Black & Beige Outfit With Dior J'adior Slingbacks
Beige & Black Color Blocking Look
To kick off spring 2019, I put together this color blocking look that makes me feel elegant with a pop of personality. Beige and black is one of my favorite color combinations because they form an absolutely contrasting look without being as harsh as black and white. I love how this color blocking outfit produces an expression of class and luxury and still looks light and casual.
Shop The Look
Let‘s address the Dior in the room first. I finally took the plunge and bought the Dior J'adior Slingback Pumps in nude patent leather. I recently got invited to a New York Fashion Week event and that's the final straw - I have no shoes to wear! (#eternalproblem - a closet full and nothing to wear) To be honest, they are not the most comfortable shoes but how BEAUTIFUL are they! I was torn between the Dior slingbacks and the Manolo Blahnik BB pumps and when I tried them both on, Dior J'adior just catches your eyes immediately. I was wearing simple jeans that day and those shoes elevated my outfit instantly and I started to look like I belong in Bergdorf Goodman (not gonna lie, it was intimidating shopping there). So I went over my budget and purchased the J'adior slingbacks and I don't even feel guilty.
Black + Beige = Parisian CHIC
This color blocking outfit evolved around the striped pants from &otherstories. They are high-waisted and slightly cropped. I styled them with a black wool cardigan with gold dinosaur buttons and shoulder pads which is also from &otherstories. (in case you haven't noticed, I'm obsessed with &otherstories). I love the vintage vibe of padded shoulders and the dinosaurs add a lot of whimsical characteristics to the elegant look and so does the hat and double ball earrings. I added a lace cami underneath the cardigan and I truly enjoy the romantic details of lace peeking out. The corduroy baker boy hat is very fun to wear and keeps me warm too. The black velvet choker and Dior slingbacks finish the entire outfit off with extra Parisian CHIC.
