TRANSITIONING INTO FALL: BLACK & WHITE

Blackandwhite

 

WHERE TO BUY

3.1 PHILLIP LIM Sleeveless trompe l’oeil top dress, 31philliplim.com 

 

 

Every year at this time, we find ourselves torn between dressing for the weather or for fashion. It’s too early to roll out the fall “big guns” like cozy sweaters and leather pants. But the dress and sandal combo feels stale. So, do like the editors and embrace the classic black and white color palette. Sharp, timeless andalways appropriate, it’s the color equivalent of a classic like ballet flats, a trench coat, or red lipstick. Either introduce some fall pieces in black or white to your summer wardrobe (time to pull out those black leather ankle boots), or wear a black and white ensemble to serve as a backdrop for your new fall accessories (leopard print loafers!). 


* Prada Rubber-Bottom Mary Jane Pumps are perfect for a rainy day. But don't throw out your galoshes just yet...with their over-5-inch heel, these seem made for fashion rather than practically. 

HEAD TO TOE WORK LOOK

There is something distinctively polished about the look of black fitted pants with a white blazer.

For those that can get creative with their office ensembles, now is the perfect time to take advantage of the cropped trouser pant. Not only is a cropped silhouette perennially chic, it allows you to show off your shoes. Pair with a fitted off-white blazer. Wear a black silk top underneath to give the look a modern feel. You can add color with a pair of statement heels or keep the look ultra wearable with studded black loafers. For a bit more flare, try a blazer with an optic black-and-white print

HEAD TO TOE GOING OUT

With evening lows in the 50s and 60s, graphic black-and-white pieces with a fall vibe are the perfect additions to your night-out mix.

Black + white = cool. Enough said. We love the contrast of the feminine scalloped lace top paired with edgy (faux) black leather shorts. These Acne kitten-heeled shoe-boots have a mod, Edie Sedgwick vibe and add a bit of sex appeal. Perfect for dinner and drinks or a cocktail party downtown. Accessorize with a geometric, gem-like minaudiere and flashy cocktail ring. Do Bordeaux lips and nails for a sexy edge.
