designer lace dressesLace is pretty, delicate and sexy at the same time. Who doesn’t love it? But it can be hard to pull off. Depending on the style and design, a lace dress can sometimes miss the mark of appropriately sexy and venture into lingerie territory.

So I’ve made it my duty in this post to find 10 sexy and pretty designer lace dresses that you can wear to special occasions, even with relatives around. Come take a look at my choices!

Super cute, don’t you think? The scalloped lace tiers add something special to the piece. The black section around the waist helps to break up the dress, creating curves.

An easy-going style with a simple silhouette, this dress features a decorative lace overlay that adds incredible visual interest. The back is solid black so that the pattern isn’t overwhelming.

This is the perfect combination of cute and sexy. The A-line skirt gives the dress that flirty and fun appeal, while the waistband cinches in the waist for extra definition.

Another A-line dress that wins my vote. This has a similar silhouette as the one previous, but the exposed tulle at the hem kicks it up another fashion notch.

In contrast to the previous selections, this dress is more demure. It has a high scoop neck, but don’t think this is too modest. The hemline hits well above the knee, and the dress is form-fitting for some sophisticated sexiness.

Lace dresses can be casual too (sort of). This is the perfect shift dress to wear for those in-between occasions – when you want to look extra good but the event doesn’t call for a long gown. Plus the pop of red is eye-catching.

Price: $292.99

First maxi dress of the selection. I love how the top is lined with a minidress and the bottom features sheer lace. So sexy. But I think it needs an accessory. Maybe a red belt? The back has a sexy but not-overexposed cutout.

Talk about pretty and feminine. The entire dress is made with a delicate floral lace with scalloped edges on both the hemline and neckline. But I think it’s the stunning blue color that won me over.

When I think of lace dresses, I picture this shape and style. It’s classic – both sexy and sophisticated at the same time. Plus, this design is available in many other colors. But if you like red, take a look at this post I did on 7 killer little red dresses a few weeks back.

OK, so this one is more revealing with the plunging deep V and the high slit. There’s still something very graceful about it, and it’s sexy without going too over the top. Don’t you think?

Are you a fan of lace? Which one of these lace dresses suits your style the most?
