For this week's outfit, we are taking on classic black and white. And giving it a fresh, vibrant spin. Some people like to write wearing black off as 'boring'... but they clearly just don't know how to properly accessorize. We started off our chic look with solid separates that are flattering on every body type. The Row's black 'Leona' top is finely knitted from sumptuous wool and cashmere-blend, with a longline style and unstructured turtleneck that drapes softly. We then added a staple in every woman's closet - a pair of versatile black pants. Crisp tailoring and flattering fit,  Stella McCartney's style is reliably luxe. These wool-blend trousers are office appropriate, but can be easily dressed up for a day or nighttime outing. The star of our ensemble is one of our favorite items to shop for, a fabulous fall/winter cover-up. Balmain's black and white virgin wool-cotton blend striped coat features a wide lapel and belted silhouette that hits mid-length. Our chosen footwear is pretty special too! Alexander McQueen's Pre-Fall '16 collection was inspired by glamorous silhouettes from the '30s and '40s. Crafted from plush black velvet, these pumps are embroidered and embellished with crystals and beads. Any gal who loves a little sparkle and detail is sure to swoon over these heels.  We kept the glam going with our choice of bag. Made with multicolour lambskin and patent leather, the 'Mademoiselle' printed clutch by Chanel Vintage features a foldover top with magnetic closure, an internal logo stamp, and an internal slip pocket.  We continued to have a little fun with the accessories by adding a pair of Saint Laurent 'Loilta' sunglasses. These YSL beauties feature thick cat eye frames, red heart shaped crystal embellishments, dark tinted lenses, and an embossed logo. We polished things off with a big red smooch using Gucci's Sensuous Deep Matte Lipstick in 'Iconic Red'. No matter what place you take this stylish look for a spin in, you will have everyone around you hoping to earn their stripes too!
