My Style: Black Lace and Military Boots

Today's Look:  is all about the contrast between black & white, lace & military boots, and goth & girly.  Somedays I just feel like wearing black, and today was one of those days.  I wore a sheer, lace top with a black cami, along with charcoal skinny jeans tucked into military boots.  Since the outfit was so dark, I chose to wear my bright white purse and bracelet to create contrast.

Outfit Details:  Shirt by Love Squared at Nordstrom, Jeans by Express, Boots by Steve Madden, Purse by Charming Charlies, White Bracelet by Charlotte Russe, Black Bracelet by APT. 9 at Kohl's, Necklace by BP at Nordstrom.

Fashion Tip:  When creating an outfit that includes metal on jewelry (necklaces, earrings, rings, etc.) and a purse, make sure to keep the type of metal (gold, silver, bronze, copper, etc.) consistant throughout the pieces to create unity; unless more than one piece contains two different metals (gold & silver normally).  In this case, you can have pieces that are gold or silver throughout without looking gauche.
