The Project D Victorine Lace Dress is a sheer black lace dress that is lined in an oyster nude coloured fabric to the body and skirt, leaving the sleeves sheer. The dress has cap sleeves and a boat neck, with a fitted bodice and a longer length pleated skirt. The neck, sleeves and hemline are all trimmed in scallop edge lace and the dress has a concealed back zip fastening.

It is available in UK sizes 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16

Fabric and care: 00% nylon; lining 97% polyester, 3% polyurethane; dry clean only

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.
