Ready Made Outfit: Not So Basic Black and White


Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.


As much as we love bright colors, sometimes the chicest outfits are constructed from black and white.  Here’s how to combine black and white for a look that’s anything but boring:

1. Start with a plain white button down shirt.  Extra style points for special details, such as tuxedo pleating or french cuffs.
2. Pair the plain white button down with a pair of dark rinse jeans.  Dark blue jeans are classic, but grey jeans are also a chic choice.
3. Slip on the visual centerpiece of the outfit: a swing jacket in oversized black and white buffalo plaid.
4. Accessorize!  For warmth, a pair of cashmere gloves.  For style, a bow-tie necklace, a top-handle black and white handbag, and a pair of shiny black booties.

How would you wear black and white?  Share your style with us in the comments!
