BLACK AND WHITE OUTFIT INSPIRED BY NYFW:
Safe to say now that NYFW is over my favorite look to hit the SS16 runway was the chic, contemporary black and white combo. These looks took over, from the Givenchy runway to Rihanna’s opening NYFW look. This is also making a statement at London’s Fashion Week! Say goodbye to your little black dress, ladies.
Whether you’re at a cocktail party or strolling the streets of Chicago, this dynamic duo is a confidence booster. Sleek, contemporary, and edgy all wrapped into one. For this outfit, I love the perfect contrast of feminine and rocker-chic. I can’t keep my eyes off Elena Bobysheva collection especially this white pleated skirts with the asymmetrical hems and black wool gabardine skirt.
Every Chicago fashionista needs a staple leather jacket in their wardrobe. My go-to? This beautiful Tori Burch wax-leather jacket, of course. Tori Burch’s designs are always sophisticated, so you know you can wear this jacket year-after-year. To add to the edgy vibe, these black silver chain wrapped YSL pointed-toe boots were the perfect pair. Channeling my inner biker chick, I still like that they remain feminine and timeless.
Finally, every fall look needs a fabulous hat to “top” it off. My YSL wide-brimmed hat is the perfect accessory to any outfit. Not only is this a fashionable way to shield your skin from the sun, this style of hat is a hot trend that can be seen on and off this years fall (and spring) runway.
I love this look because every piece is not only essential, but they all happen to look amazing in collaboration with one another.
