If I were to write a cheat sheet for easily putting together fabulous outfits, three combos would be on it. I wrote about my peplum top and pencil skirt “uniform” already as well as my love for dresses.
So what’s the third thing? Black and white, especially prints. You may have noticed that I have black and white polka dots, window pane prints, florals, stripes and abstracts ranging from skirts to dresses and tops.
Why I love black and white
This is the case for two reasons.
- I naturally gravitate towards black and white prints for some unknown reason. Give me three pieces to choose from and you can guess which one I’ll probably like. I tried to fight it at one point since I felt my wardrobe could use some diversity but I’ve all but given up. If I like something in a different colour, of course I’ll buy it but if it’s the black and white that catches my eye, that’s what I’m getting. #doingme
2. Choosing an outfit is simple. This goes back to what I talked about in my post on uniform dressing. Knowing what I have and how it all works together saves me tons of stress. Black and white is the perfect canvas for brightly coloured jackets, belts, shoes and jewellery. It also works with simple silver, gold and pearl accessories for a classy, understated look. What’s not to love?
Let me know which colour combos you go to time and time again.
