Black Pants & White Blouse - Zebra Style


The Classic Vibe







Tired of wearing jeans during the day or evening and need a fashion fix?  It seems jeans and active wear are worn for every occasion.   For the record, jeans are not always figure flattering unless in a dark denim hue with no embellishments.  And, yoga pants should only be worn for gym activities.  If striving for a refreshed look - think no more.  A simple combination of black pants and a white blouse could become the cornerstone of a wardrobe.   The ensemble shouts Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn fashion that never fades and never is out of style. This simple and minimal combination of black with white is showstopping perfection.

I. Minimalist:  The right pair of black pants can be worn today, tomorrow and for many years to come.  The skinny pant is top of mind this season.  And, of course the appeal of the trouser pant with the slight flair is timeless.

III.  White Accessory:  A white scarf adds a touch of brightness to any outfit.  French women do enjoy scarves wrapped around the neck bringing warmth and beauty to the face.  White means calmness, new beginnings and hope.

IV.  White Magic:  Pearls are essential with a classic ensemble.   Of course, real or costume pearls evoke a Jackie 'O image.   Furthermore, a splattering of other white jewels can sparkle against a white blouse.

V.  Sunglasses - A Must:  The final element is a pair of sunglasses that make an entrance.  Black shades are classic and mysterious, while other hues add drama.  Either way never leave home without a pair of stylish sunglasses.
