One Good Gingham Deserves Another, Part 1

Gingham was on fashion’s sizzle radar last spring and summer (as seen in this post), and it’s back bigger than ever. For this dressed-up look (can you say date night?), I’ve paired two black-and-white separates in different sized checks. I didn’t buy these pieces to wear together, but when fashion kismet strikes, you go for it. That being said, Part 2 of OGGDA is going to feature each of these pieces as the focal point of a more casual look. All of which goes to say, buy (and wear!) what you love. Especially if you love how it expands your fashion horizons. Check!

The Art of Black and White

IMG_3775There’s no other combination that’s cleaner, chicer, more graphic than black and white. However you put it together, it just works. You can dress it up, dress it down. You could probably wear black and white every day of the week and never wear it the same way twice. (Hmmm…possible future blog post?)

As for Art? Black and white makes a powerful statement there too. Yes, the messaging in this streetwise piece is pretty heavy, but I’m glad its creator found his voice.
