Looking for a new look for spring that’s the perfect mix of naughty and nice? Well get ready to raid your wardrobe to create a fresh look from a mix of staples you likely already own, and mix it with a few key new accessories. This is what the leather & lace trend is all about, a combination of classic, vintage, girlie girl pieces meets tough girl, rocker leather. This look was pioneered by rock goddess Stevie Nicks in the 70’s and 80’s, but its back with a fresh vibe and brighter colors for spring. Get ready for the remix!
Classic item: The lace shell
Wear to: Casual Friday-into-happy hour
Every girl should own at least one lace shell (of which I own several), as they are a great layering piece, season-less, and perfect for either the office or going out. The best way of dressing this down for a more casual look is to pair with dark wash denim, and add a couple of leather bracelets
of varying widths, and a leather necklace like the Lasso Necklace by Henri Lou
. Top with a bold single button blazer with the sleeves rolled up, and wedge sandals for spring. Here Selena Gomez rocks
a similar look.
Classic item: The leather jacket
Wear to: Date night
The classic leather moto jacket is the must-have item that adds instant luxury to any wardrobe, and is a great investment piece. Pair with a great all-over lace dress, or with a flirty white dress with lace detail. To accessorize add a great cross body bag in a bold color like these available from Chocolate
, and finish with black booties and show stopping earrings like the Greenwich earrings from Lionette
