Please don’t get me wrong, I think color is great! The colorful denim that’s trending these days and of course all the fall patterns and prints have all captured my eye, and my heart. But there is something to be said about a classic black and white look. For starters, this color combo will never go out of style. Oxblood may be the new black, but black will always be black and it will always be a staple. This week’s Fashionista proves that black and white never have to be boring. And why not embrace the classic duo, they match EVERYTHING after all!
This Fashionista wears a black and white chevron print dress. She belts it with a skinny black leather belt, adding necessary shape to the dress without detracting from the print. I am loving the silver ballet flats she is wearing. On any other occasion, metallic shoes take a lot of effort to coordinate with the rest of a look to ensure that the look is cohesive while not overbearing. She touches up the look with some silver jewelry, a classy silver colored watch and pearl earrings — the perfect finishing touch.
To get a look like this week’s Fashionista, start with the center piece, like this black and white chevron print dress from Free People. Add silver ballet flats, like these by J.Crew. Lastly, add jewelry and don’t forget the pearls. With just a few pieces you have a classy look and successfully support black and white in the ongoing color war.
