Race for Lace

Anna Dello Russo’s (editor at large for Vogue Japan) take on lace dress, which may not be practical for daily wear!
Here are my two favorite lace dresses (red dress – Theory; black dress – Oasis) which I have been wearing season after season. I find these two colours timeless and versatile.

These can be paired up with black tights and ankle boots or pumps. I may also add a red belt or leopard print shoes for a more colorful and wilder look. Given their timeless look, I think every girl should have at least one lace dress in her closet. What do you think?
