STYLE GURU STYLE: Black n' White Beaut

If there’s any one thing most people know me for, it’s my minimalist style. Dressing in variations of black and white are my reason for living, and I wouldn’t ever want things any other way!

So because of this, I was immediately attracted to the looks presented by Alexander Wang at his spring 2016 ready-to-wear show. The contrasting black and white pieces that comprised many of his looks are what inspire me to get up and get dressed each morning. I have always been a major Alexander Wang fan, and to see all of his new and elegant eye-catching work got me really thinking.

I noticed how many of the pieces that made each outfit work could be worn without the other. Keeping that in mind, I chose items that could potentially stand alone and work in multiple ways. My shirt of choice was a beautiful, satin-y C/MEO Collective button-up, which you can find here. If you’re looking for something with less of a textured look, I would really suggest this one from ASOS or this one from VINCE. For bottoms, I went with a really awesome pair of Kendall and Kylie Jenner ripped and patched charcoal black jeans. These are so unique yet perfect for so many looks, and I thought classing it up a little bit with the oversized white button-up would make for a great Wang-inspired outfit. For something similar, I love these ones from Century 21, but if you aren’t quite into the patched concept, regular ripped black skinnies, like these from Frame Denim, will work great too!

Accessory-wise, I went with a silver statement necklace from H&M and a darker lip. If you want the exact same lip shade, head over to your closest MAC cosmetics retailer and pick up the “Whirl” lip liner, which can also be bought here. To make the outfit more wearable in the daytime, I opted for a simple tiny leather bootie from Sam Edelman. You can find two cool pairs of similar boots here and here.

Though his runway collection is a little avant-garde than the everyday look, there’s always certain steps you can take to make them more wearable and Alexander Wang-influenced. Each piece can work on its own as well as together, and when you’ve got multiple ways to style each piece, what else could be better?
