    Some things never go out of style, and a classic lace dress is right up there with red lipstick. Our fondness for lace is truly limitless, and the "lace is more" mantra rings especially true in those gah!-10-minutes-to-get-ready moments. Whether it's crafted from chantilly or eyelet lace (or everything in between!), the delicately feminine style is always utterly sophisticated and a tried-and-true staple.
