Weekend Wear: The Black and White Look That Is Anything but Boring

Show everyone why wearing black and white isn’t a cop-out, but a considered and stylish decision, by building a look with pieces that are elevated and made more interesting with texture, embroidery, and other design details.


1. Burberry Equestrian Knight Sweatshirt, $1,005 at Matches Fashion

Perfect on its own or with a collared shirt worn underneath, Burberry’s crewneck sweatshirt goes beyond black thanks to textured fabric and the British brand’s boldly raised logo.

2. Club Monaco Club Collar Stripe Shirt, $80

Provide some contrast to the sweater by pairing it with a white button up shirt. The lightweight cotton construction makes it a great choice for layering, while the subtle stripe and soft club collar keeps the look casual.

3. Dior Homme Embroidered Staples Jeans, Price Upon Request

Up your denim game with these black stretch-cotton jeans by Dior Homme. The slim shape and traditional 5-pocket construction gets a fashionable upgrade with embroidered “staples” on the front thighs and back pockets.

4. Thomas Sabo Power Skull Bracelet, $265

For those who are just a tad superstitious, this Buddhist-bead inspired bracelet by Thomas Sabo adds a protective Maori talisman in sterling silver that stands out against the matte black obsidian beads.

5. Coach Campus Backpack, $595

Coach has made a name for themselves creating quality leather goods. The Campus Backpack is a great staple that can carry whatever you need it to, and it draws on the company’s history with the baseball-inspired stitching.

6. Valentino Open Low-Top Sneaker, $645

Valentino has put their signature twist onto the white sneaker. They’ve been designed to be worn without laces for a laissez-faire attitude, and also feature a black contrasting stripe and the house’s signature rockstuds around the heel.
