Lace is a timeless fabric that has been used by fashion designers like Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood time and time again in their own collections and more recently this London Fashion Week Dolce & Gabbana also showed off their black lace pieces on model-of-the-moment Poppy Delevigne at their Spring/Summer 2012 show during Milan Fashion Week. Lace dresses are a firm favourite for Autumn/Winter 2011 and in particular black lace dresses, which we at Little Black Dress are very happy about! Black lace dresses are chic and sophisticated and have been spotted on celebrities like Scarlett Johansson and Liv Tyler recently. Sarah-Jane Crawford also rocked a black lacy prom-style number last week at the Inside Soap Awards and actress, Meryl Fernandes followed suit with an almost-floor-sweeping lace dress and black chunky boots at the same event. Go for flourishes of lace on hemlines, necklines or add some rock 'n' roll to your look with fine lace sleeves or eye-catching panelling. Update your little black lace dress with statement heels and an over-sized clutch with contrasting lace print. Or if you don't want to go all lace, take a look at the leather and lace combination – a trend that has been spotted on the red carpet. Shop Team LBD's favourite lacy LBDs here .
