Just as the snow sparkles, I think people should sparkle and shine too, so I decided to wear this black and white striped sequin jacket. The black and white colors are contradictory, yet go together so well because the human eye tends to appreciate visual contrast. With the jacket being such a statement piece, I didn't want to have too many competing elements, but I still wanted interesting pieces to pull the look together. The black top that I layered under the jacket is simple in color and cut, however, the lace and chiffon ruffles give dimension and variety. A pair of flare jeans with black booties are simple as well, yet are unexpected. Tucking the shirt into the jeans and wearing a belt defines the waist and a gold watch, spike bracelet, black bracelet, and black and gold bangle tie all the metallic finishes into the look, as well as a simple gold necklace. For a classic finishing touches, I added this black quilted satchel with a bright red lip and I was set for a beautiful day! What are your thoughts on this outfit and black and white color schemes?
