Personal Style Blog: Classic in Black and White

Be Classic with Confidence

Lately, people have been informing me that I wear a lot of black, which we discussed in one of my latest posts. So today, I’m going to show you how to wear black with confidence. When I was growing up, I remember there was a stigma with wearing black: you were either going to a funeral, emo or goth. Ninety-eight percent of the time, none of these stigmas applied to me. As I started developing role models like my mother and Coco Chanel, I realized that my word for black was “classic”. Chartruse, tangerine and fuscia come and go, but black and white are forever. Last week you could catch me in lace shorts, a button-up, my cape, and Tory Burch boots from the thrift store.
