Why I Love Wearing Black and White

 Styling Flattering Colors

Black and white are some of my favorite colors to wear. That must be why I have a closet full of these colors! I find the combination of both colors together to be even better like you see here with this zebra print V-neck top.

Black is a slimming color to start with and when you add in horizontal and vertical stripes, it becomes even more slimming. The stripes draw the eye and give a flattering look. No wonder I like this top so much!

Adding a longer black cardigan over a shorter top adds even more to the slimming effect.  A black cardigan is a great go-to piece to have in your closet. 

Black is also a great layering color, especially under a brighter color like this rose print top that also incorporates black and white. Black is as much of a neutral color as white for mixing and matching with other colors.

Black is the perfect color for accessorizing with bold colors like you see in the scarf. The bold colors of the scarf just pop against the solid black dress. 

Of course, the same is true for colors popping against solid white like you see here with the solid white blouse. The blue necklace and bright scarf belt are stand-outs against the neutral white palette. 

And denim and white do look amazing together!

Black is a great color to dress up or down.  Here, I've dressed up a plain black skirt with a ruffled top and some fun sandals. 

And you can do the same thing with dressing up all white like I've done here with a fun belt and some great shoes. 

There are so many ways you can style black and white clothing and accessories either together or separate. Sometimes, you just need a little inspiration. So, I hope I have given you some inspiration to go check out your own closets and see how you might style some black and white of your own! Have fun and be sure to let me know what you find in the comments. I love hearing from you!

Until Next Time,

I enjoyed seeing all the different combinations with black and white in your post. I also like those two colors in clothing since they can be paired with so many other colors just as you have shown.

All your combinations look good but I LOVE the black & white top in the first picture. That would go with everything!
Grace & Peace, Iris

I like how you have used black and white to style these outfits. I think perhaps my favourites are the ones featuring the black and white Zebra print top. Once again Debbie, you have inspired me to be more creative with my own wardrobe!

All of these outfits look great. My favourite would probably be the first one with the Zebra print top!

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments. I think the black and white zebra striped top is the winner!

That first top is very attractive - I love the shape of the neck line.
