Leather and Lace

Hello! I decided to play around with contrast in this look through juxtaposition of textures. I pulled a little black piece of vintage lingerie out from my wardrobe to style this look around. I love its silky texture and lace detailing. Although this piece may be intended to be worn as lingerie, it can easily be transformed into everyday attire with the right styling. I contrasted the smooth texture of the top with an edgy pair of black leather pants and vintage beaded jacket. I selected pieces in one color, black, for a reason; I wanted to focus solely on the texture without color factoring into the aesthetic. 

I did add a slight pop of color interest to the look through the accessories I styled with it. I grabbed a boho embroidered purse to further enhance the textural contrast of the look. I added another hint of leather texture to the look with a versatile pair of platform heels. Piles of boho jewelry, mint-colored cat-eye sunglasses and a pretty shade of pink lipstick perfected the look.
