Lace it up
￼ ￼ ￼
A whole host of A-list stars have been tip-to-toe in black lace recently, declaring that this is the best way to work sexy glam. Just check out Amber Heard who was sophisticated and sleek last night thanks to the lace underlay which gave an antique feel to her Oscar de la Renta gown, while Sophia Bush took the feminine look a sexy step further when she strutted her stuff in this sheer Max Azria number at the Hollywood Style Awards. We’re loving the turtleneck detail that adds a demure touch to the racy frock and as these ladies prove, it’s best to keep your accessories to a minimum and your hair simple. Meanwhile, Taylor Momsen shows us how to work the trend with an edge and consequently brings it bang up to date. She wore a lace top and matching patterned tights with her leather minidress and alabster skin - just the ticket to maintain her Goth-glam look.

Boots are reaching new heights and the latest way to wear them is over-the-knee. They’re the ultimate statement in footwear and are worth investing in now, because we bet they’ll be an invaluable garment for years to come. Yesterday, we spotted Tyra Banks working a pair with a white shift and leather gloves but they don’t have to equal Pretty Woman-sexy, especially as they’re such a fashionable way to cover up your pins this Autumn. Stella certainly knows how to keep her boots simple by teaming them with black leggings and a colour popping coat — a look that works from the morning school run straight through to the evening. This sexy stretch style is tricky to pull off but if they’re good enough for Stella, then they’re good enough for us! And take a look at Tolula Adeyemi who brought a fun spin with these striped wedges that perfectly showed off her toned thighs at the Palm Phone Pre Launch Party last night. We're sold!

Leggings have been on our style radar for quite some time now and it looks like they’re set to stay as our favourite wardrobe staple. Lourdes proved that even gingham leggings can look super-cool when paired with her lived-in biker boots and a black top under a cropped jacket. Keeping the outfit simple really makes the pattern pop and her cute hair bow gives the outfit a girlie twist. 90210 star, Jessica Lowndes, also kept her look low key and to great avail as all attention was on those sequinned leggings. Yet another lady who proved that a boyfriend blazer atop a pair of black leggings make for the perfect fashion statement is Blake Lively. She screamed laid back cool with her wet-look leggings and trusty tweed Smythe jacket at the premiere of her boyf’s new film, The Stepfather. Does this girl ever have an off day?
