Leather & Lace
Posted on February 29 2012
Playing with texture is one of the best ways to adopt a little edge into your wardrobe. Rich and luxurious textures like leather and lace may be considered polar opposites and while the style rules may have said to separate them in your closet, the new rules say bust them out and wear them loud and proud...together!
- Get outside the leather jacket. Leather-look or real leather skinny jeans are a style trend to watch for this fall. If you want to catch the trend early, you can try wearing them with lace or a softer texture now as an evening look.
- When mixing these textures, stay with neutrals. Black, brown and taupe for leather & black or ivory for the lace. Trying other colours might make each item look cheap.
- When trying the leather and lace look, go easy with the shoes and accessories.
- Try leather accents. Wear your lacy top and add a black or chocolate leather belt.
