Embracing the Black and White Outfit

Black and white is a simple yet sophisticated and timeless color combination that I often run to whenever I need a clean and elegant look. This color combo can however look too formal and boring so wearing it successfully requires some creativity. An example is wearing a fun and edgy shoe instead of a dressy heel. Another example is mixing casual and tailored or fitted and loose like I did with this light coat and black skinny pants.

3 Ways to Spice up a Black and White Outfit:
  1. Mix different textures and prints: Try a black and white striped top and black pants or black and white polkadot blouse with black bottoms. Different textures like leather and suede all take away the boring from black and white. A fun example is a black leather pencil skirt, white cotton tee and pointy toe heels. So chic and stylish.
  2. Keep it casual chic: Next time try pairing your black leather jacket with a striped tee and those black slouchy pants with elastic on the bottom.
  3. Go completely monochromatic: Try a black top, black pants with a pair of white shoes or all white  outfit with black shoes.
