Autumn/Winter 2012 trends: Lace – we pick the best dresses for your bump

 Lace is a hot trend this season.

Appearing on the Autumn/Winter 2012 catwalks of Jason Wu and Erdem, to name a few, this trend has been given a dramatic darker and moodier make over from the soft pastel forms of last season, with blacks, deep blues and berry colours forming the main colour palate.

The best thing about this season’s look is that it can be worn subtlety thanks to the number of designers choosing a delicate lace applique on blouses, dresses and trousers,  or very obviously as an all over fabric for dresses and add on sleeve- a style that’s fast becoming a trademark look for Kate Middleton.

And the trend hasn’t forgotten the maternity world with a range of designs filtering down into cute dresses and tops.

Today we’re focusing on the statement black dress, which is perfect for an upcoming special event or Christmas party season. Choose from a slinky sleeved number that will show off your bump, or go for a 50s style tunic frock, which can be worn with a pair of ballet pumps for a more casual look.

Below is our pick of the top lace black dresses available online and on the highstreet.

Lace Katie dress, £40,  New Look
Black Lulu lace dress, £139, Isabella Oliver
Slinky lace dress, £40, Asos
Mid-length belted dress, £169, Tiffany Rose
Tunic dress, £40, Topshop
