One of the fashion trends that I love in 2013 is the lace trend that was all over the runways of Spring 2013. The lace accents that designers used in tops, dresses, and bottoms add a touch of classic elegance in the outfits. I just found myself adding a few pieces of this lace trend in my closet including one from Anatomie that I very much appreciate, the Lucia Lace Dress. It’s got the stylish designer look and quality without the high maintenance requirement that often comes with such labels.
Anatomie is a designer fashion brand from Kate and Shawn Boyer that feature pants, tops, jackets, and dresses that are perfect for stylish travelers. Their clothes are made from the finest French and Italian fabrics that make them versatile and durable. The blue Lucia Lace Dress that I got is a short sleeved lace dress that falls just above the knee. I love the way that the dress fits on my body, hugging my curves without looking or feeling tight. It also has a way to make you look modestly sexy with the lace details and sheer overlay that shows a bit of skin.
But more than the look and the feel, this dress is fashionably handy. Unlike my other designer outfits, this dress is lightweight and easy to pack in the suitcase. There was no need for a special box or packaging, I just placed it along with my other clothes without worrying about getting it damaged. Best of all its wrinkle-free! I tried it on fresh out of the suitcase and there was not even a crinkle. Another thing that I liked about it is that its machine washable. This means I can save on dry cleaning expenses and I can wear the dress as much as I want without much risk of fading or damaging the fabric, especially during long travels or cruises.
I find it to be a good alternative for a little black dress when one is on the go. Pair it up with a nice pair of heels and simple but elegant earrings for evening parties or just don a pair of sandals and cool sunglasses for a stroll in your island getaway. This Anatomie lace dress is lightweight, versatile, and stylish, everything that makes a fashionably great travel outfit.
