Why black & white is the perfect combination…

Whenever I find myself struggling to decide what to wear, or on days when I feel nothing looks quite right, (yep, I may be a stylist but it can still happen!), I always turn to a black & white outfit combination. There's nothing more chic and nothing easier than styling an outfit that's purely black and white. Whilst the combination is considered a ‘classic’ that doesn’t mean it has to be drab or boring. This combination can look incredibly cool and quirky - you just need to know how to wear it.

Whether you opt for stripes, polka dots, or simply all black with a hint of white or vice versa – here are some guidelines to make the look work for you, together with some stunning looks to inspire you to wear the combination with confidence.

  • Avoid primary colour accessories (eg. red, cobalt blue etc) with black & white patterns, they can give you a very 80’s look!
  • Black and white stripes or polka dots can look amazing on all figures. The trick is to ensure the size of the pattern you’re wearing is in keeping with the size of your frame.
  • When wearing black & white patterns remember to keep accessories to a minimum – allow the pattern to make the statement.
  • If wearing stripes or patterns doesn’t appeal, remember black & white accessories can work beautifully with an all-black or all-white outfit.
