Our favourite lace dresses
Lace featured heavily on the catwalks this season, with designers like D&G, Oscar De La Renta and Valentino focusing on lace dresses, skirts and blouses. The current trend for lace concentrates on an antique, heritage look. Look for looser patterns and wider necks that are thicker than the more modern net lace.
Here is our pick of the best lace dresses currently on the high street...
