New White Denim Jacket with Black A-Line Dress- High Contrast

Hi lovely ladies!
It will 95 degrees today! Very hot and sunny. Since our building is air conditioned I teamed up my sleeves AT black A-Line dress with my new AE white denim jacket, white watch, black and white Talbots scarf, and black wedges. This is VERY high contrast for me and so I hope it looks ok. Generally I am more of a medium or low contrast gal. Strangely enough I don't feel high contrast when I am wearing my white denim jeans.

    Nice! You can't beat black and white for high contrast fabness!

    This looks great Mere! The scarf really softens the contrast next to your face. Maybe you don't feel the contrast as much with your white jeans because the line of demarcation is down by your waist.

    It looks fantastic :-)

    I love this, Meredith, and plan to copy as soon as I can find an appropriate scarf. I, too, struggle with the high contrast of black and white next to my face, but with the scarf, it totally works on you.

    Thanks! I'm glad you like it.

    I love hearing that FAB word from FAB you!

    I am happy that the you think the contrast works for me. I'm not too used to it yet.

    Send me a link so I can see how you have styled your white jacket. I would love to see the pics.

    Thank you Madam Business Bombshell!

    I am so glad that you like the scarf with it. That was the way I felt most comfortable putting that much white next to my face. I absolutely agree that white pants don't somehow feel as much of a contrast since they are "lower down".

    Thank you so much my dear!

    I love your sense of style and feel very flattered that you want to copy the idea. It is nice to know that someone else struggles with this also.

    I appreciate your kind words so much! I just went to check some of your outfit postings because I remembered one with cute patterned pants and can't see pics???

    I like high contrast on you - love how the scarf pulls it all together.

    Meredith, you look lovely. This is my favorite look on you so far!

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    Great outfit! Love the new denim jacket.

    Meredith, can you see without your specs, or are you wearing contacts?

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Darn it Ma'am! I was trying to be sneaky and not have them on in the pics since I haven't made it down to the eye glass place to look at frames! In answer to your question, I can see well without them except for driving and little tiny prescription bottles. Everything else I see just great! I'm glad you like the new outfit!

    Thanks Kiwichik and Sassybelle54!

    Well I adoreblackand white and this is a great outfit Meredith. Crisp, clean and simple. Love it.

  • krishnidoux replied 8 years ago

    Meredith, how long ago was it? I usually hide my pics after a while just as a security and privacy measure... but if I knew which one, I'd be happy to post it back. ;)

  • Joy replied 8 years ago

    This is a great look, Meredith! I'm also a low contrast girl, but for some reason, black and white or navy and white don't seem to be a problem

  • christy replied 8 years ago

    Love this outfit, but I adore black and white combos so I might be a bit biased. You have made such amazing strides in finding your style groove. It's been so fun to watch!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Thanks to all you lovely ladies for the boost!


    This was the post and I also sent you an email.

  • krishnidoux replied 8 years ago

    It should be showing now!

    I love this combination on you! I have the AE white denim jacket also but with temps at 106 degrees, I'll have to wait a while to wear mine again.
