This JMU Fashionista was looking stylish in her pairing of lace and leather with a classic feminine look. She adds a pop of color to her outfit of neutral spring shades with her turquoise embroidered blouse. Her lace skirt says dressy yet professional for her meeting at work while her ballet flats are great for strolling around campus or for shopping downtown. Her outfit is accessorized with silver leaf earrings, silver bangles and a watch to add some shine and stay on time with her busy schedule. She adds a little edge to her outfit with her ruffled leather jacket that makes her outfit relaxed and fun for a lunch date at Mrs. Greens. Her outfit is topped with a vintage cross body Coach bag from her mother’s closet.

This Fashionista’s mixing of lace and leather textures makes her outfit modern and fun. Long sleeve lace dresses have been a trend on campus especially for going out to dinner or parties on the weekend. Pairing lace with a leather jacket can transform your outfit from conservative and girly to edgy and chic. Chanel is a classic example of combining the traditional influences of Coco Chanel’s style of tweed, pearls, lace and structured suits with Karl Lagerfeld’s own innovative and modern twist. He incorporates the classics into his designs in a very new, sexy, youthful way with leather, fur, feathers, and bold accessories.

This Fashionista’s leather jacket is on trend with its camel hue and ruffle detail. Ruffles have been all over spring runways such as Yves Saint Laurent with ruffle detailing on dresses and skirts with bright colors and a '70s vibe. From classes and meetings to shopping and social events, a leather jacket and lace skirt says fashionable chic for any occasion.
