Basic black and white doesn’t have to be just that – basic. I often wear all black, all white, or black and white together and have found that the trick to wearing these monochromatic colors is to mix textures and designs together to create an outfit that pops.

This Bronet top from VICI Collection isn’t just your typical off the shoulder top. The subtle peek-a-boo slit across the top of the shirt adds an edgy detail to the look. I love the luxe fabric of this shirt and the fact that it isn’t super fitted nor cropped. This top can be worn tucked in or tucked out making it versatile to wear with basically anything from skinny jeans, leggings, or denim cut-offs.

I paired this chic top with white, skinny jeans also from VICI Collection. The ultra soft denim with the ankle zipper details and subtle fray at the hem make this the perfect pair of white jeans. Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day, because I will be rocking these skinnies year round from winter whites to summer neutrals.

Seriously Christine you always look so perfect! I can’t even handle how great you make a simple black and white outfit look. Your styling skills are always so on point!

xo Christina

dailykongfidence August 4, 2016 - 8:28 am

Thank you Christina, your are just too sweet! The edgy cut out on the top of this off the shoulder definitely makes it different than the other ots tops! Add a great pair of heels and your outfit is done! =)

Sharon Wu of Style Lullaby August 3, 2016 - 11:31 pm

You are stunning, Christine! I’m sure you’ve heard this many times already 😉 haha love your hat here! I feel it really adds a little something to your overall look. Oh, and I also can’t get enough of good OTS tops! 🙂 xo, sharon

dailykongfidence August 4, 2016 - 8:29 am

Thank you Sharon. I’m not typically a hat person but whenever I see someone else wearing one, it makes me want to wear one too. I like the “vacay” vibe the hat adds. And yes, I can live with the ots trend for another year or more. Hehe.

Sarah-Allegra August 4, 2016 - 4:39 am

You’re always so gorgeous, Christine! I totally agree with you: black and white doesn’t have to be just basic … I think wearing it in layers in winter or in different textures in summer makes basic outfits so interesting and not boring at all! I totally love your black top’s cut!!

xx Sarah-Allegra

dailykongfidence August 4, 2016 - 8:30 am

Totally agree Sarah-Allegra! I can’t wait for the cooler months to layer on lots of different textures. Black and white will always be chic even in the summer!

Lora August 4, 2016 - 5:38 am

I just love your off-shoulder top with the slits. These are so in right now!

Xx, Lora |

dailykongfidence August 4, 2016 - 8:32 am

They are, aren’t they Lora?! And because there are SOOO many off the shoulder options these days, it’s nice to find one that isn’t like everything else.

Gabrielle August 4, 2016 - 9:11 am

Oh wow, what a stylish look! The top is really special and you wear the white jeans SO well – few people can pull them off so well! Also, those have to be the highest heels I’ve seen in a long time haha, they’re gorgeous!

dailykongfidence August 4, 2016 - 12:15 pm

Thank you Gabrielle! White jeans are definitely difficult, especially because they show everything from the backs of your thighs to the pocket linings, but these are a good mix of soft and thick enough to not show everything. I am a shortie at 5’3″ so the higher the heel, the better for me. Haha.

Diana Li August 4, 2016 - 9:11 am

I love all white looks actually! I tend to shy away from black tops though because it blends w/ my hair! I know that’s a weird reason. But the fact that the top is off shoulder shows just enough skin so it doesnt blend w/ black hair!

dailykongfidence August 4, 2016 - 12:16 pm

I love all white too! I never thought about black tops blending in with my hair, but now that you mention it, that makes sense! I will definitely have to be mindful about that in the future when I take pics. =) But that being said, yes, an ots black top will solve that blending hair issue.

Amy August 4, 2016 - 11:53 am

Tbh, you would look good in anything ; ) but love this black and white outfit – so simple but so good!
