Any time I get the chance to wear these boots, I take it. I liked the idea of wearing them with a thigh grazing coat. The palette was all about white this time. Skinny jeans in a light wash and black accents finished the look. The chunky choker necklace is reminiscent of Madonna’s eighties hey days. Wearing it with classic pieces makes it chic again. The glittering orbs dangling from my ears could easily become the focal point. I’m a fan of how they’re both gold and silver all at once. Great for a cocktail dress and gala attire, too. The final touches being my slouchy black leather Balenciaga bag and lips that pop in red M.A.C. lipstick. Voila!

White on white. Why not? This year, Fashion’s latest trend will be all about black and white ensembles. Simple. Classic. Fresh. You can’t really go wrong here. Black has a slimming effect, while white offers a clean palette. When trying to slim down certain portions of the body, remember to always stay away from horizontal stripes. Instead go for color blocking. Maybe a white blouse and cropped black coat with white slacks? Black stilettos sealing the deal. A white coat thrown over well fitted jeans or a little black dress, will have the same effect. When playing with proportions, make sure everything is fitting your body correctly. If the coat or jacket is loose, swingy or long, make sure the other pieces you choose to wear are a bit more snug. Never wear all of your pieces on the baggy side at the same time, this will look sloppy. Instead play with proportions. Tight versus loose can go a long way. And don’t forget about accessories, from your heels to your clutch and the jewelry in between. Since black and white is such an easy palette to work with, adding in sparkly studs or dangling earrings is a piece of cake. Also, eye engaging jewels and chunky statement necklaces are also making a come back.
