I have collected quite a bit of clothing during my time on this planet, and while I do have pops of pink and pretty patterns, I always seem to be drawn back to the basics of black or white. Safe? Maybe. I prefer to call it classic, contemporary, even minimalistic. Pairing black and white might seem obvious or boring, but if done with well tailored interesting pieces, it is anything but your average cater waiter uniform. Incorporating different textures like lace, leather, satin, or chiffon, will take your look from flat to fully dimensional. Trust me, no one will mistake you for the hostess at your local Olive Garden.
When you invest in quality pieces, you can mix and match them for all new looks that are anything but boring.
