Keep it Classic: Black & White in 2017

Happy New Year!  We are so thrilled to be opening our doors for our 21st year in 2017!  The New Year brings a lot of change and exciting challenges, and we can't wait to tackle them all.  We are committing ourselves to provide you a weekly blog post to help your confidence in fashion grow in 2017!  This week it's all about staying classic.

Black and white are TIMELESS. 

So in between seasons, or in the midst of one, black and white are neutrals that stand alone.  They are excellent backdrops to show off your favorite accessories too.

This stellar Trina Turk Winter White Sleeveless Top and Pant ensemble will help make 2017 your statement year.  It's versatile enough that it can take you to many events, and all you'll need is a great pair of pumps ( black, pewter, chrome would be my fav then grab a clutch - this could be a fun color: pink, red, purple, emerald ... skies the limit).

I see this look at an engagement party or a play ooorrr for your upcoming Valentines Day dinner :)

Something new for your wrist that is bold yet refined is this fabulour Daniel Wellington Watch.  DW has created a watch that speaks to me.  Their Black Collection is fresh and new...exactly what you'll need in 2017.

The rose gold pops off the black face and can be worn with neutrals or colors. You will want to roll up your sleeve for this watch.

 If the velvet shoe fits . . .

We have a major velvet crush on these black Joie pumps! Your feet will enjoy the comfort of velvet, which make these 4 1/2 high heels easy to wear. Build your date night outfit around these!  I would wear a drape neck black cashmere sweater paired with skinny dark denim or tie up the front of a black silk blouse paired with high-waisted dark flare jean.  Either way, make it about the shoe!

GiGi New York Uber Embossed Python Bone Clutch . . . phew.

A clutch to be worn all year. It's not stark white so it will compliment any look. I like a clutch that can hold my wallet , phone and most importantly - my lipstick.  It still lays flat and not bulky under your arm. The size of this GiGi uber clutch is for a the woman that is ready to graduate from her bulky over stuffed clutch and simplify this year.

Theory basic in black - simple never looked better.

Here is that basic dress that is your canvas in 2017.  This knit high neck dress gives you the ability to show of your favorite statement necklace or layer it with a simple cashmere wrap. 

Cheers to looking fabulous in 2017!

Til next time,
