Black and White Outfit Ideas
How do you feel about wearing color and prints? If you’re a subscriber, you probably know how much I love to wear bright, bold colors (especially pink). But I know that many of you prefer to stick to more neutral color palettes. If you’ve been craving some new style inspiration in your favorite neutral, black, and white hues, this post is for you! I’m sharing SIX new outfits that are all black and white, but are anything but boring…
If you’re looking for more spring/summer basics, make sure you check out our capsule wardrobe here.
#1) Black & White Work Outfit
How cool are these Me+Em houndstooth pants?! If you work in an office, these are such a fun addition to your workwear collection. I love how billowy and wide-legged these pants are and the racing stripe down the side adds a touch of edginess. I kept it more casual on top with a black V-neck tee, but you could wear a blouse or shell for the office. Then I threw on a classic black blazer for some polish and sophistication. When you wear something so voluminous on your bottom half, you want to keep it more streamlined on top. On my feet, I’m wearing a pair of black combat boots, but you could wear pumps or heels too.
#2) Black & White Dinner Outfit
If you’re looking for a super versatile dress you can wear all spring/summer, this black and white striped Tory Burch maxi dress is a super chic option! It has a tiered skirt, ruffle details, and an elastic band at the top so it actually stays put. I love that you could wear this with a denim jacket and sandals for a casual lunch or with booties and a blazer for dinner. I styled it with my classic Balmain blazer I’ve had for a few years and LOVE. On my feet, I’m wearing combat boots by See by Chloe that add a little more edge to the look, but you could swap them for strappy sandals or pumps to dress it up more. To finish off the look I have on some classic gold hoop earrings, large Gucci sunglasses, and a black Chanel bag.
#3) All White Outfit
This one is for all of you who love a monochromatic look! For spring especially, I love to go with an all-white outfit instead of all-black. So, in this look, I’m wearing a beautiful white Maje knit tweed jacket and some wide-leg pants. I love the spread collar, contrasting black and white colors, luxe gold buttons, and the lovely fit. These pants have super wide legs and luxe buttons starting from the knee down to the ankle. The gold buttons make the pants a basic with a twist. And I love that they’re trousers that fit more like jeans. I completed the look with the same Chanel bag, a white beret, and Dior slingbacks.
#4) Black & White Date Night Outfit
Next up is a date night outfit that’s so chic. I took the same tweed Maje jacket from the last look and paired it with some black leather pants. But you could swap them for some black jeans or tapered trousers depending on your style. I added some chic Dior slingbacks, sunglasses, my black Chanel bag, and a fun beret. If I were wearing this in the U.S. and going out for date night, I might leave the beret at home…but I loved it for Paris! 😉
#5) Black & White Versatile Outfit
This Maje jumpsuit is SO versatile…you can dress it down for running errands or a casual lunch, or dress it up for dinner or the office. It has a flattering v-neckline and cinch waist, silky luxe fabric, and it’s SO comfortable! I styled it with a wide Dior belt to really cinch the waist and some black and white statement booties by Balmain. It has a straight leg so you could wear it with sneakers or sandals too if you wanted to make it more casual.
#6) Black & White Business Casual Outfit
This is a really fun outfit with just a touch of sexiness. I could definitely see myself wearing this to dinner or on date night. I’m wearing the same Balmain blazer from look #2…I love how the elevated gold buttons and structured, polished, sleek look makes a pair of jeans look SO elevated. Under the blazer, I’m wearing a white ruffled button-down from Banana Republic that’s the perfect elevated basic for spring. Next, I’m wearing a pair of dark-wash skinny jeans under the sexiest pair of boots I own…these Stuart Weitzman boots are leather, thigh-high, have a stiletto heel, and are SO sexy. I completed the look with some chic Loewe sunglasses, a black Chanel bag, and classic gold hoop earrings.
