Stylish Black and White Women Wear

There are different ways that women can create a classic look by wearing a classy black and white fashion clothing. Women can wear black and white for any occasion and during any season.

You can wear this combination as a daytime dress, a casual outfit as well as for formal occasion. It does not matter how you combine these colors, they are timeless and you will always have endless variations for a perfect fashion color style that works.

You can create a simple classic but glamorous black and white wardrobe that you can wear for years and years to come. You can wear a beautiful textured black cardigan that you can team up with a plain white top and a straight black skirt that has white pattern layer.

Different Ways To Wear Black and White Clothing

You can create a designer's look by combining opposite separates for the top and skirt. Wear a white shirt or top that has a black print on it and a black skirt with white print.

Trim White or Black Garment With Braid

Create this crisp look by adding black braid to your white dress or add white braid to a black dress. It depends on what look and style that you want to achieve. You can trim your white top or dress with black black braid or the other way round.

Some braids do fray, so you will need to choose the braid that you will be able to stitch on your garment. You can hand sew the braid to the front, pocket, sleeves, collars or lower part of the skirt. You can stitch the braid with matching sewing thread.

40's and 60's Black White Dotty Top With White Skirt

Choose a polka dot size that is best for your height and size. You can choose bold dotty print, mini dotty prints or a coin sized dotty clothing top. To create a classic look, you can wear this dotty top with a white skirt or a white top on a dotty skirt just to test your fashion style.

Wear Black and White With Right Accessories

You should know that not all black and white fabric match each other. You can check how these fabrics match by standing in a natural light to feel the texture and design. You can change a casual black and white wear into a special occasion look by wearing a fake pearl with a white brocade bolero on a black frock. You can also use a black checked women handbag and tying a leopard print scarf to create a stylish fashion wear.

Black and White Stripes and Check Clothing

Choose a black and white checked fashion clothing to create your own elegant figure. When you combine black and white, you create a slimming figure effect. Wear a solid black for trousers or skirt to make your heavy hips appear slimmer. To reduce a large bust, wear a black top.

      Thank you CyberShelley for dropping in and leaving a comment. As you wrote, it is true that black and white never dates, so they are never out of fashion.
