Lace dresses are still big fashion news, and I particularly like this one as the nude coloured lining “lifts” the dress, but the longer skirt makes it very ladylike. I could imagine Kate Middleton being at home in this dress, and it will be interesting to see if she adds it to her collection over the coming season. The dress is easy to accessorise, and the model has chosen black courts (Sam Edelman Danielle), the Anya Hindmarch Valorie Glitter Clutch and a Mawi necklace.
