Romantic Lace

Wearing blouse with flared lace sleeves and lace collar, topped with a black sleeveless sweater. Black leather skirt with ruffled trim and black clogs. Black sunglasses on head.
Today I’m wearing an Alice & Olivia lace blouse that I purchased years ago on ebay. It was such a great deal that I bought it in white and black. Needless to say both blouses have been sitting in my closet with the tags still on (they were sold “new with tags.”) So I pulled them out as soon as I heard romantic lace is a trend this season. For this outfit I topped the lace blouse with a black sleeveless sweater for depth. Then I paired it with a leather skirt with a ruffled hem, and black clogs. I just love the look of the romantic lace sleeves with the leather and ruffle details of the skirt. What do you think of this look? Do you like the romantic lace trend?

The blouse has a lace collar and lace flared sleeves which I love, though like the fur cuffs in this post here, are difficult to eat with. So no ordering burgers or finger foods when wearing them. Also watch out for sleeves flowing into food at cocktail parties or when reaching across the table. This I’ve learned from wearing tops with similar flared sleeves.

  6. I like the romantic lace trend as long as it is toned down by something like your skirt. On it´s own it is just too much for me.

    1. This blouse actually looks pretty casual with jeans, and not too over the top :)

  12. Aw, I love those pieces together! They complement each other really well :) I haven't looked too far into the romantic lace trend, to be honest, I'll have to do that! I do like lace in general, though, so I don't see how romantic lace could be bad, haha!

    1. Thank you Erin. I don't really know why they added the word "romantic" to the trend. Back when I purchased this blouse it was just plain old "lace", haha.

  15. Black and white always looks so classy. I like the sleeves on the top I think this will look great with some flare jeans too for a 70s style outfit. Gemma x

Don't you just love when something becomes trendy and you already have it hanging in your closet, feels pretty good like you were ahead of everyone, right?! Haha!

  32. Lace and leather are totally trending in 2016, I love the cute illusion that the lace gives and the sexy illusion that the lather gives which is pure perfection. I should rob your closet and get new clothes with tags on, lucky you!!
