Lace patterns are among fall's most coveted prints. From intimates to jackets and outerwears, the delicate prints are cropping up everywhere. Whether you're looking for a sexy dress for your date night or a jacket to beat the winter chill, opting for the lacy print will keep you looking on-trend. Here are some top picks for your fall and winter wardrobe.
Statement lace-print tops
Alexander McQueen gorgeous blouse in fine silk (Stylebop, $340) offers an intriguing, multi-color lace pattern. The blouse features a narrow-waist silhouette, contrasting colored high collar and slightly puffed shoulders. While the professional fashionista can style it with a black pencil skirt for an elegant look, the fun-loving can spruce up an evening by styling it with a leather skirt. Too expensive for your wallet? Try this sheer split-V blouse instead. (The Limited, $29.94)
Hot lace-print denim
The hottest babe can flaunt her flair in these Joe's Jeans skinny jeans (Macy's, $179). The pair features an all over Chantilly lace print and a traditional 5-pocket styling. Wear it with a sequined tank top for a festive evening look or use a tailored, short, button-down shirt if you prefer keeping it conservative. Lace-print denim can be stepped up a notch by pairing them with leather jackets.
Chic lace-print pencil skirt
Work the lace print to your work wardrobe by adding a crisp and chic pencil skirt. This pencil skirt from The Limited features a feminine lace print in a shapely silhouette. The stretch knit keeps it comfortable and complements your contours. Break away from the monotony by styling it with a bold-colored shirt all tucked in. Prefer keeping the attention away? Use a colorblock soft blouse instead. (The Limited, $28.14)

After the sweltering hot days of summer, the chill of a crisp fall day is always welcome. However, with the temperatures dropping, a jacket becomes the order of the day. Get inspired by this Dolce and Gabbana lace-print jacket that features an all-over print, round neckline and short sleeves.
