ladylike leather + lace

DSC_0084Leather 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.

DSC_0069What 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.

DSC_0097As for the rest of the outfit, I opted for my trusty purple skinny jeans and a few fun accessories.



DSC_0115As much as I love these purple pants, I’m contemplating putting them away for a while in favor of lighter and brighter options. Maybe next time I’ll trying pairing this top with mint or coral…

  1. oh that top is lovely! i love the small doses of neutral-colored leather and lace, it works great! i’m thinking i need to browse around ann taylor/ann taylor loft more often!


  2. I LOVE this outfit, Caroline! That top is really cute – I love leather and lace together and this one is easily remixable! And I’m so bummed I never picked up that necklace at Target…it’s so perfect.
