Often, lace designs are either conservative or overly flirty; this season, however, designers like Tracy Reese, Vera Wang and Roberto Cavalli show us that lace can strike a lovely balance. With playful colors to counter the sexiness of the material, spring's new lace has a naughty attitude that's anything but cheap or frilly. To keep your look classy and fashion-forward, be sure to opt for high-quality materials and pair with vibrant accessories in the same color family.
We love how the lace overlay on this maxi brings both drama and a moodier romance into the equation. If you are looking for a seductive date option, then this dress is a no-brainer.
