STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Opposites Attract

Black and white is always a classic look, but for whatever reason, it gets misconstrued as a nighttime look. However, this Fashionista proves this myth completely false. Running around the city in a flouncy white blouse and curve hugging black mini. I especially love the metallic details she adds to her look with a gemstone headband and a pair of gold, metallic flats. While black and white can be such a contrasting outfit combination, soft neutrals in the form of accessories can really help pull this look off. Another thing to keep in mind when matching your next black and white look can be proportions. Black is a figure flattering color, perfect for streamlining an outfit. White on the otherhand, isn't as forgiving of a color. Thus, pairing a baggy, oversized white tee with a fitted black skirt can be one of the best ways to highlight your body in all the right ways.

Try a banded black mini to carry from your summer internship straight to your next night on the town. It's an easy, classic piece to keep in your wardrobe for day or night. So for work, try it with a lacy tee, gladiator sandals and statement jewelry. Or if you're going out at night- keep the skirt and switch in a more form fitting tank and some outrageous heels.

Looking to wear contrasting colors but not sure you're into black and white? Think browns and navy to play up contrasting colors while still keeping it in the neutral family. Don't forget to mix in more colors or patterns through a bag, shoes, or a headband like this Fashionista.
