I found a lace peplum top by Cynthia Steffe on clearance in Marshalls recently. It was only $20, a price reflecting a significant discount from its original $128 retail price. The top is completely sheer and cream in color.
When I saw the top on the sale rack, I immediately envisioned wearing it with leather pants or a leather pencil skirt. Lace and leather! Apparently, I’m warming up to the faux leather trend for the first time ever. Have you seen faux leather appearing even in Target? A faux leather detail high-low top and faux leather panel leggings caught my attention there on a recent trip.
In today’s post, I’m wearing the new lace top with black skinny pants. A complementary arm party and necklace add interest. Pops of yellow from the sandals and clutch break up the black and cream combination.
