The Case For Winter Lace

The sexiest, the flirtiest, and the most demure iterations of Spring lace have made the seasonal switch, and all you have to do is look a little closer to see just how expertly this openwork fabric has transitioned into Winter-wearable pieces. Most recently, Kerry Washington stepped out at the AMAs in a bright yellow lace Stella McCartney midi-length dress, which we could easily envision styled up with a tweedy, fur-collared coat and slingback heels.

If you're looking for inspiration that's geared toward the holiday scene, Breaking Dawn Part 2 costars Kristen Stewart and Ashley Greene both put their own spin on edgier black lace ensembles (gloves included). Or, if what you really want is a seriously beautiful confection perfect for New Year's Eve, Halle Berry's silver Dolce & Gabbana number at the Cloud Atlas premiere in LA is the clear winner. Herein find the current (and best) celeb-inspired lace looks, and you can shop our editors' key picks at the end of the slideshow.
