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. 



The Black Pant









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.

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani

"A Girls Best Friend"  Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights   for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential.
