As Karl Lagerfeld once said, “black and white always looks modern, whatever that word means.” The perfection of a high contrast look is hard to put into words, but we know chic when we see it. It is a safe combination, some might say, but also it is the most elegant look of all.
The problem is, simple and easy are two different things. Monochrome is simple but wearing it requires a bit of forethought. Try too hard and you’ll look like a French mime. Don’t try hard enough and you’ll look like a bored waitress (disclaimer: if you are a bored waitress then this is an awesome look, carry on). The key is to choose the right monochrome for you, and style it up (but not too much).
So for today’s post here is one B&W look from me!
I love wearing black, but mixing it with white creates such a perfect contrast and it brings out my most elegant self. That color combination gives you a chance to play with the shades, mix them in any way possible and you will always get an amazing outcome.
Maybe you prefer not to think about matching your clothes, or maybe you’re all about minimalist neutrals, but—for some women—color simply isn’t that appealing, and I am one of them for sure. This is one of my favorite combinations to wear: baggy printed shirt with wide sleeves that falls over one shoulder, stretchable black skirt with long tassels that I am obsessed this season and white high heel sandals. All black and white!
The moment I saw this skirt – I have fallen in love! It is so flattering to any body shape, so comfortable but still quite elegant and chic. I am all about tassels nowadays, it’s one of my favorite trends for sure. This one I’ve bought few months ago and it is sold out now, but I’ve found a similar one from the same website HERE!
This shirt was made by my sister who is a fashion designer in rise, and I love it so much. I can be worn in many different ways, but I like it the most with skirts, it gives such a sophisticated effect to entire look. And the thing I love the most about it, is that is had different prints front and back. Genius!
You already know that the power of black and white pieces can be quite strong—there’s nothing chicer than pairing the new shades together, and nothing more foolproof. In fact, it’s hard to look bad in black and white. And adding tassels to it, it creates an amazing illusion.
And last, but not least, THE BAG! Classic, most perfect Nine West’s bag I’ve ever seen. Color combination is amazing, and it makes this outfit stand out! I love big bags, because usually I am always carrying tons of things with me where ever I go, and this one is just right for me! You can find this baby HERE!
I’ll end this post with the words of Coco Chanel: “Women think of all colors, except the absence of color. Black has it all. White, too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” – so true!
That’s all for today’s outfit post. I hope you enjoyed it!
