Blue Velvet: the lace biker

the lace biker










A different take on the wardrobe staples.

Being a self-proclaimed jacket addict, insisting that jackets are a manna from heaven to complete a look, I was starstruck when I received this lace jacket from Romwe. A different version of one of the most basic pieces in every devoted fashionista's closet, the biker jacket has been a classic piece for decades. Time and time again, different variations make their appearance (see: quilted, textured, and even bright coloured versions), and this is no exception. 

But even so, lace is a completely different approach. One can't wear a lace biker jacket the same way they'd wear a leather one (which is basically over everything and anything). There is a very thin line between elegant and exorbitance, which lace has the tendency to ignore. Therefore, keeping everything else simple and toned down is key.
