Why You Want to Wear Black and White
Today, we are continuing with the black and white theme. View last weeks black and white look.
Spring is around the corner and winter is quickly going to be forgotten. Spring wear is everywhere and I’m looking forward to the pale creams and whites. Have you picked up the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar? So much black and white. When you do get a chance to flip through its pages review the seven key pieces for spring, number one and seven are my favorite! A cropped pant, which I already wear religiously, and a pleated skirt. I’ll be sharing those 7 key items with my own spin in next month’s posts.
Tips For Wearing Black and White
Here are the things you should keep-in-mind when it comes to these black and white looks.
Number one: it’s easy. You know… there are those mornings when you are in a rush and you don’t have time to coordinate colors. What do you do? Wear black and white. This means, you don’t have to worry about whether or not those burgundy pants go with that powder blue top.
Number two: it’s flattering. Black and white will almost always make you look slim and slender. A pair of black pants will instantly make you legs look tall and lean. The same thing can’t be said for white, so unless you’re tall and have legs for days, I would advise that you think twice before wearing white trousers or denim as they can make you appear wider than you really are. Believe me, this is one of the reason I don’t own a pair of white jeans.
And last but not least, black and white will almost always look chic. With little to worry about when it comes to wearing black and white looks just make sure the clothes fit you correctly and you’ll be set. This contrasting color combination is universal, very appealing and you can easily adapt it to your personality and comfort level.
This is my weekend black and white look, well almost black and white, I snuck in some color with the heels. It’s a little badass with the leather jacket, feminine with the decorate sleeve on the blouse, slimming with the super black cropped jeans and stylish with the embellished heels.
You can add your own flare to this two tone ensemble by picking a single piece you want to wear and just build on from that. For example, I started this look off with the white blouse. I then wanted to tone down the shirts daintiness with a leather jacket which made wearing black jeans a given because of the black and white theme. And voila, that was my thought process for this look.
