I never thought it will be that much of a challenge shopping for a purely black and white/cream business casual outfit for work. You can imagine how thrilled I was when I came across this feminine cardigan and classic pencil skirt!
As you may know, a black and white or cream outfit is anything but basic. The power of these pieces can be quite strong, edgy, and chic. To keep the look modern and fun, I paired this look with a floral purse because every woman needs just the right amount of color with their look. No matter your style preference, there is always a way to include them in any outfit.
Sleek and chic monochrome continues to be a favorite of mine especially when it comes to black and white/cream combinations. For this look, I paired this floral embellished, button-down cardigan with a basic black pencil skirt. Even then, the skirt has decorative buttons at one side of the hem. I know that a pencil skirt may not be for everyone but I love them. Maybe not for every single work day, but they are chic when I get bored of wearing capris or other styled skirts. I decided to wear a black camisole under the cardigan to keep with the overall color scheme. Believe it or not, the floral clutch with metal detailing is from Target! It is a fun versatile piece for any wardrobe and fairly inexpensive. The purse can be worn with the straps or you can tuck the strap in to have a chic clutch (like the look I am wearing).
On my feet, I am wearing a licorice patent leather pump. I decided to stick with the theme versus wearing a neutral or colorful shoe with the outfit. Finally, I kept my jewelry simple with gold earrings, a gold Michael Kors monogrammed bracelet with a pearl bracelet, and gold rings. I am really loving the black and white pieces but maybe just because it suits my personality, I guess we will never know.
