When I think of lace, what first comes to mind are frilly and girly dresses that are extra feminine. Lace can be incorporated in everything from little details on a wedding dress to a prom dress, so it’s always fun to see an edgy take on it.

It can be difficult to create the perfect balance of hard details with soft details in an outfit but with the right accessories a cool girl look is easy to achieve. Don’t get me wrong—I love a super girly look sometimes, but why not add a little spice to a delicate lace dress sometimes. By missing textures, it creates an interesting appeal to an outfit and makes it unique.

A little contrast in an outfit is easily achieved with a leather jacket for some yin and yang with girly pieces. Leather jackets are notorious for being one of the most edgy things you can wear because they take any look from bland to cool. I mean we’ve all seen the movie Grease right? Incorporating leather and lace together is the perfect balance of soft and hard, which creates a flawless combo.

This Fashionista’s take on leather and lace is picture perfect. She chose to include a leather jacket with her girly red lace dress. This dress pairs perfectly with the jacket because it is not so frilly that it looks out of place with her accessories. She also paired the ensemble with some perfect black suede ankle booties, adding some height and a little edgy touch.

This Fashionista wears her hair in a middle part with soft, effortless looking waves achieved by wrapping her hair in different directions of the curling iron without using the clamp. Her strong, angled brows balance her soft hairstyle perfectly. This look is the perfect balance of hard and soft, and I hope it inspires you Fashionistas to add lace to your life!
