Black and white are forever the perfect pair. You see the color mash-up on the streets practically on the daily (it’s so timeless and somehow never manages to get old or tired), and probably turn to the colors for inspiration—when you’re unfortunately lacking it—too. But other than a white oxford shirt and black trousers, there are so many ways to match up black and white for a fresh (not outdated) look. Try out the outfit we’ve put together for you below for an edgy, stylish, and—above above all else—classic look (that you could totally repeat now and again!).
Eleven Paris Saintlyn W: This saintly spin on the late Hollywood bombshell Marilyn Monroe is a chic stance on pop culture (and on how to wear black and white).
Topshop Window Pane Check Boyfriend Blazer: This black-and-white checked blazer harbors a slightly vintage eighties feel (which we love, just don’t pair it with, I don’t know, teased hair and anything spandex)—awesome for adding some fun to your blazer collection (prints are always fun).
American Eagle Super Stretch Skinny Jean: Jeans. Black. Skinny. Stretchy. Nuff said.
Dr. Martens Women’s 1460 Boot, White Patent: These boots are what stylish, devious villains would wear (if the villain was a grunge-loving skater in 1996), so why shouldn’t you? No, we’re not implying that you’re a villain (we don’t know you that well), but we are implying that you should dress like one—and these boots are the ideal start.
