Thus, if we were to point out the most attractive and appealing options, the list of names would be quite a long one.

The colorful solutions were the following noteworthy aspect here. The super gorgeous bohemian take on lace presented by Zuhair Murad is the following, coming up as a basic means for creating transparency plays and curious texture effects with colorful yet mainly monochrome pieces. For some more casual and stylish interpretations you may also have a look at the tops using lace patterns presented by Louis Vuitton.
