The Muse: Classic Chameleon

 Black and white, you really can't say too much about black and white. It always works, there is no occasion that it isn't appropriate for and yet it never looks dated or predictable. There's also something about it that just begs for pattern mixing, lots and lots of pattern mixing. Sure there are other classic color combinations; red, white, and blue, for example, but there are certain connotations that go along with it. Not black and white, it is truly the chameleon of all occasions  yet yet it still plays well with all those other lovely colors in your closet. I confess I do have a hard time with black and white linkups however, because I feel like with such a simple color palate the details all need to be exceptional. In reality I'm just over thinking it. There's a reason this duo is classic, and you don't screw with classics.
