3 New ways to wear black and white

- - No comments
Black and white is a classic combo in the fashion world, and when done right it's the perfect balance of effortlessly chic and street-style cool.
There are few looks more chic, stylish and striking than the classic pairing of black and white. The bold contrast is eye-catching and sophisticated, taking minimalism to the maximum. We bring you three fresh ways to rock this universally flattering colour combination.

Play with texture

Textured fabrics will instantly add richness and dimension to your look. You can opt for an outfit with the same texture throughout, or mix fabrics such as boucle with silk or lace and leather. Be experimental to keep things interesting.

Clash Prints

It sounds risky to wear contrasting black and white prints together, but when done correctly it creates a truly standout look. Black-and-white stripes are basically the neutral of prints and can be paired with almost any other black-and-white prints – floral, Aztec ... you name it. That said, stripes and checks are the prints to combine this season.

Accessorise with colour

While black and white is the main theme here, there's certainly no rule against incorporating a pop of colour to your look. Jewellery, belts, bags and shoes in a bold shade will add a fun element to your outfit without compromising the sophistication of the black-and-white combo. Style tip: choose just one colour, such as red.
