These Lace Dresses Will Seriously Sweeten Up Your Wardrobe

We’d be willing to bet that the last time you threw on a lace dress, you were pairing it with frilly socks, pigtails, and a shiny bow, without shame, circa ‘93. Luckily, the delicately feminine frock is back in stores, and this time, it’s a heck of a lot more grownup.
With styles ranging from so-pretty, bohemian maxis to party-ready fit-and-flares, we can’t think of an occasion where a lace dress wouldn’t do the trick. Toughen one up with a pair of leather booties and a moto-inspired jacket, or play up the frock’s unabashed ladylike charm with a pair of ankle-strap ballet flats and a statement necklace. Either way, rejoice! You just found your new all-weather wardrobe staple.
