The Absence of Color is The Presence of Elegance

Few color combinations are as iconic as black & white, but black & nude or black & gold stand the test of time. There are few colors that are absolutely timeless but nude and black are definitely one of them. Together they create a softer, more romantic version of black and white, while still iconic. 

This Herve is equally as romantic as is is sexy. The blush toned panels provide just the right amount of pink to be ultra feminine while the black panels and sexy caged hem give it an edgy allure. And because it's an Herve, it's the perfect figure-skimming dress to add texture and feminine sophistication to any occasion. 

We chose to play up the romantic element of this dress by accessorizing with rose gold to draw out the pink in the nude. Each rose gold piece is set with glittering crystals for ultimate glam! 

But don't be afraid to do the opposite and accessorize with gunmetal and black jewelry for a fun, edgy look! One is not better than the other, just accessorize to your mood ;)

Black and white has been taking over the fashion world for years. It is hard to believe that at one point, the color combination was overlooked because it was thought to be boring and unimaginative. To us, it's minimalist look and absence of color leaves room for our imagination to create new and unexpected looks. It evokes a timeless elegance that we are always happy to embrace! 

We paired our James Top with a pencil skirt, a wardrobe staple, to showcase how a dramatic top such as this could work for the workplace. I mean, why fit in when you were born to stand out?!?

Styling this top with jeans is just as chic as it is with a pencil skirt. In fact, we felt it even evoked a hint of rocker meets glam. This is such a fun look, we envision you wearing it to a concert or some other fabulous date night! This top looks equally amazing with black ripped jeans for a monochromatic look so don't be afraid to integrate it in with your other wardrobe staples.

Have some fun with your accessories! We embraced a more edgy look, but a pop of color would be super fun and show a lot of personality. We won't give you color ideas because we want your imagination to step in ;)

I am not going to lie, this top may be my new favorite top. It is ridiculously comfortable, and ultra-chic. AND THIS NECKLINE (swooning)!! Are you squinting? Yes, those are little flecks of gold! The gold warms up the skin tone a bit and makes us all look a tad more tan than we did before we put it on. I would be hesitant to call this top a peplum but it does have a little bit of contouring that creates a similar illusion that peplum's have (aka it draws in your waist).

Wear this top with bright colors, denim, slacks, or with skirts. Your options are endless!!
