#TBT: Black and White

#TBT: Black and White

Black and white has been a killer fashion combination since Adam and Eve (kidding, but not really). It might be the most basic yet favored apparel pairing in fashion history. Whether in ‘60s mod, like the photo above, or on classic Chanel suits, this color pairing is far from neutral and has truly stood the test of time. What’s black and white and red all over? No, it’s not your high school algebra test. It’s you wearing these updated iterations with the perfect red lip!

1. Whether paired with a crop top or a plain white T-shirt, the Lisa Marie Fernandez Gingham Poplin Skirt ($495) is a statement look for a daytime brunch with flats.

2. Equal parts tough and sweet, Lionette By Noa Sade’s Gali Earrings ($135) will pair with countless outfits.

3. One-pieces are the new bikini, especially when they look like the Wildfox Bel Air Stripe Swimsuit ($150).

4. Scarves aren’t only for the colder months. The Donni Charm Picnic Bandana Scarf ($135) is a lightweight and playful option for the true dog days of summer.

5. Since hats are such a must-have item during the summer, you have no reason not to add the Genie by Eugenia Kim Cecily Hat ($88) to your collection.

6. Black and white sunglasses will go with ALL of your summer outfits. The Swarovski Diva Black and White Sunglasses ($250) get bonus points for their subtle, yet still noticeable, dose of sparkle. Can’t you just picture them on Marilyn Monroe?

7. The Elizabeth and James Enno Polka-Dot Cropped Top ($122) feels vintage-inspired but in a completely modern silhouette. Pair it with your favorite white skinny jeans for date night.

8. We’ve already deemed Soludos the must-have shoe of the summer, and their Black and White Barca Flat ($43) only supports that claim.

9. Want a clutch to wear to the countless summer weddings you have this summer? Look no further than Rafe’s Azura Asymmetric Striped Minaudiere ($495). The black and white coloring will match even the ugliest bridesmaid’s dress hue.

Wear one, or wear them all together! Black and white goes great with mixed patterns and prints.
