Black & White: Casually Cool, and oh, so Easy

Black, with pops of white, is something we’re seeing a lot of for fall. But we’re not letting go of summer just yet, either. That’s why this is the perfect time to work this “wear now” color story into your closet. While black and white can be graphically sophisticated for work, and modernly dapper for a night out, it can also be easy and comfortable on a casual day – now, and into the months to come. See what we mean.
If you missed out on black and white options for work and after 5, be sure to check them out in our Fashion Finds, and tell us what you think. See you next week.

This black and white bar stripe sweater is a perfect weekend choice. While a stripe like this can seem bold, Cheap Monday - a line of casually modern pieces - tones it down by knitting a speckle into the fabric (click through the "shop it" button to get a closer look). This is great design at an even better price. You can dress it up a bit with a solid button up shirt underneath and dark jeans, or keep it easy with a simple white t-shirt and faded jeans.

We like the way this unique dark blue/black wash chambray works with the sweater. It’s not too matchy and adds some cool edge. In addition to wearing it as a layer under a sweater, because of the unique wash, it's clearly great on it’s own, too. You can wear it with blue or black denim, and it will look amazing with any color (think army green, burgundy, or khaki).

A true black pair of pants will certainly work well with this sweater, and we also like this washed black pair of jeans from Citizens of Humanity, in their modernly versatile straight leg. The black charcoal wash adds an interesting contrast to the shirt and sweater, and keeps things casual.

Add a white t-shirt to complete the outfit. It is super comfortable and a notch above your basic t-shirt, in it's slub cotton material. While it’s still warm out, this Rag & Bone looks great on its own, too.

Don’t’ forget your shoes. These trainers from New Balance have a cool black and white contrast that make these more than a basic sneaker. They have a nice, heavy sole that will take you on an easy hike or a trip to the store, in style and comfort.

Sure, fall is around the corner, but let’s not forget that it’s still August. As we mentioned, the great thing about wearing a black & white combination is how seasonless this color combination is. Tommy Bahama certainly shows how it can work for the warmer weather with this fun linen pattern camp shirt.
