Black On White/White On Black

 

There is nothing sharper, crisper or cleaner than the color black, and its counterpart, white. I pair these two colors often and almost always travel with them. Easy to wear, they are the classic fashion duo. For some reason, even though it has become acceptable and even on trend to wear white in winter, I hardly ever wear it on the bottom during the months of November–March. This is somewhat silly, I know, but old habits die hard. Come the spring and summer, I don white on bottom as much as possible, and pray not to eat sloppily—although I never leave the house without my Tide stick!

In these two looks I have paired 2 trendy mid length skirts with opposite colored tops and I think the result is chic and lady like.

 In the first outfit, I have paired this fabulous Black Celine skirt that my friend Carrie found for me at Savannah. I love the retro (1970’s) look of this A-line skirt. My mother, whose fashion sense is impeccable, used to wear these skirts all the time when I was growing up and so I was attracted to this beauty immediately.

This is an all year round skirt and a great investment piece. Since we are officially in summer, I decided to pair it with this crisp white sleeveless blouse by Worth and my comfy black strappy sandals by Gianvanito Rossi (also seen HERE). I love this sleek white clutch by Worth, with its side compartments, as it keeps my essentials in tow and is the perfect lightweight alternative to my larger handbags.
