Basics are better
Black and white — the two staples in any wardrobe. While we all have an assortment of these shades in our closets, it’s now time to pair them up this summer.
As we saw on Marc Jacobs’ runway, there is nothing sexier or more sophisticated than this super-hot trend. Join us as we show you how to shop the coveted look.
While a black blazer is a must-have for any working girl, why not try spicing it up with an all-white jacket and dark straight-leg pants. Trust us, everyone in your office will be in awe of just how sleek you look. You just want to make sure the blazer is perfectly tailored — especially when it comes to the seam on the shoulder and the sleeve length. If the jacket is slightly big on you, you’ll look like a snowman — no joke.
To embody the black and white trend, try a black pant, an easy black tank under the jacket and a fierce black pump. You’ll look like the total power woman.
Elizabeth and James James Feather-Trimmed Crepe Blazer $665, J Brand 901 Waxed Low-Rise Jeans $195, Miss Selfridge US Black Tank $18, Joan and David Flipp Platform Pumps $150,
When you’re getting ready for your weekly Sunday brunch with your girlfriends, emulate this Marc Jacobs’ look with an easy tank and chic skirt. While simple, your effortless look will turn all heads.
Plus, you can easily mix and match all of these pieces with other items in your wardrobe. Pair the skirt with a blazer for the office, or the tank with a comfy pair of jeans for a movie with your man.
