BLACK + WHITE: UPDATED CLASSICS

 

Moto Jacket || Blouse || Leather Leggings
Pumps || Bag || Pearls

Black + white is my favorite combination to sport year-round. In the summertime, I'm always reaching for white skirts and black tops. In the winter months, I tend to favor the opposite, black bottoms and white tops. It's such an easy combination to look put-together and is always appropriate, for any occasion. 

Black heels are such a staple, aren't they? I love these Cole Haan pumps. The almond-toe gives the shoe an updated shape to a classic style, and the heel situated square at the back really gives it a fabulous silhouette.


I've also been really into these Club Monaco leather leggings. These are definitely something a bit more trendy than what I'd usually go for — a tad outside of my style comfort zone. But I really that they've got a faux leather front panel and a pointe material on the back — a slimming feature! I also think this slight contrast helps to eliminate that "cheap" look that's so easy to get with faux leather pieces. Also, these are on major sale. Especially if you sign up for the student discount and pile that extra 20% off on top of the sale price! You can thank me later.

  12. I've always thought leather leggings were a bit out of my comfort range too, but now that I've seen you pull them off so well, I want to get a pair for myself.
