Much like great cuisine, a great ensemble is about the spice (details) and the juxtaposition of opposites, like salty and sweet for instance. That’s why we are huge fans of lace with a tough edge thrown in.

This gorgeous black Givenchy silk satin and lace bomber jacket is a prime example. The beautiful guipure lace bomber with satin trim at the collar, pocket, and cuffs is so deliciously dandy and sweet and then Givenchy adds an almost industrial zipper with oversized pull to toughen it up.

We take this melding of yin and yang and up the ante by adding a Barneys Private Label black lace skort. Talk about juxtaposition, a black lace SKORT? Yes, this is just a great mashup of sexy with practicality built right in.  The easy skort, in a blend of cotton, nylon and  rayon, fastens with an invisible side zip and showcases a beautiful scalloped hem.

The Valentino Rockstud pumps in nude add more edgy flavor and beautifully accessorize the outfit without detracting from the black ensemble. We completed the look with a fun vintage “CHANEL perfume bottle” bag with a boxy shape and a chain, pearl, and ribbon handle.

Like an explosion of opposing flavors, the yin and yang we have styled here are sure to elicit some fireworks! These great pieces will spice up your wardrobe for now into fall and for years to come. Please contact us for shopping details on this look!
