Give your Lace Dress an Autumn Makeover

Lace has been a big trend this year and most of us were seen wearing it during the Summer.

If like me you invested in a lace dress such as this great example by Fearne Cotton then read on to find out to get extra wear out if it this Autumn.

It’s such a shame to leave it hanging in the wardrobe when it can be dressed up so easily for the cooler months. The addition of thick tights or leggings will combat the chill factor and still keep you looking stylishly on trend.

Go Military

With such a big focus this year on the military trend, why not try wearing an open Parka style jacket belted over the top “Gok Wan style” and team with a pair of must have military boots.

Style secret – legwarmers look great with these boots so grab yours now before they sell out!


With big knits being so popular on the catwalks why not layer over your dress and wear with your Ugg boots and tights, this look is so comfortable too that it will quickly become your favourite-ideal for casual days! I have to admit that this is a look that I personally favour and I will be investing in these wedge heel suede boots as not only do they add extra height, the wedge heel also keeps them comfortable to wear too.

Rock Chic

Stuck for ideas on how to carry this look from day to evening? Yes these are two totally contrasting styles but I think they are a great example for showing how easy to wear this dress really is!

This updated style leather jacket by Ted Baker looks great over lace and adds an extra edge. I think these seriously cool Dr Martens would look amazing with a pair of black opaque’s or velvet leggings and really rock the biker babe look.

Stuck for an evening look? Why not try these pretty Love Label bagged top heels over tights? Nudes are still popular and this look is spot on for a romantic evening. This is great if you still want to keep the focus on the dress and adds feminine appeal.

If you never got chance to invest in a lace dress this year why not treat yourself now? Very has a great selection of women’s dresses –the only problem is which to choose!
