Black and White Eternally Chic - Fall 2013

The combination of black and white is timeless and sophisticated for any occasion and remains eternally front and center Fall 2013.   When getting ready for work, daily activities or a night out it is easy to slip on black pants or black jeans with a white sweater or a black suit with a crisp white blouse and complete the look with pearls, pumps or boots.  The result is a standout ravishing ensemble that commands attention and focuses all eyes on the person rather than the outfit. A lasting pairing.   Here are the top five essential black and white pieces necessary for a Forever Chic Style wardrobe.  The clothing that will be highlighted is what I like to wear.  However, there are many other brands that might fit your needs.


I.  The Snow White Queen Shirt:  A white button down shirt is imperative in a closet.  Always select a high quality and well made white blouse.  This blouse can be worn under sweaters with jewelry or alone with jeans, dress pants or with a suit.  Add a scarf, necklace, pearls, earrings creating a tailored and refined moment.  Theory has a wonderful button down shirt that is crisp white, elegant and tasteful.  You will reach for this piece often.   Of course, once you have one white shirt, you will seek out other styles for work and play.

Remember Sharon Stone at the Oscars 2011?  She wore a white shirt and lilac Vera Wang shirt - unforgettable.



II.  Black Pants & Black Jeans with White:   Slip on a pair of black jeans either boot cut or skinny or ponte knit riding pants with boots and white sweater for instant winter magic.   Or add a ruffled blouse with a pair of pants and become a Ralph Lauren model for Fall 2013.  Can never go wrong with black on the bottom and white on the top.  Always highlights ones beauty.  Vince - I usually buy at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.

Paige Denim 'Skyline' Straight Leg Stretch Jeans (Black Ink) - Nordstrom $158




Sold Denim - Soho Super-Skinny Pull On Jeans - Neiman Marcus - $128



NOTE:  Sold Denim jeans are my new favorite. They are stretchy and comfortable.   Found in boot cut and skinny styles.  The Pro Sports Club, Bellevue, Washington currently has a few in stock.   Apparently, Sold Denim, is the sister company of Rich and Skinny.  Perfect for a gal with curves. 

Calvin Klein Horizontal Stitch Sweater - Nordstrom - $89



Sweater - Doncaster - $295
NOTE:  Best kept secret is the Doncaster brand sold in home and online. The clothing is well made using the same fabrics of high end brands.  Doncaster: www.doncaster.com

Ralph Lauren - Fall 2013
III.  The Little Black Suit:  When preparing for a job  interview, a public event or a meeting of substance it is imperative to don a black skirt suit or black pant suit with white for a powerful presentation.   Add a white blouse, black pumps, black nylons if winter and nude if summer for a finishing touch.   This simple outfit is adult sophistication finest moment.  Recommend visiting a department store for a sales persons expertise in finding the perfect suit combination.
