Laced with Love: My top 5 Lace dresses for SS11

I am so glad the lace trend is sticking around for at least another season. Over winter it was all about black or white lace. But spring/summer sees more colourful lace garments coming on the scene, while black is traded in for navy and white for softer creams.

Lea Michele :: Michelle Williams :: Dita Von Teese :: Natalie Portman :: Taylor Swift

Although Primark doesn’t have an online store, if you love Taylor Swift’s cream lace dress above then get to your nearest Primark as they have an almost identical version in there. And I have it 😀 … Loved it so much I bought it in black too.  Each for the bargain price of £15.00.

Here are my top 5 high street lacey dress buys…

1. Peter Pan Collar Lace Dress£45.00 £36.00 –

This little dress is so cute, both in teal and black. I love the little collar and the open back. It’s very short, but the high neckline balances that out. The blue is gorgeous for a daytime look with either black tights or bare legs, and the black will be great for a night out.

2. Bell Sleeve Lace Shift Dress – £48.00 – Topshop.

This cute dress looks lovely in navy, it’s a softer shade than black and therefore translates into the summer months. Wear with a high beige ankle boot and loose curls. This dress also comes in a deep red.

3. Miso Crochet Top Dress – 34.99 – Republic

I love the way this dress is divided into two sections, with the floaty pleated bottom and the lacey top. It will look lovely with either bare legs and high tan heels, or with black tights and simple heeled Mary-Janes.

4. Butter Milk Lace Long Prom Dress £65.00 £52.00 –

Love Love Love. This dress is gorgeous, it has the longer hem and also the lace trend rolled into one. I love the shows the model wears with it too. Stick with simple jewelery and natural waves to the hair. It’s perfect for meeting the other halfs parents, or a Christening. Dress it down with black tights, boots and a leather jacket.

5. Doll & Frog Navy Lace Dress – £29.00 – Dorothy Perkins

This dress is cute, with the exposed back and slither of lace along the hem to show some more leg. It’s demure and sexy at the same time. It looks great with simple court shoes, but I would go with either tan or beige rather than black. Stick to bare legs with navy as it won’t work with black.
