Sometimes all you want to wear is good old black and white!

Especially when you have a new fabulous asymmetrical top to play with. This one from Stella Carakasi plays both with the high low effect as well as triangles.

It creates fabulous vertical lines and gives me an all-round flattering and lengthening silhouette. I also like the way the top moves when walking.

The lengthening effect is further enhanced by my super sleek yet super stretchy skinny jeans from Fabrizio Gianni. These are quite possibly the tightest jeans I have ever worn, yet they are so stretchy that they are still super comfortable. An extra bonus is that they are long so together with some comfortable pumps from Rockport they make me appear to have super long legs. (I don’t as a lot of my height comes from my long torso and NOT my legs).

Of course I added some much needed color close to my face which this necklace from Ken Samudio duly provided. I think I should have worn it slightly higher than shown on this photo though. Of course my bright sunglasses help too!

Do you love to wear black and white? How do you wear it?


1 Susan

Love your outfit – but you listed everything but your handbag!!!! I’m looking for a red tote. Where is it from?


2 Sylvia

I bought this years ago from a small shop in The Netherlands. I don’t know the brand….

Love that black, white and red. I have got 2 red bags that go everywhere I go:) But your shirt is the best. Amazing the way you styled that casual chic cool with heels! Sabina | Oceanblue Style

Thanks I love it too. I find this a very modern way to wear pumps!

5 Lois

I really like the top, but it’s not available on the Stella Carakasi website. When is it from? (This happens a lot and is very disappointing!)

6 Sylvia

I’m really sorry about that. This ia a new top and popular things sell out fast in fashion… I could not find the top anymore on the Stella Carakasi site, so I assume it’s sold out. I will try and find out if it comes back in stock.

7 Sylvia

Lois, I found the top. Only a few left though so need to be quick:

You look great Sylvia, I love this look and the long white top is very stylish and chic. Oh and yes, I love the red bag too!

10 Greetje Kamminga

LOVE it, WANT it. Love the skinnies too. I am totally in love.

11 Greetje Kamminga

Forgot to say you look fabulous in this outfit, but you know that I am sure.

12 Lois

The necklace is not on website either. Sylvia, maybe you need to have your own line of clothing and accessories!

13 Sylvia

Haha thanks Lois. The thing is I often wear a mix of old and new thing things. It keeps thing real here at the site, but the downside is that you cannot always shop my complete looks. I bought the necklace last year.

14 Patti

Love this flowy asymmetrical top, Sylvia. It suits you beautifully.

15 Petra

Black & white can take you anywhere. Love the bag and sunglasses with it – very you!

16 Gayla

I think this is the most flattering outfit you have worn in the last few months that I have been following you.

17 Elaine Lascher

This outfit is so slimming and it looks soooo… comfortable! You look fantastic.

18 Victoria

I found the tunic at the Stella Carakasi website and I just have to say-you wear it MUCH better than the models shown there. I wouldn’t even had considered it based solely on the catalog photo. It’s too bad my size is already sold out!
