Black and White. It's the other color story. For more ways to wear this tried and true classic, (and how not to wear black) keep reading.
Grab your black bermuda shorts and pair with a white blouse or tee. Add a metallic wedge and voila - summer! Next Fall, pair your black bermudas with camel, grey or go all black, but those looks are too heavy for Spring and Summer.
Ahhhh, now that feels more like us, doesn't it? Column of black with a white blazer. And a grey wedge. Perfect.
Ok, so the jazz shoes circa 1986 are really not part of the '80's train I want to ride. But I love the scalloped white shorts.
The white skirt is getting a tad short for me, but the long sleeve black tee balances out the skin to clothing ratio. But, whoops, I see an ankle strap.
A look from Ann Taylor. Kind of Chanel-ish.
Let's talk about how not to wear black.
If you know me, you know I do not like primary colors with black. Oh nooo. It's a bit, shall we say, inelegant. Take a look:
See? Yellow with black looks kind of like a bumble bee.
Pink with black. It's just too cutesy. Do you want to be cute like a little girl?
And again. Pink with black. Looks like a chocolate cupcake with pink icing.
It's becoming clearer isn't it? Black with primary colors is just too harsh.
White is just so much softer with primary colors than black is...now do you agree?
But back to black and white...what a great combo for Spring and Summer!
