There is never a shortage of rich fabrics and ornate layers when it comes to fall and winter wardrobe selections – it is holiday season after all. And nothing professes opulence with a touch of romance and seduction, the way lace can. Combining the elegance of vintage-inspired wedding gowns and the passionate allure of boudoir apparel, lacey details embellished stunning frocks in the fall and winter runway collections.

Valentino used ivory lace to delicately trim a dainty sweater dress, creating a demure yet elegant statement. Other designers however, opted for a darker and edgier lace treatment. Oscar de la Renta, Erdem and Elie Saab took a gothic turn and presented sheer fabrics with black lace panels and sultry cut-out details.
So with all your parties lined up for Christmas and New Year, you might want to squeeze in a lacey number or two, for some stylishly sexy festivities.
