Leather and Lace
A little while back I blogged about how to wear thigh high boots and I wanted to do a follow-up post with some new pics on how to style thigh high boots with a black lace dress. This is my only pair of thigh high boots and in addition to this dress, I’ve also worn them over a pair of faded denim jeans. Black and light blue are not colors that people think about putting together, but they are such an amazing combo!
I love absolutely everything about the outfit that I am wearing today. There are multiple textures playing off one another and I am obsessed with the combination of lace and leather. This lace cocktail dress is actually pretty simple, however, when it is paired with a soft leather jacket it takes on a totally different look. Kind of tough but dainty at the same time? The jacket is fitted at the waist to help create a silhouette and ends at the hip to give the illusion of length. The leather bag has some great details with a couple tassels and silver studs that highlight the lining under the lace.
The best part about this outfit is that it was put together with existing pieces in my closet that I’ve had for several years. I didn’t need to shop for anything new because these are all great foundation pieces that can be worn so many different ways.
