Black and white is the answer to pretty much the cure to every sartorial dilemma you have. It’s always appropriate, it looks polished even when wearing not very polished pieces, it’s incredibly chic even if the clothes themselves are nothing special, and it’s timeless and seasonless. Really, to make life easier I’ve taken to wearing black and white almost all the time for work (save for the occasional swap for navy or grey), and seriously, it’s made my life a lot easier. I’m really loving the look for casual Fridays or weekends too, especially when it’s colder out. It upgrades basics like jeans and a tee, and to dress up the look even more, I love the model off-duty uniform of leather skinnies with a white tee and structured coat. It’s really cool and put-together but has an edge without coming off as too try-hard for a casual Friday night dinner in the ‘hood. But it’s dressy enough to wear to a more casual environment like mine and still score compliments in the elevator.
