Black and white is one of those combinations that never fails. For the next few posts I will be showing the various ways I like to rock this classic combination. This first look is a smart casual look consisting of wardrobe essentials like the white shirt, black blazer, black trousers and bag. I wore this to to get some passport pictures taken and my siblings kept saying I was going for an interview. I guess this would work for an interview, though less fitted pants would be more appropriate. Looking back this look is quite similar to this outfit here, I just switched up some accessories and there you go a new look. So you see, you don't really need to have tons of clothes, these past few months have taught me that since most of my clothes and shoes are around the world lol (Thailand and Nigeria).

You could totally rock this for a job interview but it would depend on the company. Since you do have the blazer and white button up that are a little loose fitting you could get away with the pants. However if someone were interviewing for the company I work for then I definitely agree that a less fitted pant would be ideal. Regardless you look lovely and I love how tailored and sophisticated this look is. You look fabulous!

Super cute look!!! I love black and white together! Funny enough it is one of my favorite color combinations. I think is classic but chic and can also be dramatic. What is not to love. LOL ... Can wait to see you other looks! Also love your first pose. I feel like I do the same posing over and over and it get boring. Love that you are do new and different kind of poses
