The weather here in Northern California has been extremely warm this summer. It was 105 degrees on Saturday, 108 yesterday and today we’re in the 90s. One thing is for sure, I live in dresses in this heat. In fact, I no longer care if I’m pale and without self-tanner, I can’t live in long pants any longer. I was wearing a lightweight black sundress on repeat once the weather started heating up and decided I needed a few more dresses for summer. I stumbled on this cute lace sundress and knew I had to have it. As I started shopping for more, I couldn’t believe how many fabulous lace dresses there are available for end of summer/early fall.

Lace dresses are perfect for a variety of occasions. They can be worn to backyard barbecues, summer parties, birthdays, brunch, weddings, date night and more. You can dress them up or down easily and effortlessly with jewelry, shoes and accessories. 

If you’re shopping for a cute lace sundress that you can wear time and time again this summer and into fall, you’re in luck. Today, I’m excited to share 20 gorgeous lace dresses in a variety of styles and price ranges. I also shared tips on how you can wear them all season long with shoes, jewelry and accessories. PS: Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post where I shared even more dresses in the Shop The Post widget.
