Leather and lace is an intersting combination in that it has the potential to be very, ahem, R-rated, but it can also be quite pretty with the right pieces. I’ve worn my share of lace + leather outfits (seen here and here) in hopes of achieving the latter.
What got me thinking about this spectrum of leather + lace is this top my mom bought for me a few weeks ago. It’s leather (on the sleeves) and lace (on the hem) all in one ladylike piece! The ivory color also makes it a good candidate for mixing and matching.
