Ok, you’ve got to admit, everyone likes wearing black and white. We do it so often we don’t even realise it sometimes. Long gone are the days where only musicians, grooms and chefs dress in penguin colours. Black and white attire is so common and popular, I actually find it a little bit of a drag to gaze upon someone wearing a white skirt and black pants or skirt. In our modern day and age, we can be more creative with these shades. Think outside the black and white square. Here are some stylish women who whimsically display their affection for the colours and inspire you and I to wear black and white more, in a nouveau way.
I don’t know which caught my eyes first- her beautiful stripey dress (it is rare to see both horizontal and vertical stripes in the same garment) or her red doctors bag. Picture taken by The Sartorialist. I love her 2 tone Oxford shoes as well. What a lovely balcony.
An off-duty model taking advantage of her Chanel dress and black patent accessories. The dress has gorgeous Renaissance detailingI love the little bow at her neck and the hemline. Karl Lagerfeld is a genius. Check out the ladies checking her out.
Karla of Karla’s Closet – I follow her blog on BlogLovin’ and she never disappoints with her outfits. Always beautiful in her photographs, she combines vintage and desinger gear with such applomb. Love the gold-rimmed Ray-bans and the black and white checkered leather mini. I want I want!
Only a great figure like hers can carry off a white body-con dress. Ladies. if you are not a size6, don’t try this at home- wear the black version instead. This lady wears it with such ease and confidence, I would have applauded her if I saw her on the street. And I absolutely adore her cutout wedges.
So stylish. I think every girl needs a black and white ruffled dress- this dress easily transitions you from day to night, from office to party, from season to season. The shirt collar adds formalitry while the ruffles scream fun and frivolrity.Just add killer black accessories.
I remember giving this girl the thumbs up when I commented on her look on Elle Street Chic. I think I was the only one. Everyone else thought her back-to-front look was strange. But she has a great figure, so I applauded her originality. Plus, those white and black towering wedges are simply stunning. I want I want!
This is a distinctive Sass & Bide look- maybe you can only recognize the Black Rats leggings. This is one of my favourite looks, a cute black mini with black leggings and a tuxedo jacket. The beauty of this outfit is that you look edgy and smart and the white jacket adds an unexpected touch to the all-black-ensemble most people would have opted.
I don’t know where to begin – I love everything she’s got on. The jacket and skirt is a great pair, fantastic detailing! I adore her strappy booties. They are Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony boots! I like how she kept her her tousled and legs crossed- a great shot!
