This is not dramatic and mysterious at all... it's romantic, pretty and very feminine!
If you follow celebrity fashion, the very first statement lace dress from Spring/Summer 2011 made a fabulous appearance on the red carpet at the BFI London Film Festival.. that was Michelle Williams in a bright red lace dress by Erdem. It remains one of the most popular "single dress" stories on our celebrity site! And yes, you can actually buy her dress online now..
The Spring 2011 version of the lace trend can be subtle (lace trim or simple accents) but if you want to embrace the look, nothing beats a lace dress. There are some terrific choices - and since lace is the focal point of the dress, you want to consider a simple shape. Shift dresses, sleeveless or 3/4 length sleeves.. nothing that is too busy or layered in this case.
While lace looks lovely for a night out, this is actually a daytime trend as well. Lace shirts & cardigans paired with elegant trousers are the perfect choice for the office. And last but not least, keep accessories to a minimum, let the lace make the statement.
