Barbara & Karen are right on trend with fabulous black and white combinations in Virtual Styling #136. There is a dash of color, but really just a dash. This is pure devotion to iconic black and white, pure, splendid, reliable, elegant, sophisticated –but not always predictable – black and white.
This season’s best looks pair bold graphic prints with plaids, herringbone or houndstooth designs. It’s always a great idea to play with texture when you’re layering black over black…that way an exact match isn’t necessary. Pop a chunky black sweater over a slick pleather pant and you have instant glam. Play with scale - like an oversized vest with a tailored shirt for a twist on a classic look.
Who doesn’t love the monochromatic look of black and white? The contrast is always crisp and the look is just classic. Why do we love it so much? Because it’s easy to figure out a shoe, it’s easy to add an accent of color, it’s easy to accessorize, and best of all, black is universally slimming! Season in and season out, it’s the go-to color combo.
