Textural Blocking - Lace + Leather

Jacket - Bar III, Blouse - Rachel Rachel Roy, Shorts - Rachel Rachel Roy, Heels - LC Lauren Conrad, Ring - Pop of Chic, Flower Pin - Maca Clothe, Necklace - c/o Left of Right, Tote - c/o Massi

After attending my first fashion week this past fall, I was in awe of the leather and lace pieces stomping down the runways. This delicate and edgy combo, which was once banished to winter wardrobes, is now riding the waves into spring and making a huge splash with top designers. Textural blocking is the perfect style trick for fash addicts on a budget due to the dimension it adds to your ensemble. It's also a great way to make an outfit look more expensive than it actually is. For this look, I decided to go all neutral, which has always been a favorite spring trend of mine. You can revisit my Style Guide on how to wear neutrals on LaurenConrad.com here. xo

  11. The neutral colors give the warmer weather a hushed feeling. I like that. Also, the leather is quite sheik. I like the textures too, from the delicate cottons to the clunky necklace to the purse. Mixing textures is key and you nailed it.
