Channel Your Inner Audrey Hepburn with Classic Black and White

Channel Your Inner Audrey Hepburn with Classic Black and White

There is something so striking about a woman dressed head-to-toe in black and white, the look is sharp,  while giving off an aura of elegance.  Whether you want to channel your inner Audrey Hepburn with a simple LBD (little black dress) with a multi-strand white pearl necklace, or any of her other simple, yet always classic style choices, you can bet one thing for sure;  you can never go wrong with black and white!  Leave it to Audrey to keep her casual looks so timeless that we are still wearing them today!  Take her classic black turtleneck that she paired with black or white skinny pull on pants, it’s not only never gone out of style, but is a true trend for fall 2017.  The turtleneck is back in a big way and skinny pants as well, and we’ve got both!

Even if you are not a big Audrey fan in the way she dressed (you’ve gotta love her movies!), black and white together doesn’t have to be put together and styled simple!  Add a fun and funky, handmade. one of a kind belt, or a statement piece of jewelry.  Not one for the simple flat shoe?  Add a heel, or on trend boots to your ensemble.  Speaking of styling “outside the box”, we are going to say this loud and clear:  White jeans can be worn all year long (yes, that includes winter)!  Pair a white jean or white skinny pant (buy it here) with our Joseph Ribkoff Geometric Patterned Jacket (buy it here), and our Sno Skins Black Turtleneck (buy it here) and a pair of black boots or booties, and you have a great look for date night, or lunching with the girls!   Feeling more of a 60”s mod vibe?  Go for black and white stripes, geometric patterns and color blocking.  Check out any black and white,  mod florals, swirls, diamonds or circle patterns in shirts, pants, skirts or dresses.  Best of all, this combo will always remain true to itself — timeless, elegant and striking!
