Leather. Lace. Flip through some current magazine editorials and you’ll notice the two are often being styled hand in hand. The beautiful thing about leather and lace is the contrast. Leather is traditionally edgy, hard; lace feminine and soft. But the key to getting the balance right is remembering this: leather doesn’t have to be too hard and lace doesn’t have to be too soft. Keeping both subtle can be the perfect way to balance the contrast.
