Fast-becoming as must-have as the classic LBD the LLBD (that's Little Lace Black Dress) is having a big moment. Perhaps it's the sexy yet sophisticated vibe the sheer style gives off or perhaps it's the homage to vintage fashion as well as contemporary cool that makes women of all shapes and sizes reach for the lace dress. Or maybe it's the versatility of the lace dress; wear it day or night, season to season, whatever the weather, that makes it so popular. Whatever the reason for the lace dress reaching bestseller status the important thing is that you need one in your wardrobe, now. And Team LBD have the lace dress collection to help you with that...
