Black and White but Never Boring

Dress - Sandro (similar here, here, and here)//Shoes - Topshop (also in all black)
Clutch - Ela (similar here, here, here)

Black & white with menswear inspiration.  

I'm really feeling the menswear inspired designs this season; I feel my closet is craving some more edgy, smartly tailored pieces.  Additionally I'm loving loafers, and I walked right into this pair at Topshop just before fashion week.  The thing about doing menswear-inspired from head to toe is that you have to be careful to give it a feminine touch to ensure it's still a flattering look on the female body.  Which is why I felt this sleeveless tuxedo-style dress was perfect.  I'm able to wear the masculine tailoring while still showing some leg, and with a deep-V cut so that things wouldn't feel too stuffy and business-like.  

Almost always I will compete a black and white outfit with some pop of color or fun accessory, like this metallic clutch and a red lip.
