Celebrities have embraced lace on the red carpets this year with Megan Gale & Jesinta Campbell both wearing modern lace designs to The Logies, while Vanessa Paradis was spotted wearing a lace Chanel dress to the Cannes Film Festival just this week.
A fabric once reserved for the "Mother of the Bride" only, lace has undoubtedly found its way into the modern women's wardrobe.
Perfect for so many occasions, a white lace dress will carry you from a daytime luncheon through to a cocktail party with ease. If you are newly engaged a white lace dress is perfect for both your engagement party and Hens night.
Pair white lace with nude heels and accessories for a more demure look, or black heels for a modern edge.

The Yeojin Bae 'Embroidered Tulle Arabella Dress' is another great way to embrace the lace trend without going the whole hog. It features an embroidered lace bodice, and full fabric skirt.

Alike Jesinta Campbell's Logies dress, tatting lace which is defined by the large loops with no backing has become increasingly popular.
This style of lace is synonymous with designer label, Self Portrait.

If white lace isn't your thing (or you're scared about keeping it clean), brightly colour lace is the way to go!
