Simply Black and White

It’s no secret that black is slimming and chic, universal and easily worn. So, what’s a gal to do in summer?! Pair all your black favorites with bright white and create endless black and white outfits.

Favored by the minimalist Parisians, who know that simple can be the most striking. Taking two of the most basic non-colors can be attractive while still leaving room to reflect your personal style. Keeping the structure of the clothing simple, playing with prints, and adding the occasional pop of color in your shoe and on your lips, are all great rules for easy dressing in this dynamic duo of black and white outfits, offering a seemingly-endless mix and match quality to your closet.

Being able to get dressed in the dark, or to go from day-to-night are two of the reasons we see so many celebrities sporting black and white wardrobe options. If your skin tone isn’t complimented by the stark white, you have the option to stick to black on top or go for mostly-black prints, so this is a trend that is truly applicable to every woman!

Here’s a few ideas for black and white outfits, so you can #ShopTheLook, and dress down to dress up:
