The CCUOCO Spring/Summer 2014 collection includes a few different crop tops – From a halter to a fun lace-up version like the one pictured above. And crop tops are everywhere this time of year, but the question is, how do you make them street style appropriate?

Even if you have a killer bod and are comfortable showing it off, most daytime situations don’t call for that much exposed skin. By adding a simple blouse or tee under the crop top you can still put together a fun, eye-catching look, but the overall style is more day-to-day appropriate.

San Francisco Fashion: CCUOCO Lace-Up Vest

For the third installation of the MCLV x CCUOCO Spring Lookbook I’d like to share a great San Francisco look featuring this fun, flattering lace-up leather vest.

What immediately struck me about this fab lace-up vest is its versatility. I can easily picture it with jeans and a vintage tee for a casual but edgy daytime look or zipped up & paired with slim fitting black pants for a night out sans top {gasp!}.

For me, it was a no brainer to pair this fun, eye-catching piece with a simple dress for a put-together daytime style. The dress is flattering, but it takes a backseat to the drama of the vest, which is perfect.

Add killer heels and some chunky jewelry and you’re good to go!

How would YOU style this fun lace-up vest?

San Francisco Fashion: CCUOCO Leather Dress Day-To-Night

The first post that I shared from the CCUOCO x MCLV Spring Lookbook was this killer leather dress that I styled with a sweet little bow blouse and vintage peep-toe booties. The perfect look for a day filled with meetings or after-work drinks.

Today we’re styling that same sleek leather dress for an evening outing. Because, let’s be honest, a fabulous new piece that seamlessly goes from day-to-night is always a winner!

Taking a look from day-to-night is ALL about accessories – You’d be amazed just how dramatic of a difference can be made with the addition of killer heels, statement jewelry, and bold colors.

In this instance we decided to stick with the classic black & white color scheme but added some visually interesting points with a leopard print clutch, gold & mesh booties & a metallic collar.

What’s YOUR favorite way to take a piece from day-to-night?

San Francisco Fashion: CCUOCO Spring Lookbook

Local designer Candice Cuoco of CCUOCO is one of my favorite San Francisco fashion discoveries.

I wore a custom-made bustier for New Year’s Eve this year {New Year’s Eve Leather} and recently sat front & center at her first solo runway show here in SF {CCUOCO DIVERGE}.

When she asked me to style a lookbook for Spring showing the versatility and wearability of her couture leather pieces, I immediately started daydreaming and drifted off to mixing & matching heaven.

As excited as I was to put together some daytime and nighttime looks using pieces from her collection, the end result was even better than I had hoped.

I mean… How often do your expectations get completely blown out of the water?

This leather dress is a cropped version of an amazing floor-length gown from Candice’s Fall 2013 collection and I immediately fell in love with this fresh, modern take on a classic style.

So how do you wear a leather dress for daytime? With a bow blouse and my favorite vintage peep-toe booties, of course.
