How to Blend Different Styles:

Usually when you think of wearing combat boots and leather jackets an edgier style comes to mind, but it’s easy to tone down that sharp edge with a more delicate dress. The Corina Cover-Up Maxi Dress is the perfect way to do so. With a sexy twist on a delicate lace look, the sheer crochet of this dress gives you the perfect glimpse of what’s underneath it.

Wear it Two Ways:

If you want to go the more conservative route, you can pair this dress with a slip underneath for more coverage. If you decide to rock this look, make sure to choose your slip wisely. Something like the Hayley Camisole works well because it’s simple and form-fitted. You don’t want a slip that is baggy because you will lose your shape or one that is distracting because it will take away from the dress’ design.

If you want to show a little more skin, go with something like the Ruby High-Rise Brief and the Drew Deep V-Neck Bra for a sexier look. Showing off your undergarments with sheer clothing is all the rage this season, however, if you choose to sport this look you’ll need to choose your lingerie tastefully. Choosing high-waisted panties is a good idea when going sheer to leave a little something up to the imagination. Similarly, you’ll want to pair the look with a full-coverage bra or bralette to make sure your look is appropriate for daily wear.

Complete the Look with Accessories:

To complete your look, you can pair this combo with an edgy jacket like the Janice Leather Jacket sold exclusively in Beverly Hills. Pairing the jacket with the lacey dress gives this outfit the dual look you’re going for. It’s also a great way to dress your outfit up or down. You can wear this dress throughout the day for brunch or shopping then throw on your jacket later for a night on the town.

A boot like the Emery Ankle Boot is a great way to keep the look edgy throughout the day even without a jacket. With a lightweight feel up top then heavier look towards the bottom, this combination of elegance and edge is the way to rock your naughty and nice look of the season.
