Leather and lace are always a popular fall combination. As much as I enjoy mixing leather and lace separates, I am loving the mixed media look of leather and lace this fall. There is something interesting about the dichotomy of the delicate, ultra femininity of lace and the tougher, more rugged leather being combined into one garment. Could it be that good girl/bad girl vibe? We are seeing lace sleeves on leather tops, leather sleeves on lace shirts, lace cutouts in leatherlike leggings, half leather / half lace dresses, and lace laser cut leather...just to name a few. Take a look at some inspiration and a few of my in store favorites...
