Lace + Leather

Dec 1, 2016

Alexis Aminila lace blouse
When I first saw this lace blouse with intricate bell sleeves, I seriously thought of the pirate shirt from Seinfeld. Ok, so maybe it's not as horrendous as the one Jerry wore, but it's funny how visual references can trigger a memory like that, and then you can't get it out of your head. And before you know it, it's inspiring you to create an outfit based around poofy lace blouses. Thankfully, this one that I purchased recently during an Intermix sale is not as ridiculous looking. In fact, it's gorgeous, feminine, and totally on trend with its bell sleeves. I immediately knew I wanted to contrast it with black leather pants, but really you can wear it with any type of denim bottom or trouser pant. That's what usually gets my attention when adding items to my closet - pieces that are classic, not overly trendy, and pair well with things I already own. Since the blouse has a lot going on already with its lace intricacies and bell sleeves, I kept everything else consistently black for a modern and sleek color combination. Draping a classic camel coat over everything completes a perfect evening out.
