If Wearing All Black Is Your Thing, At Least Opt For This Classic Combo

Dressing in January tends to get complicated: some days we're sweater-aggressive and we arrive at the office looking like we just walked out of a Soul Cycle class. Other days we come ill-prepared and end up with frozen fingers or mild frostbite. Sometimes it feels like we just can't win with winter. And somehow this translates into wearing all black, all the time.

The upside? The most classic of combinations is just a step away. Pairing black with white is always chic, and will never be boring. When it's dreary, our wardrobes tend to follow suit, but that doesn't mean you can't get creative. Tap into some patterns or add a red lip for a pop of color. If all else fails, scroll down for some inspiration!
