I’m going to talk about black and white outfit combinations in this article.
I’m going to create some black and white prints and solid pieces and various ways to wear them.
A great outfit combo is black and white since it goes well with classic clothing. Black and white complement the great colors that are popular this season, and you probably already have some of it in your closet.
If you want to add a bright color bag, jewelry, or any other kind of accessory, that’s awesome too, and it looks great with black and white. This will appeal to you if you enjoy neutral colors.
I realize the contrast between black and white is stark, but they are your neutrals this season. Instead of wearing a lot of neutral colors like we have in the past, people won’t be wearing a lot of brown and beige clothing.
This is a fantastic new method for adding unique combinations to your outfits.
Tips for Body Shape
I want to address a couple of things about this before I start talking about various outfits.
The contrast between the colors is pretty strong when working in black and white.
Depending on your body form, you might want to put the white on top and the black on the bottom if you want to draw attention to the top portion of your body.
However, you should wear white on the bottom and black on top if you want to draw more attention to the lower half of your body.
While certain things can be hidden by prints, they can draw attention to themselves. So think about how you do your prints.
Apply this to some of the other color options in your wardrobe that you like to wear.
It’s acceptable if dresses with all-over prints don’t appeal to you. I’m going to talk a variety of top and bottom options.
The first outfit is a shift dress, which we will examine in two distinct ways.
If you have a rectangle body type with few curves, this dress will look great on you.
This caught my eye since I adore the geometric pattern. It’s pretty cool, not something that is always available, and on-trend for the current season.
This was paired with a pink handbag, a white handbag, white earrings, and white shoes to further make them put out. This would be a great way to add a pop of color to anything like this because the great pink goes well with black and white.
Another bag to wear this dress is with black shoes, orange accessories, and black bags. With the exception of the orange bag, it doesn’t stand out as much and blends a little more.
It’s not necessary to add a pop of color to your handbag; you may simply choose a black or white bag to go all-black and-white.
This maxi-length button-down shirt dress is a great alternative.
If you want to cinch your waist and are a little bit curvier, it would be great.
There is also this awesome Anthropologie variation.
This is incredibly pretty and would fit a few different body types, and I love the huge, bold print on it.
The following outfit is a relaxed slip dress style. I love a good slip dress, and I love dressing it down.
If you don’t like the slip dress, pick a black dress that genuinely flatters your body form and that you will wear. I chose the black dress since it is a great, multipurpose staple for your closet.
If you discover the ideal look that can be worn little more casually, you could wear a white denim jacket over it and your favorite black sneakers, if you have any; if not, you could wear an all-white pair instead.
Since a metal color would go nicely with this, I added some silver hoops. Since your golds and silvers are very neutral, adding them to your black and white outfits would still look good.
For those who adore white jeans, the next two looks are for you. I wore two distinct kind of jeans.
I chose with a tweed jacket for the first style, which is often more appropriate for spring and summer.
So all I’m wearing is a fitted, white tweed jacket over a black body suit. It doesn’t have to be a body suit, but wearing something slightly fitted underneath can prevent you from fiddling with it and simply looks nicer.
Flare jeans are what the white ones are. For all body types, this is great. Just recently, I added a black bag and a pair of black heels because heels go perfect with flare jeans.
I would probably choose a different style of jean if you don’t love heels, such as a slim bootcut or a straight leg if you want to wear flats. However, I particularly enjoy wearing flares with heels or even a stacked wedge.
If you’re shorter and want to somewhat lengthen your lower half, you could also go with white; having the same color from your waist to your toes makes this happen.
The next outfit is very simple, and I’ll talk two options. One wearing white shoes, one wearing black shoes.
At this point, I added a chic white trench coat to a black and white top with a simple print.
It has no buttons, is quite attractive, and I wore it with a pair of skinny jeans. I just put a black espadrille with these slim, straight-leg jeans that reach the ankle. Then a white handbag follows.
The next alternative is to wear the same outfit with a white shoe, which creates a completely polished appearance from top to bottom.
If you love white, you’ll love this.
The next outfit is just black and white and is ideal for running around town, being really casual, yet still being on trend and really cute.
This outfit is perfect for you if you love wearing leggings.
All I did was put a pair of leggings with a large white button-down top.
The leggings with pockets are my favourite because of how useful they are.
I added some white sneakers, but you could also use black ones. A fun black pendant necklace and a black hobo bag are all that’s left.
You’re dressed in a really simple yet fashionable outfit.
This tunic-length white button-down is really cool; it cinches at the waist but yet has that slightly baggy bit. There is a tiny peplum hem on it.
This is a pretty great alternative, especially if you’re over 40, prefer a more classic bit, and want something that will last a little while in your closet.
This kind of outfit never goes out of style, and I love all of these things.
For both work and play, this outfit is perfect. It’s something you could wear out at night and still look nice, or it might be a little more formal.
It is styled with a tweed jacket, however this one is cropped and a little bit more fitted. I put a white bodysuit over it this time so that you would look all white on top.
Then, the pants have a tapered leg. More people are wearing tapered pants, and when done right, they may be really flattering. This leg appears to be straighter, but it does taper at the bottom. It also has the paper bag waist in the tie, which looks incredibly straight on a lot of people.
Black heels and black earrings were added after that. It’s acceptable to wear silver or gold earrings.
This is a great outfit that you may wear for both work and play.
The final outfit includes a blazer since white blazers are awesome in the spring and summer. A blazer and skirt are also part of this outfit.
I just made a skirt with a black and white print. This a-line skirt is incredibly simple to wear on most body types.
Because I thought this was so pretty, I did pair it with a white lace cami. It would look extremely pretty if you were brave enough to wear something similar with a blazer over it.
Then I added a pair of black earrings to bring the black back up, along with a pair of black woven sandals.
A white blazer done this way is entertaining. If you wanted a pop of black, you could also wear a white blazer with white jeans and a black belt. White shoes or black shoes are both options.
