STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Black, White And Sleek All Over

Style Advice of the Week

One of the immediate go-to options for warm weather creatures is to throw on any old T-shirt and shorts. While this is acceptable for the beach and backyard, New York City girls need a little more glamour in their spring wardrobes. The best way to do this, as demonstrated by this Fashionista, is to stick to black and white to achieve the ultimate chic look.

This Fashionista amped up her look by wearing sophisticated fabrics. The white trousers are a great piece for spring. They can be worn with bright colors or be paired with a more subdued option. Here this Fashionista opts for the latter and excels. The beautiful, printed fabric of the sleeveless blouse provides a great balance of bringing in dark to show contrast and the lighter colors to match the bright white pants. The fact that the top is sheer keeps the look light and perfect for spring, whereas a heavier knit could be great for cooler weather.

However, the ultimate cool factor comes from the leather jacket. Even from a distance, you can imagine the buttery, smooth texture of the jacket. It is perfect for those chilly spring mornings and evenings when the sun dips beyond the horizon. It is a fantastic wardrobe staple for any time of year, but when it gets warmer, take a cue from our stylish Fashionista and drape the jacket over your shoulders.

As we know, no outfit is complete without the proper accessories. The black heels match the leather jacket and the T-strap chain creates a delicate feel perfectly complements the top. Not to mention the pure white Céline bag that matches the pants and gives more clean lines to this already polished look.

As this Fashionista demonstrates, the rules for spring dressing are numerous, but by sticking to easy pieces, layering and clean silhouettes you can create endless looks. Black and white will forever be the standard for classy and sophisticated dressing. The combinations are endless, so start mixing and matching right now!
