The Lace Dress: Get the Look for Less

Emily BluntSeeing the lovely Emily Blunt in this bold red dress this past week just reminded me of the fact that the lace dress has really become a wardrobe staple.

Year after year, it shows up on the racks in virtualy the same format -- and it's a fantastic way to look a little bit (or a lot, depending on the cut) sexy, without showing too much skin.

The good news? There's a pretty lace dress out there for every shape, size and budget.

Click through to see some of my favorites -- including the one I'm getting myself this spring ...

TopshopOr you could opt for something more casual but still of-the-moment with this lovely sea green lace dress (Topshop, $150).


BlueflyIf you're looking for a dress that'll last longer than a season, this Wyatt lace dress (Bluefly, $115) will never go out of style- and it's a nice discount price for a designer frock.

NordstromSexy mamas will love this figure-hugging Eliza J lace dress (Nordstrom, $158).


Last CallFinally, here's the one I'm choosing -- another classic retro cut that never goes out of style. And this Laundry by Shelly Segal lace dress (Last Call, $72 on sale), originally $195, is also an amazing price!
