You may look at an all black and white outfit and think yourself that it’s a little boring, it’s been done before or you may think it’s super chic and classic. The way I see it, a black and white outfit is fool proof!
Some days I stand in my closet and even though it’s full of items, I yell out “I have nothing to wear!!” But what I actually mean is that I have nothing to wear for the person that I feel in that moment. Instead of trying to scrounge together an outfit I resort to the tried and true black and white outfits. It’s easy to wear and is appropriate for most any occasion.
Although black and white outfits are easy to wear, there are some styling decisions to stay away from. Here are 3 tips for wearing a fool proof black and white outfit:
- Make sure that that your shades match – A great black and white outfit should keep with the same shades. Ensure you aren’t pairing a fresh black with a faded black and that your stark whites aren’t matched with a yellowing white.
- Black may be slimming but white can do the opposite – White pants and skirts tend to make me look a little bottom heavy because of my hips so I stick to black bottoms to slim down the hips and thighs. This isn’t the case for every body type but when it doubt, go with black.
- White = watch out! – Be extra careful when putting on your white tops and jackets after you’ve put on your makeup or self tanner. There isn’t anything worse than having orange markings all over your clothes especially when heading out of the house!
