Another lovely look inspired by the flawless Miss Audrey in Sabrina. This time: black and white floral lace dresses perfect for special occasions!

Audrey’s elegant strapless Givenchy gown is embroidered with a delicate black floral pattern. The contrast is unexpected but adds interest, and turns an otherwise plain dress into a dramatic one. For a similar look that’s feminine and has the same vintage feel, look for white dresses with black floral patterns and lace details. Stick to figure-flattering silhouettes that emphasize the waist (think, a fitted bodice and fuller skirt, like Audrey’s):
