Classic, timeless and glamorous are just three ways to describe AW13’s lace trend. Delivered to the catwalks by some of the world’s most prestigious fashion designers, and straight to your doorstep by Team LBD, lace dresses are the hottest contender for this season. If you don’t already own a lace dress, we’re pretty sure you will after reading this. The Red Lace Dress

Being the colour of love, nothing expresses femininity and romance quite like a red lace dress. Since being spotted on the runway at Dolce & Gabbana’s AW13 show, we’ve branded this stylish piece our number one party dress. The Aftershock London Alisia Lace dress (£55) is ideal for a night on the town. The body-con fit and intricate floral detailing is bound to turn heads for all the right reasons. For a more formal occasion, the Evita Maxi dress by Gorgeous Couture (£238) is the perfect red dress. The beautiful lace bodice and flowing skirt will ensure you look elegant and graceful. Or if you’re after something more contemporary, then the Kate Fearnley Alex Lace dress (£178) will steal the show. We love the red lace fabric contrasted with an intense cerise lining, and the cross-back design places an innovative twist onto the classic shift dress.

The Skater Lace Dress Skater lace dresses are the epitome of cute and pretty. The fitted bodice and flared skirt of this dress style will draw attention to the smallest part of your body – your waist – making it one of the most flattering fits for any body shape. We think that every girl needs the Chi Chi London Liliana dress (£49.99) hanging in her wardrobe. The navy lace detailing is on-trend for AW13 and the bow fastening stands as a sweet finishing touch. For a bolder, more vibrant look, the Kate Fearnley Gracy dress (£186) will make you stand out in a crowd. The cobalt blue lace design, sheer sleeves and skater skirt together make the right combo for that must-have cocktail dress. If you want to go for a super girly look, then the Chi Chi London Melody Lace dress (£48.99) will work wonders. The Peter Pan collar, black lace overlay and cream, pleated skater skirt mirror the trendy schoolgirl chic style. The Maxi Lace Dress A lace maxi is the ultimate formal evening dress. The lovely lace fabric and floor-length style will add an air of extravagance to any night time look. The one-shoulder sleeve of the Lipstick Boutique Kerrie Lace dress (£80) is a current take on the little black dress and the thigh-high split will show off your pins without being too revealing. The embellished neckline of the Forever Unique Regina dress (£330) sets this maxi number off with a sparkle. Team LBD can’t get enough of the bright blue lace pattern and flattering flare finish. And get ready to be blown away, because the Elliot Claire Off-White Drop Waist evening dress (£395) is simply stunning. The lace bodice is adorned with pearl embellishments and the waterfall maxi skirt will make you look and feel like a true goddess. The Peplum Lace Dress Peplum and lace have paired together this season to make the most appropriate A/W party dress. A peplum design draws attention to the waist and is particularly complimentary to an hourglass figure, whilst a lace detail adds a pretty and playful touch. Team LBD recommend the Tempest Becki lace dress (£125), which is available in black and cream. This dress has it spot on with the pretty halterneck style, which provides a subtle yet sweet lace design, and pencil peplum waistline. Or if you’re looking for a lace dress that’s far from subtle, the Forever Unique Jasmin dress (£220) is better suited to you. The strapless design and black, floral lace overlay is extremely eye-catching and stands as the perfect choice for a formal dress.
