It’s no secret that I am crazy about juxtaposition in fashion: oversized sweaters with short-shorts or skin-tight skinnies, leopard print with stripes, black leather with blush chiffon – the list goes on and on. My most beloved example though, has always been lace with denim. I’m a sucker for flirtatious feminine pieces paired with a touch of masculine edge, and lace paired with denim proves to be a dynamic duo for achieving that look. So, needless to say, when Piperlime selected this look for me to share as part of their Moments of Chic campaign, I was over the moon!
For multiple reasons, Piperlime has always been on my short list of online retailers I frequent: they’re on the cutting edge of style, having all of my favorite designers in one place, and they cater to fashionistas in a wide range of budgets. (I have to admit though, choirs of angels go off -in my head, anyway- whenever they have a sale.) I just love their tips on how to rock the season’s hottest trends, and their aesthetic is always so effortless and put together.
For me, “chic” comes in a number of forms and can be defined in a multitude of ways. Today’s look takes a “less is more” approach on chic, by keeping the shoes and accessories simple to highlight the already fabulous lace top and denim jeans.
When you start with a good base, you really don’t have to add too much to have your moment of chic.
