Looking for late summer fashions to wear to a ladies luncheon, how about black and white floral? I found this chic black and white floral sweater hiding back in my closet perfect weight for late summer/ early fall.
Black And White Floral Sweater For Late Summer Fashion
Start With A Base Layer In Black For Late Summer Fashion
Yes, it is still HOT, another 97-degree day but with the a/c going it is about 40 degrees. I tell people this is the hottest time of the year and the coldest. So being versatile is the name of the game. I love starting my outfit planing with a basic black v neck top and black pants. Can you say- slimming?
The White Necklaces Was My Inspiration For This Outfit
This white floral necklace was the inspiration for this outfit. White is a great choice when you want to bring attention to your face. I continued to accessorize with my go-to gold hoop earrings and some fun black beads.
Add Black And White Floral Sweater For Style And Comfort In A/C
Now, let’s add the black and white sweater-FABULOUS. I have a collection of these lightweight, inexpensive sweaters from Chico’s Off The Rack. Mostly solid colors, I remember buying this one on a whim and it has been hidden back in my closet ever since. This is PERFECT for late summer fashion, or really all summer long.
Shop Your Closet For Hidden Finds
It really is a shame this sweater has been hidden so long in my closet. The black and white floral print will be great at the beach in the evening when the sun drops and it gets “a little bit” color, or in the fall at the beach.
Remember The Rule Of 3’s When Accessorizing An Outfit
When completing a look, the Rule of 3’s states that I need to have at least 3 areas of interest. The floral necklace was a find from years ago. I bought the matching earrings too, but the necklace is the show here, I think the earrings with it would have been too much. For me Rule of 3’s- earrings, white necklace, beaded bracelet. Also my v-neck top and of course the star of the show- black and white floral sweater. Attention up and out and away from my hips and bottom.
Black And White Floral Sweater Would Be FABULOUS For Many Occasions
This simple yet chic outfit would be FABULOUS for Friday Date Night or even cocktails by the pool. I wore this for a ladies luncheon and everyone was commenting on the sweater and necklace. We all talked about how we need to SHOP OUR CLOSETS more. Most need to do a closet cleanout.
The Complete Look
Here is the complete outfit. I wore my Beyond Proper-Beyond Travel Cropped Pants, v-neck black sleeveless top, Chico’s Off The Rack black and white floral sweater, and my black Gentle Souls wedge shoes. The all-black gives me that column of color that helps me look slimmer and taller.
I had a wonderful time the ladies luncheon It is amazing how when you feel good about what you have on you are more confident and outgoing. This simple formula dressing is working well for my pear-shaped body type. Even though I am overweight I still feel FABULOUS about myself.

Great Story- we had chocolate pie on the table for dessert at the luncheon. A dear friend of mine said she would help me with temptation, she poured salt all of the pie. Well, that worked! Matter a fact, I don’t think anyone ate the pie at the table……
