I love the black-and-white color combination, in terms of clothes, but sometimes I feel like it’s so…tired, you know? I must confess, though, that my love for that particular combo has never died; I’m just trying to find new ways to wear it and make it work. I’m currently in Seattle for a blogging event, and I had recently purchased a new white skirt. I was DETERMINED to wear it to one of the parties, but not with just a plain black top and shoes. I studied my closet, and pulled together (what I think!) is a fresh take on the classic color combo.

So, yes, I did still pair it with a plain back top, but I tried to use that as a backdrop for a “statement” necklace that matched the skirt. Then, rather than the expected (i.e., plain black pumps), I tried to keep the interest factor up with python heels that pulled together the colors of the top and the skirt. Voila!
