In stark contrast to the season’s plethora of hot colors I decided to adorn black and white the past two days. I mixed clothing with some masculine edge to create feminine flair.
No. 1 – I paired white jeans with a new knit Cato top ($10.99 clearance) and black shrug. I wore a pair of thirfted Naturalizer slingbacks ($3) and earrings. Thefauz patten leather belt came with the top. (How cool is that?)
No. 2. – I picked my black & white pinstripe pants to wear with a zebra print tank and black cardigan. I accessorized with wide silver-studded belt, Ann Taylor peep-toe pumps ($5, thrifted nearly new) and jewelry.
Black and white are often the wardrobe staples of a woman’s closets. Most wear the items as a foundation for colorful pieces, however sometimes they are just meant to be worn together. There isn’t anything as striking as a simple black and white clothing ensemble.
Most women have a LBD, but why not change it up a bit with a LWD. Imagine a stunning white shift paired with a black Pashmina, black pearls and black shoes.
Whether you stick to all black, all white or choose to mix it up the choice is yours. I just wanted you to see that there are lots of options out there and they don’t need to look like the checkered flag at the race track. If you’re into racing and that’s what you want to wear that’s OK, but it will not add the sophistication you may be looking for, just a costumey feel.
So do you ever pair black and white together? Do you like to mix is up for some sophistication or do you like to dress it down?
