Black and white: when isn’t it cool? Maybe you style yourself as smart, rocking a grid pattern or a mishmash of stripes and spots, or perhaps you prefer leggings hugged by a slogan tee.
You might be more into hounds tooth or plaid, but whatever it is, never did two colors produce as much choice and variety as these.
Let’s take Kate Moss, who can play anybody, including vamp.
So naturally, that’s what she did, in a black lace dress and a vintage white cropped jacket. French actor Lea Seydoux, Black and white hoodie on the other hand, kept her pale lacy outfit casual with dark beach sandals.
Step out in something a little more street-wise with T-shirt, black jeans and a fedora. Add a leather bomber to tartan trousers and ankle boots, or go asymetric in a wrap-around skirt.
Get that sixties vibe in overalls or monochrome blocks,
or anchor a thin gingham maxi with chunky footwear. Be demure in a white dress embellished with soft feathers, but style it edgy by pulling on a moto jacket.
Let orange, purple or indigo jump out, or grab yourself a piece of gold statement Ariana Grande.
Break up any tendency to severity with a pattern, be it flora, fauna or geometric.
Florence Welch’s jumpsuit leads the way here –
and mix print sizes. Beyoncé had other ideas, and teamed black leather shorts with a white blazer to devastating effect. You could follow with a clingy ivory mini dress, sequin-enlivened bomber, and killer heels.
And remember, life isn’t black and white – but your clothes can be.
