STYLE GURU STYLE: A Timeless Classic

It’s the couple of a lifetime. No matter how many times you separate them or try to replace them, they will always come back together. Yes, I am talking about the colors black and white; two opposites that collaborate to make a classic and iconic look.

Summer is not all about bright colors. You can still stick with the basics and create an effortless outfit. This simple black and white striped T-shirt dress was my way of incorporating my favorite colors, but mixing my bohemian vibe within it. When I first saw the BCBGMAXAZRIA resort 2016 collection I honestly got the chills. Black and white for the summer—it’s like a dream come true for me. My outfit is a reflection of Lubov Azira’s collection, by combining classic stunning pieces with a wild bohemian twist.

Black and white are two timeless colors that I believe anyone can pull off. This outfit reflects my personality and style, by integrating casual and edgy elements in my look. You can find a simple black and white dress at any of your favorite stores, then you can re-create them anyway you like by adding different styles and patterns to make it your own.

The main focus of my outfit is my black and white striped T-shirt dress from H&M with rolled up sleeves. This is one of those simple dresses that can be dressed down or up, and can be worn anywhere. I paired it with my faux leather strappy booties to give the outfit more of an edge, and I wore my floppy hat from Forever 21 to bring some bohemian vibes to the look.

If you are ever stuck with choosing an outfit, you can never go wrong with a simple black and white dress. You can even be a little more daring and add a bold lip like I did, or find a chic purse that ties the outfit together. This is definitely a go-to summer outfit that I would wear all the time.
