Black & White outfit: A classic combo

There is no other color combination that is as classic as black & white. You are guaranteed that if you pair something white with something black you will be fine. Although some may find this color combo very predictable, it most certainly works and looks very elegant. This black & white outfit is simple, chic and elegant with black skinny pants, a black and white sweater jacket and black pumps. Clearly I love black as you may have noticed by now.

Black & White outfit details:

Sweater: The sweater is by Ralph Lauren and I got it on on sale for $45 which is a pretty good deal. Each time I step out in this sweater I always get tons of compliments. The zip and the shoulder detail are my favorite things about this sweater jacket. You can find more Ralph Lauren Sweaters here but remember to look out for the sales.

Pants: The black skinny jeans are from Target and I have about 3 pairs of this cut of jeans. just look for the Women’s Mid Rise Jegging if you like this cut too. The pants cost me only $27.99 which is another steal.

Pumps: Last but not least the pumps are by Nine West. Every girl should own a pair of black pumps and if like me you cant afford the super high end brands, Nine West is a good starting point. Nine West has a lot of sales so be patient and wait till a sale comes on. For example these pumps are usually $90 but I got them for $39. Click here for more Nine West black pumps.

Black and white: How to wear it well

Hello loves! This week’s outfit includes a Black and White casual ensemble that was simple to put together. The classic color combination of black and white is one that will always work no matter what. I also find that this combination creates a very modern and crisp look that will give you a certain elegance. Since it refuses to warm up, I wore a black long sleeved sweater, blazer, white cropped skinny jeans and accessorized with a statement necklace to give it some pizzaz!

Tips on wearing black and white:

Wearing black and white is a no brainer however there are 3 things to consider before you do:

  1. Stay within the color theme: If you are wearing a black top and white pants or vice versa, avoid wearing a pink and yellow scarf for example. I know this may seem restricting and old school but it really just doesn’t work. You want to keep the color them flowing.
  2. Accessorize: To avoid looking too plain unless thats the look you are going for which is totally fine on some days. Add some accessories to make your outfit fabulous. See how I wore a statement necklace to give a bit of character. You can also go simpler with a dainty necklace and stud earrings. White pearls also work well with these 2 colors.
  3. Watch out for stains: Last but not least, when wearing an outfit with white you have to be more careful than usual were you sit, how you eat etc. as you can easily turn your crisp look into a messy one. I have noticed that even the smallest stain on white just ruins the entire outfit.

When was the last time you wore a black and white outfit? How do you like to style it? I would love to know you thoughts on this topic , your comments are always welcome!
