Black & White for Instant Style

Above I’m pretty casual in distressed denim and tee, but undoubtedly the look is elevated by the color palette.  My [very old] black tank, similar here and here and white wrap cardi, similar here  is a classic combo that I wear over and over with black or white jeans, similar here or if you like a more classic look try these here or here

Of course it is the chunky jewlery that takes the look into the next level, as you probably realize by now I’ve been collecting striking pieces for most of my life.  These items have actually reached the state of FREE items on my Cost per Wear scale ;O haha!  The leather cuff studded with silver metal and crystals is around 10 years old by DSquared2, I’ve done a bit of a search and found a few alternatives that would have a similar effect here one by the same brand, currently on sale :D, or I looove this one here  or how about this one for fierce fabulosity here The horn pendant was from a Spanish brand called Unode50, One of 50, and as I bought it 4 years or so ago, clearly it is not still available, but similar here and the skull pendant, exact here was likewise purchased several years.

For the next look the addition of a schoolboy style jacket renders the B&W pallete even more chic.  I’m wearing the same scarf which is a very old one from my fav Zadig, if I were to reappraise this look I’d defo add an McQueen scarf here or here or I also like this one from Kenzo here  The blazer is linen [current but sold out Zara] similar here and I like this one here

Here I’m looking angelic ;O in the same outfit…the jeans [black this time] are old favorites fro Zadig, the new rendition is here and these ones are on my lust list ;O here or for a less pricy option here

The boot obsession you will all be familar with, although soon the temperature here will be too hot to wear them!  These are the real deal here but if you really love the style there are many similar looking copies around, from Basalt is my favoritehere My box bag is a previous season Zadig, here is this season’s version.

I sometimes pin this ribbon brooch to add a vintage military feel, similar here  and my other jewelery has all featured on the blog in the past, mostly from the aforementioned jewelery brands.
