In Black and White

H&M jacket with fringe

When dressing myself, usually I start by picking a piece of clothing and then build around that. Sometimes I pick a statement item that narrows the option of the items I can pair it with. Other times, I start with the most basic of basic like high-waist jeggings. When you go with the latter, you’re pretty much starting with a blank canvas. The possibilities are endless.

So when I’m stumped on what item to add next to the outfit, I pick another parameter to narrow the options. For this outfit, I chose only items that are black and white. Mixing-and-matching patterns and textures are fair game, as evidenced with the jacket and booties, as long as you stick to the same color family.

    Majorly crushing on the boots. I really want a snake print pair but can’t seem to find the right ones. The entire look is so great on you.

    I love this! My outfits have been mostly neutrals, and especially black and white lately. This is a look I’ll have to refer back to when I feel like I don’t know what to wear!
