Repeat after me: “Black and white is always right. Black and white is always right. Black and white is always right.” When the weather is acting schizophrenic and you wake up cold and go to bed having hot flashes, it’s hard to know what to wear! Black and white is easy and it never fails to look chic and pulled together. When I stumbled upon these tassel hem straight leg jeans recently, I just had to have them! These mid-rise jeans embrace the tassel trend and make an otherwise simple outfit fun and playful.
I paired my tassel jeans with two different tops to show you a couple of options. The first top is a classic white poplin shirt, but with an updated, longer length. I have worn this shirt on repeat all winter! I love it because it is long enough to wear with leggings, and it makes the perfect foundation layer for a sweater or vest. The fact that it is a tailored fit, with a little bit of spandex in it, means that it keeps its shape and it looks great on its own as well. The lightweight fabric makes it perfect to wear on its own in the spring and fall.
This second white shirt option is the L.A. Jetsetter Tee from WHBM. I bought this dolman-sleeve tee in blush and black, as well as white, last year, and it must have been a great seller because they brought it back again this year in even more colors! It was such a staple in my summer wardrobe last year because it looks good on everyone and it’s loose and comfy. It is back in all of the colors I bought last year and this year it also comes in red, sage, and charcoal.
I accessorized both white tops with my favorite leather tassel necklace to tie in the tassels on my jeans. On my ears are my wear-with-everything silver Tory Burch silver logo earrings. On my feet are the cutest open-toe mules! I love them because they are soooo comfortable and walkable! If you’ve read my post on Spring Shoe Trends, then you know that this year the mule is back! (Happy dance!) These mules incorporate two other big trends of the season: the perforated suede upper and the block heel. (That’s a fashion trifecta, but who’s counting?) 🙂
Are you as crazy about the black and white combo as I am? It’s one of my standard go-to pairings! I wanted to give you a few ideas and suggestions for keeping it fresh by incorporating some of the current trends of the season. I’d love to know what you think about posts like this!
