There is nothing classier than replacing a pop of color in an all-black outfit than with a pop of white. In the dead of winter, black is typically any Fashionista’s go-to color, but adding some white pieces creates the perfect contrast to the cold winter days ahead. And, whoever said don’t wear white after Labor Day clearly doesn’t know how to properly incorporate the color into her outfit. The lace texture of this Fashionista’s blouse has a slightly less delicate feel than most that is apropos for the winter season. Collar accents are a huge trend for winter as well and this specific collar works perfectly with the minimalist color scheme. Besides keeping on-trend by wearing a collar, she also incorporates the minimalist look that was recently spotted in Alexander Wang’s fall 2012 collection. She adds her own mix of girly with her dainty jewelry and the lace component of the blouse and she nails the rest with exclusively black and white clothing.
This Fashionista wears black skinny jeans tucked into tall black riding boots. Boots are a winter essential; Steve Madden carries an infinite collection of them, ranging from classic and sleek to rough and rugged; it’s up to you to decide which pair will accent your wardrobe better. Jeans are also necessary for winter and the black jean is definitely the new blue jean. So if you don’t already own a pair, go out and get shopping! If you aren’t looking to spend too much money, I can personally recommend this pair from Target. They are my favorite and the cheapest pair of black jeans that I have ever owned.
A babydoll top is the perfect option to counter the straight leg look of the boot and jean combo. This Fashionista wears a very polished one with a black collar. This look screams feminine, but if your style is not about overwhelming femininity then search for one that fits your personality. Most importantly, look for a black and white contrast in the top; ASOS carries a large variety of trendy and high fashion clothing for a fraction of the cost.
Whether you turn the outfit into a minimalist’s dream or flare it up with some girly accessories, you will be the definition of high fashion in this solely black-and-white getup. It’s cocktail attire for daytime and there is nothing more fun than dressing up. Why not dress up for daytime?
