Lace Dresses

Lace dresses are one of the biggest trends for Fall/Winter 08. (Yes, we are talking autumn trends before Labor Day. Break out some cider if it helps put you in the mood.) These aren't ankle length, black Morticia Addams numbers. Nor should they be ivory and froofy like my mother on her way to church. These dresses are young and modern in one of two ways, color or silhouette. Think neons instead of pastels and minis rather than any demure length your grandmother would approve of. You can also find a vintage lace dress (and there are plenty) and jazz it up with bright belts, replace the lining with a slinkier slip, or a snip snip at the hem.
