Tips as to how to wear leather and lace.
Leather and Lace – the ultimate juxtaposition of feminine and tough style. City Style and Living Magazine’s (CSL) editors show you how to marry these two opposites on The Editor’s Notebook Travel and Style. The best tips?
1. Keep the Colour Palette Simple
If pairing soft and hard style keep the colour palette simple. CSL used black and white to show off the delicate quality of the lace and the edginess of the leather.
2. Accessorize Simply
CSL opted for a simple silver necklace for this look and elongated legs with a cute pair of see-through pumps. Lace has enough detail, no need to add more embellishment.
3. Use leather in anchor pieces
Leather jackets, shorts, pants or other anchor pieces work well. Don’t overdo the leather, opt for only 1 or 2 pieces in the entire outfit.
