Rich, red lace

Margot Lace Dress by Erdem

There is something about the color red that completely changes the attitude of lace.

Lace Dress by Michael Kors

Last year, Erdem came out with this Margot dress (top) – a true show-stopper that, understandably, inspired much envy (at $3,360) and a lot of more affordable offshoots. This fall, Michael Kors was one of many designers who kept red lace alive with his gorgeously tailored crimson lace dress (above).

Lace will always be soft and romantic, but red dye injects it with richness and maturity that I love for autumn.

'Lizzie' Lace Dress by French Connection

I would love to layer these intricate lace dresses with other textural pieces, like thick knits, tweeds, and furs. I think a red lace dress can look very modern paired with tone-on-tone neutrals and reds, like ivory, chestnut, burgundy and ox blood. And, I especially love them with leathers and suedes in natural browns (like above).

    I love the poofed out skirt of the first dress! Mixed with the red lace, it’s so elegant!
