Lace Front & Back



I was minding my business, looking around in this store in Harlem called High Energy and I spotted this lace motorcyle jacket and I knew that I had to have it. I’ve always loved lace and to see it in the form of something as “tough” as a motorcyle jacket, made it a must have!

I kept it in my closet for a few months because as soon as I got it home, it struck me–I wasn’t sure how to wear it. I wanted to keep it simple, so the first time I rocked it with a white top underneath and a black skirt. I hated it. So this time, I decided to do all black.


I love tights and I finally found the ones on my wishlist! I thought adding a little lace look to the back of my legs would help coordinate with the jacket without going overboard. These are from Avenue for 2 for $12.

Since I felt like such a bad@$$, I decided to put a pop of color on my lips with some red lipstick. Typically, the only makeup I am a fan of is eyeshadow, but in trying lipstick, I found it a fun and easy way to sass up any look. The necklace was a gift from H&M. I love the way it looks almost like plexiglass.


I paired the jacket with a black mini from Forever 21+ for $9.80, a black top from Pay/Half for $7, fishnets with lace details on the back and suede booties from Avenue for under $40.

Lace is such a fun and feminine way to dress up anything. I am absolutely in love with lace. I’m wishing I would have worn this with a tank so that can you see the pattern of the lace on my arms. Oh well, you live and you learn!


There’s so many ways to wear it. How do you wear your lace?
