1 Shirt, 5 Ways

1 Black-and-White Shirt, 5 Ways


Black and white is one of this season's top trends. What's better than one blogger showing you how to try it? Five, of course. So I teamed up with four fellow style bloggers to show you how we'd each wear the same black-and-white striped blouse.

Black & white blouse + red lips


I'm a minimalist at heart, so I stuck with the two-tone palette with black jeans, black pumps, and a white clutch. Does this make me look like a ref? Before I'd even asked for his opinion, my husband handed me his phone with the search results for "sexy referee Halloween costume." Well, at least he included "sexy." For the finishing touches, I went with the deliberately undone half-tuck (love this tucking tutorial), cuffed my jeans, and added a single pop of color with a bright red lip.

I love how the other ladies weren't afraid to show some leg and inject more color into their looks. Be sure to check out Moi Contre La Vie, SF Shop Girl, Bethanimalprint, and Cara's Cliche to get the scoop on how each blogging babe styled her black-and-white blouse.
