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.
