trend watch: LACE DRESSES

Okay so the lace trend is nothing new but it's still going strong and still fabulous!  A lot of celebs have been stepping out in everything from colorful to neutral lace.  Check out how you can get the look for less...

Thandie Newton attended the Good Deeds premiere in a neutral in a muted 3/4 sleeve gold lace mini dress.  You can get a similar look right now with the Traffic People Lace Tutu dress available at Asos.  This dress normally retails for $145 but is on sale right now for only $71!   



Or you could heat things up a bit with a bright red lace dress like Stacy Keibler did at the Marchesa Fall 2012 runway show.  You can get some similar looks for less right now on ModCloth.  Go bold with the Citrus and Listen Dress for $54.99 or go a little darker with the Infrared Lace Dress for $72.99.  No matter which one you choose you are sure to make a statement!


Don't want to fully commit to the lace look?  Take a page from Amber Heard's style book and choose a dress with just a little lace detail on it.  The Laced Sweetheart Dress is only $58 right now at Nasty Gal.  This style is sweet, feminine, sexy and totally affordable!

The only grouse I have with lace is it should be soft and not scratchy! Love the cream dress

Very happy that lace is holding on. I like clothes with a little bit of lacy details.

Lace is everywhere right now and I can't wait to jump on the bandwagon! I have my eye on a navy dress that should get me through at least three seasons of events. Love your picks!
