For Fall 2011, Derek Lam paired up with eBay to create a line of 16 easy-to-wear dresses which he presented at Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week earlier this year. After the presentation, consumers were invited to vote for their favorite pieces, and now the five most popular styles — the black poplin evening dress and shift, the floral print dress in maxi and midi silhouettes, and the indigo denim sun dress — are being sold on eBay.com in the wallet-friendly price range of $125-$295. We’d opt for the black sheath dress — who doesn’t need another LBD? Be sure to check out the whole collection to shop your favorite style!

That said, we've always loved the fresh, innocent look of eyelet and cotton lace, partly because it's something you can only wear in warm weather. Here are our editor picks for pure white delight.

Here, we've found 20 amazing pairs you'll want to add to your closet right. this. minute.
