If you’re looking for fresh style ideas this season, we suggest the art of tonal dressing. It’s a great way to get creative and remix pieces you currently own. While the impact is high, it’s as easy as selecting two to three separates in the same color family (top, bottom, shoe), with different textures, statement cuts, and unique details. When executed with intention, tonal dressing establishes a cool, cohesive look that’s unexpected and eye-catching.
Here, Anine shows how she’s been employing this style trick recently with red, white, and the most classic uniform color of all: black.
Red is a power color by nature, and wearing it all over sends a confident message. Here, Anine pairs the ANINE BING angora Corey Sweater with our cropped, kick-flare Frankie Trouser in red. The sharp silhouette of the retro pants offsets the fuzzy feel on top, for a vibrant and interesting outfit. Though she opted for footwear contrast in the form of our white Frankie Boots, she would just as soon wear this same look with the Stevie Boot in Red Suede, for a true head-to-toe tonal look.
Nothing says summer like a crisp, all-white ensemble—and all the better if it’s done in denim on denim. This look feels classic and carefree, with a slight nod to the ‘90s. Here, Anine styles the Alex Denim Jacket in White with our Frida Jeans in White (these jeans are launching soon, so stay tuned!), and the Frankie Boot in White. Like above, however, she opted for one accessory in a totally contrasting color for the perfect pop—the Larchmont sunglasses in Black.
“To make an all-black outfit dynamic, add different shapes and textures,” says Anine. Here, she demonstrates a deft mix of silhouettes and details: a washed mock-neck turtleneck peeking out of an ultra-saturated black leather jacket; a pair of faded, wide-leg denim jeans that boast a raw hem; and a trio of black accessories to round out the look—patent leather boots, sunnies, and a leather bag.

In preparation for summer, we’re excited to launch our new Technicolor Jewelry Collection: a capsule of rainbow-diamond pieces that are festive and dazzling, yet cool and understated. The small glints of color bring a fun, ’70s vibe to your look. And though the jewelry is undeniably glamorous, it’s still subtle enough for everyday wear.
Inspired by the psychedelic Summer of Love in all its grooviness, the Eternity Band, Hoop, and Bar Stud vary in size and color—red, pink, blue, green, and yellow diamonds. Add them to your existing repertoire of gold, silver, and rose gold jewelry for a delicate dose of whimsy.
At the ANINE BING headquarters in downtown Los Angeles, the music is always on. Hand-picked Spotify playlists are the lifeforce that fuels our creativity and inspires our designs.
The launch of every collection is marked by the creation of a new playlist that captures the essence of that season’s style and story.
The ANINE BING Classics Collection is a selection of our core, statement pieces—the fashion we’re best known for: vintage t-shirts, leather moto jackets, rigid denim, menswear blazers, and studded boots. Summed up, this capsule collection is the embodiment of effortless style with a rock ‘n’ roll edge.
If you look at the names of some of the items in our Classics Collection, you’ll see where our inspiration comes from. There’s the Stevie Boot, named after Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac and the Bowie Leather Jacket for none other, the David Bowie, may he rest in peace.
Check out our playlist below, and crank up the volume. The musical icons represented here were unapologetic rabble rousers, creative visionaries that inspire us now and will continue to for years to come.
