15 flattering black lace dresses to take you from drinks to dinner–from Stella McCartney to Karen Millen

The black lace dress has to be one of your prized possessions particularly at this time of year.  In the perfect colour for evening, lace gives a modern but romantic edge to any occasion.

This season’s collection goes from Diane von Furstenberg’s Zarita dress, which comes around in different colours and with different linings (this time nude) each year, Karen Millen’s black lace dress lined in hot pink and on to Oasis’s sexy piped lace body con dress – don’t eat anything the day before you want to wear that one…..

If you put it off and wait until nearer to Christmas and party time to order you’ll miss out on the best because savvy dress shoppers are investing right now.  Whether you want a dress with a hint of lace or all over lace you mustn’t wait.  There’s nothing more frustrating than falling in love with the perfect LBD and finding it’s no longer available in your size, plus the fact that you may need to try on more than one to get the perfect fit.

Lace provides enough of a statement on it’s own, so be careful what you wear it with.  Simple jewellery, a clutch and heels are all you need.
