Holiday outfits: black and white casual chic

by Sylvia

black and white chic for the beach

Last week I showed you the first of the (beach) holiday outfits that I photographed in Singapore. Here is another variation with the tight white bermuda. It’s quite easy to dress it up a bit with the shoes and the necklace and the black and white make it look chic. Now, all we need is the beach weather!

Love those shorts. Have seen similar on Patti at Not Dead Yet Style – may have to fold and buy my first pair of shorts in 30 years 😮

You look super elegant, like a Vogue spread!


That may have been me with these same shorts 🙂 Thanks for the nice compliments!

I’m really loving black and white right now (wearing it today!) and those shorts are really cute. You’re making me rethink Bermudas.


Yes me too (since it’s also part of my capsule). The big advantage is that it is just such a timeless combination!


Very nice, a bit naughty even. At my age (58) I would not dare wearing a bermuda like that anymore, but you are a lot younger. You can still get away with it but I liked it even better with the longer dress top.
What is that nice black and white bit at the top? Is that part of the cardigan? Is it a top underneath it? Or a necklace?
Very, very nice bag as well.


I think you may still ‘get away with it’ on a beach? It’s a black and white (older) necklace that you are seeing from Alldressedup!

This is a very nice holiday outfit Sylvia….you totally look marv!!



Thanks Rebecca!


Inspired by you I bought shorts which are more to my knee instead of far too short.
Still only for on the boat. I have uploaded my boat outfits with these shorts onto your Style Forum.


Great! Will have a look!


Where can I buy that necklace?


I bought the necklace at Alldressedup a few years ago…
