From the high collars of the 16th century, to the flapper chic dresses of the 1920s and the fingerless gloves of the 1980s, fashion designers have had a love affair with lace. Different from its trendy crochet sister, lace transcends time and continues to be popular largely because of its tremendous versatility.
I recently asked a group of friends ranging in age from 23 to 64 to define “Missy” or “Misses” fashion. Every one of them referred to it as more of a size rather than a style. In the fashion industry, Missy does indeed refer to the cut of a garment but traditionally it has also been defined as conservative fashion for mature women.
