Lace & (faux) Leather

I sound like a broken record at this point-but there’s something about pairing a feminine piece with an edgier piece I just love. It’s the allure of juxtaposition if I want to get technical.

Dark Romance has been a trend we’ve been seeing since last fall. I love the dark romance look which is usually a black sheer lace dress, with elegant detailing. I wanted go along with the trend but put a lighter twist to it. By pairing the light and dainty top with the structured faux-leather skirt it tones down the “sweet & girly” feel of the top and balances the skirt from being too tough. Adding hints of cool details, like the earrings and the buckle detail on these heels, adds a subtle pop of modern and chic detailing.
