Fashion Trend: Black, White & Gold

Fashion Week in New York City has just ended.  Seeing all the fabulous designs has reminded me how much I love fashion and it’s inspired me to write a post about it.  I’ve focused on food lately because I love to cook, I love to eat, and frankly it gets me the the most feedback.  However, I realized that some of my other passions, like fashion and home decor, have taken a back seat to food.  (And specifically baked goodies.)  That’s okay.  It’s my blog and I can do whatever I want.  (As my husband points out fairly regularly.)     🙂

I figured even if you’re a food blogger reading this, I suspect that you wish to stay connected with what’s going on outside of the kitchen (I know I tend to lose track sometimes).     😉

My favorite fashion trend of all time is the combination of a black blazer, white blouse, and gold accessories.  This is one of the most chic looks for so many reasons.  It’s an awesome look for any season and it can be casual or fancy.  Any size woman can wear it and look gorgeous.  It’s a classic look that will probably never go out of style.  All of these pieces can be purchased no matter what your budget is.  Due to the timeless nature of these looks, even those investment pieces that you splurge on will be worth the extra money.

Here are some ideas:

Classic, romantic, or edgy black blazer.

I can’t live without my black blazer, white shirt, and gold jewelry.  What’s a fashion trend that you can’t live without?

  1. I just bought a new black blazer, and now I am thinking I need a gold necklace to go with it!

    1. Tina says:

      That’s awesome! 🙂

  2. Loving those blazers, they have a slight masculine touch to them which I really like! I bought a velvet black blazer last year that I still haven’t worn, can’t wait to break it out soon!

    1. Tina says:

      Ooh, I have a velvet one too and I adore it. 🙂

  3. Joanne says:

    Such a simple classic color combo! Can’t go wrong!

    1. Tina says:

      Totally! 🙂

  4. Black looks so professional, something I really like:) My favorite fashion piece right now would be my sweaters and skinny jeans … although I might have to wait a little bit longer before the weather lets me wear them!

    1. Tina says:

      A sweater with skinny jeans is definitely another chic look. I’d wear that with heels for casual work Friday or a pair of flats/Uggs on the weekend. 🙂
