Spotted & Tried :: Juxtaposition

While grazing the pages of Lucky Magazine's March issue I noticed a reoccurring trend: black bras peeking out of sheer, lace blouses. Lauren Conrad rocked this look on the cover, and the "Look of the Month" paired it with boyfriend jeans and heels. It's daring, adventurous, a head-turner, and utterly unsubtle. 

The bra-and-lace duo introduces romance to sexy and feminine to bold all at once. I love the juxtaposition that it embodies and the confidence it exudes. 

These attributes were inviting but actually wearing the look terrified me. And so I tried it. 
Fashion should be adventurous, after all.
What was the last look or trend you tried that scared you at first? Would you wear it again?

  9. I am a fan!!! I have always loved the sheer top with a bold bra...not in a skanky Vegas stripper way, of course...in a classy way like you have done here. You are completely adorable :) Yay! for being bold!!! XO Brynn (sorry, I hope my word choice did not offend!)

  14. Wow, I really loved how you made the style your own!

    When I first saw the high-low skirt trend, I was skeptical that I could pull it off and really scared. Turns out, there was nothing to be afraid of!

  21. I wear this out sometimes although my bf hates it ("Just put a tank top on underneath!" he says) :P

  22. I love this and have tried it a few times! It is certainly bold, but I make sure to keep my girls in place too, lol
    I like the total outfit too including the jacket.
    I guess my "bold" outfit could be peach blouse and mint skinnys. I loved the outcome too though! ;)

  23. I love this look when done right - and you've definitely done it right :) the boyfriend jeans really help to make it less overt!

  24. I definitely love this androgyny chic look! Not everybody can pull of a bra under a sheer lacy top--you did a really good job!

    Stay fab,
