Lace is everywhere right now, and done right, it can be quite stunning...

 

Style maven Gwyneth Paltrow recently made an appearance in this dramatic lace dress...

 

 

Kristen Cavallari kept things simple yet sexy with this LLD (that's Little Lace Dress, in case you were wondering).

 

 

I love the lace look, but it takes some work to find lace clothing and accessories that don't look tacky and cheap. Because really, what's worse than cheap lace on a woman? Okay, maybe this, but what else? NOTHING, that's what.

The good news? I scoured our favorite online fashion sites for lace looks that are trendy now, but will stay fashionable for years to come. Here's what I came up with..

 

 

I'm absolutely in love with this vintage floral lace dress, $198 at Ann Taylor and featured now in their latest ads, so get it now if you want it- It'll sell out quickly.

 

 


This lace swing jacket would have an Audrey Hepburn-style chicness over a little black dress. It's on sale for $84 from Spiegel and frankly, I covet it.

 

 

This vintage-y top is so timeless and innocent- and you can wear it just about anywhere. It's $98 from Marciano.

 

 


These pumps are understated and elegant- $76.39 from Endless.com.

 

 

Get this gorgeous lace top from Anthropologie before it's gone- It's on sale for just $39.95 and I MUST HAVE IT.

 

 

You can't go wrong with a pretty lace clutch- This version is by Monaco and on sale for $48.55.

 

 


This Battenburg lace dress is unusual yet lovely. Everyone will want to know where you got it- and it's on sale for $47.35 from ASOS.

 

 

This casual lace-embellished jersey dress is perfect for moms who want to stay stylish while they're on the go. It's $69 at Victoria's Secret and it's now on my wish list.

 

 

I love this lace-backed cardigan, $48 from Urban Outfitters.

 

 

It doesn't get any prettier than this lace pencil skirt, $148 from Ann Taylor.

 

 


Totally beyond our budget, but I couldn't resist showing you this gorgeous lace cuff that was dipped in 18K gold. It's a mere $1,890.

 

And here are a few more of my top picks- Click on the photo for shopping information.

 

Do you have any favorite lace pieces? I have a black lace tank with nude lining that I end up wearing every year. It was a fantastic investment.
