BlackandWhite-WhatWouldGwynethDo

Please explain to me how I am supposed to inject color into my wardrobe when classic black and white looks so simple and stylish!?

Emerson Fry makes staples like a cigarette pant and top seem effortless and fresh in ebony and ivory (above)

A black blazer on Gwyneth Paltrow instantly ups the cool factor on her floaty white dress.

Stripes never look this good in another color combo. A cool take on the navy sailor stripe.

Street style that is polished yet a little punk rock at the same time.

Black and white, Leandra Medine style.

A favorite combo for casual daytime looks.

The uniform of French fashion editors.

And perfectly pretty with different textures and styles.

I will never quit you, black and white.

I promise you that.

But I might let your friend grey in once in a while…maybe.

    Obsessed!! I always try to tie in color as well, but after this reminder of how tres cool black and white is together, I might have to go back to my old ways.

    Thanks.

    I’ve just recently gotten on the black bandwagon – I know, crazy! I’m so pale, with dark hair, and I always felt it was too much contrast- navy was my go to.

    Just a couple weeks ago I was at Ann Taylor going through the sale racks and bought 3 (!) black shirts. As I got to the counter I looked at the girl and said “In my defense, I currently own only 1 black shirt” I think I was the last girl on the planet to have that problem. And now, it’s something black everyday- such a classic!

      Love that – if you find something you love, buy in bulk! I am admittedly in some form of black almost every day, too. Which is odd in Southern California. But I am sticking to it 😉

      Thanks, Cyndi! Everyone seems to love that look but sadly, I don’t know where it’s from 🙁 I love it, too!

        Thank you! I really appreciate you getting back to me! Shopping these days are tricky-not the time nor the body for the look I want to achieve so I am always trying to copycat. I really enjoy your posts about everything, a definite highlight to my days! Thank you for sharing your talent!
        Please, please, please soak up some southern Cali sun and warmth for me. Frigid and feeling meh on the east coast.
