Why struggle with what to wear when sometimes a simple black and white outfit is best? It’s simple and easy and is a classic pairing that will never go out of style. Forget the colors of the year and what’s trending, a black and white outfit can take you anywhere.
I wore this Friday night and we snapped these pictures as we were heading out the door. No muss, no fuss just easy, elegant and chic. What is muss anyway? Anyone know? You probably have similar pieces in your wardrobe right now to throw together a black and white outfit.
Breaking Down the Outfit
Rather than wearing a belt, I got all fancy with a hack I’ve seen on IG and Tik Tok. To get that tied at the waist look – simply loop the shirt through your belt loops. Very easy to do. Why do it? Well, for me it means my short won’t ride up and expose my flesh. On top of that it gives me a better proportion. I shared it on my IG story Friday afternoon. Please follow me over there, I talk a lot about my life and little tid bits that I don’t share here.
I bought this white shirt in a size large at Target. I strongly believe we need several white shirts in a range of sizes and shapes. The white shirt is a wardrobe staple and can be used in so many ways which is why you have to have more than one. Keep things fresh by replacing your white shirt when it’s stained or yellowed.
Now some will say a black and white outfit is boring but that isn’t so when you accessorize. A statement necklace, some bracelets, and two tone cap toe pump adds so much interest. Honestly those pieces take a basic white button up and black pants to the next level.
These black pants were such a steal from Loft. They are an online only purchase and run TTS. They have very limited sizes left but I’ve found similar styles for you. A basic black pant will work just as well as these coated denim ones I’m wearing.
So the next time you’re pondering the decision of what to wear think basic but fabulous. A black and white outfit will not steer you wrong. Classic, elegant, and chic – add the accessories that speak to you!
