I’ve always been a huge fan of black and white. It seems to be trending these days more so than usual — which is just fine with me! More to choose from!

Is there anything easier to wear than black and white? It always looks timeless, crisp and translates into everything from ballgowns to shorts.

This super-sexy monochromatic look is easy to achieve with existing pieces in your wardrobe, like a black pencil skirt or a white shirt.  Just invest in one or two items to add some edge to your wardrobe and you’ll be spot on – think a chic hounds tooth jacket, a striped shirt or an elegant evening dress.

Keep your silhouette sharp by choosing pieces with clean, simple lines.

A striped shirt paired with black or white tailored trousers will create an elegant look.

Pair with statement gold or silver jewellery –like chandelier earrings or a cuff – to add some shine to your outfit.

If you go for a black and white pattern (hounds tooth, stripes or paisley) then keep the rest of your outfit simple and one colour. 

Take a fashion risk and throw on a pair of black and white striped pants the next time you go out.   

Black and white style is timeless and transcends all trends.  What’s your take on black and white?
