How to Pair Leather and Lace Fashion
It can be tricky sometimes pairing leather and lace fashion trends. I found that leather (faux included) is one of my favourite fashion pieces. I swear it goes with everything. That Mackage jacket I have referred to previously (seen here) has probably gotten 100+ wears out of it. I am still browsing for another Mackage – tried on this one, LOVE it – but can’t seem to swallow the cost just yet. Should I just go for it?? Anyway, if you don’t own a leather jacket then you should probably go get one. I love an edgier look for everyday city wear, but even if that isn’t you, everyone should own a black leather jacket.
Lace, another fabric I love. Whether it’s a top, bra, dress, whatever, it’s the perfect mix of classy, chic and sexy. While I’m all about an oversized menswear look, lace is just so feminine and pretty that it’s hard not to feel great in.
While they’re perfect on their own, I love the contrast of the toughness of leather worn with the softness of lace; it’s my favourite combo when it comes to leather and lace fashion! Okay, so this dress only has a lace trim, but it’s pink so it still counts.
I have a slight obsession with Zara, and find myself wandering through the store once or twice a week. This should probably stop because I end up leaving with something most of the time. BUT they always have new pieces and so affordable… so this entire look (OTK boots excluded) is from Zara!
This pink dress is actually a slip dress, and I threw a cozy black sweater over top since it’s Canada and it’s cold. I got this during Zara’s crazy sale for $20 (other pink dresses here)! The sweater is also from Zara (here), and they have it in a few other colours. It’s so soft and the perfect length to wear over top of dresses or anything high-waisted.
The jacket; LOVE this jacket! It is so cool looking. This one is again, Zara and the price was so good! It’s faux leather, and has such a nice plush lining in it so it’s quite warm as well. I’ve gotten so much wear out of this one. It fits somewhat oversized so it adds a bit of edge to the look. Other ideas when pairing leather and lace fashion, is this jacket with black leggings and Nike’s or with ripped denim and an oversized knit sweater.
