Ask LBS: White Lace Dresses

A recent wardrobe query came through my inbox that I thought would be helpful for those of you attending events this summer like summer cocktails, weddings and the like. The white trend is big this season, and lace is always a huge hit.

Hello LoveBrownSugar! 
I just recently started following your blog and I love it!  I was wondering if you could by chance help me find something like Paula Patton's Lace outfit from the May (I think) cover of Ebony, the issue that features the Jumping the Broom cast.  I'm getting married next year and I would like wear something like that to my reception.  
 Well Casha, here are a few options at different prices for you to try:

STEAL: TFNC Sheer Embroidered Sleeve Mini Swing Dress, ASOS, $77.58

 Though this look isn't actually lace, it gives off the same chic romantic vibe as the lace numbers, at a fraction of the cost. You can always count on ASOS for trendy steals.

SAFE: Lark Rise Lace Dress, French Connection, $288.00

Probably the closest to Paula Patton's look on the cover of Ebony, this lace piece from French Connection hits the sweet spot between being a dead-on ringer and still falling into the affordable range for your big day.

SPLURGE: Shayna Dress, Lily Pullitzer, $368.00

Go all the way in and splurge with this Lily Pullitzer look that's sure to steal the spotlight on your special day. The vintage appeal and fitted shape cuurve-hugging shape are signature Lily P.

Pin It!
