picture but very elegant. They do black too I think.

It is a terrible, terrible set of pictures. You will have to trust me.

can't believe I said I wanted a naff one blush.... thanks very very much, these are all looking along the right lines. laredoute one is particularly tempting as so cheap!

Little bargain one here at New Look. Only in size 14 upwards though. Bought a similar one for DD a few weeks ago - none for me in store then! angry

It may be a little thick lacewise, but I bought the most beautiful cream lace top from Massimo Dutti yesterday, I can't find a pic of it on their website tho.

It's got bracelet length sleeves and a cream camisole underneath and is simply gorgeous! It's only just come into stores, so it's worth checking out smile

I second LTEC on the Reiss Minna lace top - I have two - LOVE THEM - and have washed well on wool cycle

Is that one a bit straight-up-and-down? It's a gorgeous top, and I know that shape suits some, but it bulks me out as I have boobs and hips.

cybbo Fri 10-Jun-11 16:08:18

Clingy lace is baaaad

FriedaLivery Fri 10-Jun-11 16:08:49

i think its a bit fussy and often nylonny

FriedaLivery Fri 10-Jun-11 16:09:04

I too bought the cream Massimo Dutti one yesterday in Barcelona on our honeymoon and wore it out last night to dinner. I felt great in it and it has a really flattering neckline with a lovely length sleeve. Sadly am now home but still have my gorgeous top!
