As said by creative director, Joe Zee, this is the season to start with a clean slate and go back to the basics — I couldn’t agree more. Florals and neon have been big trends these past seasons; so much so that everyone has forgotten about a simple black and white ensemble. As a lover of all things black and white, I couldn’t let this Fashionista remain unnoticed.
A white blouse and a black skirt may seem boring to some, and maybe even too formal, but a white chiffon blouse with a black high-low skirt is casual and chic. It is never a bad decision to invest in a cute high-low skirt. I caught this Fashionista outside school rocking her sunglasses and super cute bowler hat, which definitely adds major style points to her already chic outfit. All the way from top to bottom, she keeps it simple. With her night planned to go to a friend’s art gallery, a simple change from flats to wedges can instantly make this outfit go from day to night. For us Fashionistas in the city who don’t have dorm rooms to run back to, carrying around a big tote to school is a must. Who knows when we’ll need a quick change for a spontaneous night out with some friends? And if you’re dying for some color, just add a berry lip to finish the look.
If you’ve hidden away your blacks and whites, now is the time to go dig into your closet and fetch them out. See what black and white pieces you can mix together to make your most stylish outfit. Even in black and white, I guarantee you’ll have all eyes on you.
