Welcome back to 23 Days of Spring Fashion! Today I’m styling a black and white date night look for spring.
I love the laidback/luxe vibe of this drapey tee, and the ball chain details on each sleeve give it a little extra pizzazz. It has dolman sleeves, a modest scoop neck, and it’s about 24″ long in the regular size. (The petite is 22″ long.)
The rayon/spandex blend is super soft and drapey with a hint of stretch, making it easy to dress up or down. It runs true to size; I’m wearing the small.
Bookending an outfit means wearing the same color on top and bottom — and often it is referred to matching your shoes to your hair color. Although in this case, it can also apply to the top.
Repeating colors on the top and bottom parts of the outfit frames the look, and it’s an easy way to pull an outfit together.
I styled these Jeffrey Campbell quilted slide sandals with black kick flares a couple weeks ago. The square toe, quilted leather, and sculpted heel are very on trend right now, and I think these are so flattering on the foot.
They have a 3″ heel, which gives me a nice bit of added height, but they’re still walkable. I would say these slides run true to size, although I almost always have to size down half in slides, which I did in this case.
I cut my white jeans to be more of a cropped length so I can wear them with taller shaft booties, and this length also looks great with sandals for spring/summer.
I picked up these Paige Hoxton skinny jeans at Bloomies when they were on clearance for $55 a while back… I know, sounds too good to be true, right? Unfortunately, they only seem to be available now at Revolve, and they’re full price, but this pair of Kut from the Kloth Donna skinny jeans is very similar for under $100.
Puffy ruched clutches are another big trend right now, and I love this metallic Rebecca Minkoff Ruched Clutch for leveling up a casual look for date night. It’s currently 25% off at Bloomingdale’s, and it’s also available in black.
I accessorized with silver to coordinate with the bag and the ball chain details on the sleeves of my top.
This Lucky Brand layered pendant necklace is old, and it doesn’t seem to be available anymore. I really need to update my silver necklace situation. I don’t have a lot of options at the moment.
I also wore my Kendra Scott filigree hoops, and the Victoria Emerson Alicante boho cuff. I have a lot of her bracelets, but this is one I come back to time and time again. I love the mix of silvery beads and coins, pale crystals, and metallic chains.
Black and white is such a chic combination, and it never seems to get old. I think I style one of these looks just about every spring/summer season.
In this case, I like how the drapey top offsets the white skinny jeans. If you’re worried about white making you look bigger on the bottom, it helps to wear something with a bit more volume on top for balance. And then the black sandals anchor the look.
