STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Leather And Lace

Let’s be honest, leather is always in fashion. Leather pieces are the perfect way to add some edge into your wardrobe. There is nothing fiercer than a jet black leather jacket. One form of wearable leather that is super hot right now is a leather jacket. Not only are they easy to pair with any outfit, but you can also completely switch up the tone of your look by adding a leather jacket.

Now, where does lace fit into this mix? Think about one of the most desired taste combinations for any snack enthusiast: sweet and salty. Leather and lace is that common phenomena translated into the fashion world. By combining the two trends, you are not only creating a statement outfit, but also introducing the ideal amount of sweet and sassy into your look. This trendy combo is also perfect for taking your look from day to night. You can rock your cute lace ensemble during the day and then create an edgier look by adding a leather jacket for the night.

This look is extremely easy to achieve; simply put on your favorite lace tank top, dress or sweater. Then all you have to do is find the perfect leather jacket to complete the look. This Fashionista chose a thin sweater with lace stripes to wear under her black leather jacket. Combining the sweater and jacket allows for some extra warmth during these cold winter months while still keeping her style visible. She paired her sweater and jacket with some black leggings and black over-the-knee boots to enhance the edginess of the outfit. The look was completed with a simple gold necklace to bring out the gold embellishments in the jacket.

Just as leather has remained a staple in fashion for years, I believe the leather and lace combination is here to stay. Not only because the duo can be easily converted from day to night, but also due to the endless outfit opportunities it allows. During the winter, you can pair a lace detailed sweater with a leather jacket, or in the spring you can add some sass to your go-to lace dress by topping it off with a leather jacket. For a completely different look, you can take a cute lace tank top and pair it with some leather skinnies and you have a sweet and sassy girl’s night out look. Like I said, there are endless opportunities!
