Today I'm styling white jeans and a black sheer blouse based on inspiration I found on my pinterest
board, "My Style".
I love the way the inspiration photo styled this combination with multi strand pearls and leopard print. It is a classic yet trendy look. She opted for a full tuck and a leopard belt which is such a polished and sophisticated look.
I chose to do a partial tuck with my black blouse. I like to do this especially with a long or full blouse (similar) (similar) like the one I'm wearing. I think it works well with my white straight leg jeans (similar) (similar) and is generally more flattering to a softer figure (the extra backside coverage is never a bad thing). The chunky heel black sandals (similar) I'm wearing help to make my legs appear longer. I scored my pearl necklace at the thrift store for a couple of dollars but I've link a similar option here, here and here.
This outfit is one that will take me from summer to fall without any problem simply by changing out the sandals for closed toe pumps or even some black booties and adding a scarf or poncho when the weather cools. I love clothes that serve multi seasonal purposes like these.
You'll notice that most of my staple wardrobe pieces are transitional. I find that spending a little more on quality basics that will work almost year round is actually a money saver in the long run. I have washed these white jeans a ton this summer and they have held up beautifully.
It doesn't get much more classic than white, black and leopard, right? Do you own a leopard bag, belt or shoes? If you don't, you really should, it adds a pop of fun to any outfit.
Happy Friday my friends!
I've styled these same white jeans and a floral top here.
