Mixing Styles – Lace and Leather

Mixing Styles - Lace and Leather: Leather Jacket Lace Top Outfit - Stylishlyme

A Woman’s Black Motorcycle Jacket

What is the one wardrobe item that models, punk rockers, actresses, rebels, musicians and style insiders all own? A motorcycle jacket.

This is the jacket of choice for emitting that “cool” factor. Keep one in your closet for those days when you want to feel absolutely stylish and daring. Needless to say a motorcycle jacket immediately changes the look and feel of an outfit. It can make feminine look punk and a classic outfit look sexy. Just throw it over your shoulders or wear it zipped up and belted for a “don’t mess with me” look.

The thing I love most about motorcycle jackets are their versatility. They look good with nearly everything and will always match, if you have a black one which you should. Own a black leather jacket because you’ll wear it more than any other color you might buy. Remember what I said yesterday, you don’t have to worry because you’ll always look chic in black (and white).

Mix It Up With Lace and Leather

These style of jackets can be dresses up or down, worn uptown or downtown, and come off as grunge or punk. Just pick your style and mix-and-match accordingly. Anything that sounds like it shouldn’t go together often make for amazing combinations. So why not wear a motorcycle jacket with an evening dress, it will only make you look more sexy.

In this outfit, I mixed lace and leather, feminine and masculine. The white lace top really stands out against the leather jacket yet holds its own. The two items are not competing in this outfit, on the contrary lace and leather have a pleasing balance. The lace top would be too “sweet” on its own, the jacket tones it down and if I would have worn a black or white tank this would have looked too tough which generally is not my style.

Mixing styles, is about having fun discovering outfits that reflect you. It’s supposed to be personal and uniquely you. If a grunge/punk look is not your thing than try punk/mod. Find a style that speaks to you and mix it with another style that adds the perfect amount of irony.

Try mixing lace and leather in your next outfit!

How do you mix-it-up? I would love to know your style combinations.

Stay Stylish,

PS. I wore the same jacket in yesterdays outfit post, wasn’t my intention it just worked out that way.

    Love the moto jacket with the lace top.

    I actually have a moto jacket in my latest outfit post. I paired mine with a colorful houndstooth mini skirt and a cashmere sweater. Would love to hear your thoughts.
