classic black and white for work
Hello everyone! After some much needed time with my loved ones, I am now back with a classic, black and white work outfit. When you know that someone might show up unannounced at work or you are out of inspiration, a classic black and white look is always a great idea. To me the easiest and quickest outfit to put together is a chic dress coupled with a fitted blazer. The black skirt, white top and dark blazer combination is also a great option that doesn’t require much thinking as long as your closet doesn’t have too much to offer. Editing and organizing my closet space is a constant project for me. Since your style continuously evolves, so does your closet. I always try to put things in storage that are not in season or sell my gently loved items that simply just collect dust on the hanger. A transparent and well organized closet cuts down on my morning routine quite a bit.
Today’s outfit is classic and modern at the same time. The colors, the simple lines, the classic pumps and the skirt are all timeless elements while the loose blouse with the flared sleeves add a touch of trendy to the full look. The blouse is a versatile and lightweight piece. You can easily transition from your desk to a casual, jeans look with this top. Since the fabric is so light, you can easily layer with it and the tie offers a few different styling options.
