I recently got a package in the mail from my mom. She recently took a trip to Vegas and got inspired by the city's wild fashions. Thanks to that little Vegas trip, I get to show you just how to one-up Robin Thicke's VMA outfit with a pop of color.
The thick ( or Thicke ;)) vertical stripes of these black and white leggings may seem impossible to pair up with anything at all! But really, it's as simple as a solid, bold colored top.
For this square pattern, I went for something a little more nerdy. The squares are loud and just begging for a rich tropical violet! I chose a shell top to keep the urban vibe to this outfit.
On my eyes I'm rocking black gel eyeliner and white pencil liner to create that "monochromatic" look that really gives my lips the kick they deserve. Remember not to overdo the cheeks for this kind of look. Too much color will drown out the power of your black and white leggings!
While the rumor has it that "black is back," I still can't seem to make myself get on the bandwagon without at least one major burst of color. Plus, I've got to squeeze in all the white I can before Labor Day! For the next look I simply added a royal blue pencil eyeliner to my waterline for instant complimentary colors!
Ooh, and do not forget to rock that emerald green color before the fall! I'm doing it here with a scarf from H&M over a white shell lace from Forever 21 and black Zara slip.
