get that look: BLACK AND WHITE

It's hard to go wrong with black and white; it's simple and easy.  BUT you don't want to fall into a boring outfit just because you went with "safe" colors.  So how do you take a simple black and white outfit and make it pop?  Texture and layers!

Sienna Miller demonstrates this with a casual black and white textured outfit.  She has layered a tank over tapered leggings creating a jumpsuit-like feel.  Then added a bolero with a cut out pattern down the sleeves.  And finished the look off with a fun necklace!  You can put together a similar look right now on Badjoan.com...

Start with the Rails Ruffle Tank which is extra long and features ruffled armhole edges and a button detail down the front.  Then throw on the Lizzie Parker Seamed Leggings which are high waisted and feature a seamed detail up and down the legs as well as a drawstring detail at each ankle allowing you to ruch and create texture.  Finish your look off with the Purp7e Long Sleeve Shrug, featuring a wide ribbed collar and pointelle sleeves, and accessorize with the Lisa K Soho Necklace made up of gold chain link and pearls.  Simple black and white but far from boring!
