STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Black and White and Chic All Over

For most of us spring and summer are all about colors, florals and more colors, but it is also time for all those summer internships where we have to try to stay comfortable while looking chic. This Fashionista nails a perfect summer internship outfit without a single piece of pastel or floral while simultaneously maintaining that perfectly stylish yet comfy ensemble we can all use. Even without the standard burst of bright colors or prints for spring this Fashionista put together an understatedly classic and interesting look. Instead of mixing and matching colors or patterns she uses different textures and structures. Her soft tunic style white cotton shirt and simple black leggings are like a blank canvas to take the outfit any which way. She pairs it with a structured black blazer to give it a classic chic touch and a pair of amazing suede buckled heels for a little edge. She keeps colors minimal with a single turquoise stone necklace and a gray cross body bag- just the right amount of color, a black or white bag would have made the outfit too monotone but just the touch of gray stays in the same color family while making the outfit more interesting. The mix of loose and structured pieces makes for a simple and chic outfit.

Hint: Start with leggings and a simple top adding pieces and accessories to make an outfit uniquely yours. For a night out add a bold necklace or a splash of color.
