Mini Trend 2: Lace Dresses

Lace Dresses

Fashion bloggers and style icons all over the web have been rocking vintage-looking, delicate lace dresses, despite the bitter weather conditions. It's easy to see where the trend comes from :there were lace frocks a plenty on the spring summer catwalks - from Chanel's little house on the prairie inspired designs, to Oscar De La Renta's black widow gowns.

Now, this is a trend that I definately want to follow. Worn with sheer black tights, a sheer lace dress is the perfect trans-seasonal piece for your wardrobe. Take your lead from Abbey Lee and casually throw on haphazord layers of thin cardigans, scarves and jackets, finishing off with a pair of flat lace-up ankle boots and, if you're still feeling the cold, a Russian fur hat effortlessly finishes the look
