Get The Look: White Lace Dress
Christine Bleakley attended the National Movie Awards in London last night wearing a hot Spring 2011 Dolce & Gabbana dress. She’s really starting to grow on us, Kickettes. We could complain about her boring Louboutin heels and about how there are a thousand better footwear choices out there, but we don’t want to ruin our moment.
Frank Lampard’s lady’s near-flawless execution of this look makes us think of one of our favorite Spring/Summer trends: white lace. Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring collection was almost exclusively filled with white, lacy concoctions and Spring collections from Erdem, Valentino and Christopher Kane solidified lace at the top of the trend table.
The little white dress (LWD) is definitely the new little black dress (LBD) and we can’t think of a fresher look for a hot summer night spent on a patio sippin’ sangria (just don’t spill!). Click through for our steals and splurges.
This adorable crepe dress combines two of our favorite summer trends – white lace (duh) and a midi length. Some wooden platform sandals (well done, model) or wedges will make your feet just as happy as the rest of your bod will be in this.
UK online retailer Fashion Union has this perfect summer LWD for just £35.
This dress can easily be paired with flat sandals for day and a sky-high pair for night. We love the idea of pairing a colorful sandal with this dress. If you’re going to go neutral with your shoe choice then add color with some bangles.
Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti (the fab diffusion line from Ms. Ferretti) has created this gorgeous cotton maxi dress that is the equivalent of marshmallow clouds and fluffy bunnies. Meaning? It’s amazing. Nothing short of daisies in your hair would be appropriate for this hippie-chic delight.
You will be freeing up space on your other credit card for this beauty from Erdem. As we said above, Erdem’s Spring collection is full of lacy, feminine pieces that would be well worth the splurge.
What are your feelings on white lace dresses or just lace in general? We will certainly be embracing this trend and praying to St. Iker that our drinks stay in our hands and that our self-tanners are completely dry before dressing.
