Lately, I’ve been wearing outfits that are a mixture of black and white. My closet is full of these classic colors, and it’s easy to put different looks together using pieces that I own paired with new items I’ve added for summer. Combining black and white items creates easy outfits that are comfortable and chic. Take a look at these outfit ideas and get inspired to create your own.
One of my favorite outfits for work is pictured above. I’m wearing a classic business casual look that always looks sharp and put together. I added a leopard YSL bag to add a little fun and give a neutral pop of pattern. I like this outfit because it’s easy to transition into a casual look for dinner at a friend’s home. By removing the blazer and heels and replacing them with a denim jacket and flat sandals, I took a business casual look and turned it into a look perfect for a backyard dinner. Leopard print is neutral and goes with everything, so wear the bag with any outfit.
Pictured above is my favorite slip dress by Vince and this t-shirt by ATM or try this stripe silk-blend version by Vince. This outfit works during the day for work when worn with a heel, boot, and blazer. Try also wearing a wedge sandal and denim jacket for a casual evening out.
Pictured below is an off-the-shoulder dress by Vince. I’d wear this dress to a party or a wedding. You can wear black sandals with this dress, but how fun is the yellow sandal by Bottega Veneta during the summer? I love a pop of color with an all-black outfit.

Want basic black tops that aren’t so basic? Try the Madewell and Frame tops pictured below. Add accessories and extra details to complete your look.
I was pleasantly surprised by this blouse by Alice and Olivia, and I think you will be too. The crochet work on the blouse is timeless and beautiful. The top runs small, so size up to get the correct fit and length.
The stripe linen pants By Ted Baker run large, so make sure you size down. Complete your summer look by adding a mint green tote, other colors available too.
