I love the combination of leather and lace but knowing how to wear it outdoors without looking inappropriate is important. In addition, understanding how to wear leather and lace in warmer weather, without looking like a dominatrix or rock band member and being daytime appropriate are also points to take seriously. There are also ways to wear them without being overtly sexy or looking like you’re showcasing lingerie.
This look works great for an evening date, weekend party or styled with a blazer, even a work lunch date. The coverage of the lace top makes the look more demure, while the faux leather trouser’s fit adds some edginess. This outfit is an easy one to put together because the details, despite the lack of colour, are striking.
LIMITLESS LEATHER & LACE LOOKS
The joy of how to where leather and lace is that there are no limitations. If you’d like a more office style combination, try wearing a leather midi skirt with a lace button-up shirt. This could be similar to the outfit styled in how to wear nude leather and lace. Although just like this outfit shown here, it is best to go with a monochrome look, to keep the look more formal and professional. For more casual daytime look, you’ll like leather & lace the casual way. If you’d prefer more edge to your daytime look, you can take inspiration from how to wear the leather dress with lace. For a more night time look, try wearing pieces that have leather and lace panelling together or even styled with lace tights.
