Different ways to wear black and white.

There are are so many ways to wear a classic white shirt and black slacks; and you can never go wrong with a black and white combination! It’s the classic that never goes out of style; and every woman needs at least one white shirt, and a pair of black pants in their closet. This classic combination can take you from work to dinner, or happy hour; and it doesn’t have to be boring.

In this post, I’m featuring two classic pieces with a stylish twist from Universal Standard.  The added silhouette-enhancing feature (black band detail) on the sides of the shirt is sophisticated and eye-catching! This shirt can be dressed up or down and it has an invisible built-in stretch, witch I appreciate, because that gives a freedom of movement. Who doesn’t appreciate that?

Now, I owned quite a few black pants and I love when I come across work pants that are not only comfortable but have a stylish twist to them… And these pants are not your average work pants. They feature a removable cuff – which have gotten a few comments and questions! Both modern and comfortable, I love that these pants are made from a mid-weight ponte material and sit nicely at the waist. And oh they also have pockets! 

For a different take on the white and black look, I added an untied bow tie (and a hat), which is an unique touch to a classic black and white look. – What are your thoughts on this outfit?

    Hey Edwige! I love this outfit, it’s very gender neutral, but you still make the overall outfit super sexy with just a pair of heels! I have been hearing a lot of about Universal Standard, and I really need to check it out.
