The New Year

Starting the year right by wearing classic pieces and some old time favorites. I've said it before and I will say it again, black and white will always be one of my go-to color combinations (see my other B&W outfits here.)  A great tip to remember when pairing these two basic shades is to look for garments that have interesting textures. Give your outfit more character and keep it from looking too plain by choosing contrasting fabrics. Examples of texture pairings that go well together are leather and lace, knit and denim and like the one I'm wearing, silk and tweed.

Happy New Year, everyone! :)
