Forever 21 basic striped top | Zara origami skirt | Zara contrast heeled sandals | Theyskens' Theory "vala" messenger |  Céline "audrey" large sunglasses | Essie "mamba" nail lacquer

Sometimes linear detail does the trick. On days when I'm on the go, I opt for comfortable apparel with a little character. When something ventures in a straight line, I pair it with something else heading in a different direction, like this origami skirt. And you can never go wrong when it comes to black and white. The absolutes do make the largest statements.

Black and white is such a timeless combination and it suits any age. You kept it simple but it worked extremely well.
