Black and white is the ultimate combination — it goes together better than peanut butter and jelly, and with less mess. These classic colors capture an old-time charm, channeling beauties such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. When meshed together, black and white provide class and sexiness that is unobtainable with any other color combination. I found this Fashionista sporting this timeless trend in a fun and modern way, while still maintaining the colors’ antiquated air.
When paired with different tops and accessories, this Fashionista’s fitted, striped skirt can be worn on many different occasions: it could be worn to the office or to a concert, to a family dinner or to the movies. However, paired with a simple black tank and some fun silver accessories, this look is perfect for a night out on the town with her girlfriends. With this outfit, she would be prepared to do anything the girls decided to do! Her pulled-back hair is sleek, yet functional for a night of dancing, or even a night of relaxing.
When wearing black and white, accessories are key. Although these colors are classic and beautiful, they can get a bit boring. Silver accessories, like this Fashionista’s long knotted necklace, are always appropriate; this will give the colors a more modern feel. If you are aiming for a vintage look, out on some gold accessories. Since black and white are both neutrals, you can also have a bit of fun with your accessories: try pairing these colors with something in a bolder color, like royal blue, or try a bib necklace.
Take inspiration from this Fashionista, and try out the black and white trend. With this look, you can look like a modern day Grace Kelly, or a Vogue-ready Madonna!
Hint: If you can't find the right jewelry to spice up your outfit, try adding a punch with brightly colored shoes.
