How To Wear Black And White Without Looking Basic

You’ve probably heard many times that black and white is such a classic pair in terms of timeless fashion pieces, you can never go wrong with black and white clothing. When in doubt, wear red, black and white, etcetera. And it’s so true, I can’t deny that black and white is a versatile combo that could be worn during any season through the year. But how do you style this combination without looking boring or like you are heading to work at the restaurant ready to serve the tables, especially if you chose a white top with black bottoms. So my purpose with this post is to give you some options to basically take your black and white combo to the next level by wearing it in a stylish way. Are you ready? 

LOOK FOR STATEMENT PIECES:

A statement piece, wearing it either on top or bottom will be the key element to add visual interest to your black and white outfits. By adding an eye-catching piece, you will instantly spice up your combo. So look for unique designs with fun cuts, cool elements such as pattern or texture, play with different lengths and proportions, instead of wearing basic pieces.

WEAR A WHITE AND BLACK OUTFIT WITH A POP OF COLOR:

It’s very easy to take black and white outfits to the next level by simply adding a touch of color. It could be either with your shoes, bag, or accessories such as a scarf, sunglasses, belt, etcetera. So consider complementing the look with a colorful item and you will see how your outfit pops!

MONOCHROMATIC LOOK:

Pick either black or white clothing and wear this color in the majority of your outfit. For example, wear black and add a hint of white or vice versa. That’s a good way to show your sense of style and a more creative way to rock the black and white pairing because this simple action makes your look more stylish and chic.

So if you were thinking that black and white clothing is kind of boring, you are wrong, it would depend on the way you style your pieces. Here are some more ideas to inspire your next black and white look.

¿Cómo llevar el blanco y negro sin lucir un look muy básico?

Seguramente habrás escuchado en multiples ocasiones que con la combinación en blanco y negro no hay pierde, que cuando tengas duda viste o de rojo, de negro o de blanco con negro, etc, etc.. No puedo negar que en términos de moda esta combinación es un clásico sumamente versátil y lo mas importante es que no pasa de moda por lo que puedes lucir esta combinación a lo largo del año. Pero la cuestión es ¿como llevarla sin lucir simple o con un look aburrido? ¿Pensaran que voy en camino a trabajar en un restaurante lista para servir las mesas? ( sobre todo si tu elección fue una camisa blanca y negro en la parte de abajo? Bueno, pues mi intención con este post es darte algunas ideas de como puedes llevar tu look en estos dos tonos a otro nivel, ¿estas lista?

BUSCA PRENDAS ORIGINALES 

Una prenda única u original, statement piece, en la parte superior o posterior es el elemento clave para añadir interés visual a cualquier conjunto conformado por prendas en blanco y el negro. Notarás como al incorporar piezas llamativas le darás esa chispa a tu look. Elige diseños con cortes originales, detalles divertidos como texturas, estampados y juega con diferentes largos y proporciones en lugar de vestir con piezas muy clásicas de pies a cabeza.

VISTE EN BLANCO Y NEGRO CON UN TOQUE DE COLOR

Esta es una de las maneras mas fáciles y efectivas de realzar tu vestimenta en blanco y negro. Con el simple hecho de incorporar un toque de color transportarás tu conjunto de simple a wow! Puedes elegir zapatos de color, en especial el rojo o vino, me encantan. Puede ser tu bolsa, accesorios como una mascada, lentes, cinturón , etcetera.

LOOK MONOCROMÁTICO

Elige blanco o negro y llévalo en la mayor parte de tu vestimenta. Por ejemplo viste toda de negro y agrega un toque en blanco y viceversa. Es una manera creativa que mostrará tu estilo al llevar el look en blanco y negro de una manera chic.

Como puedes ver existen miles de maneras de crear looks en blanco y negro que luzcan lindos y con estilo. Es por eso que amo esta combinación a la cual se le puede sacar provecho y llevar en cualquier época del año. Así que si te negabas a vestir con esta combinación por considerarla aburrida o muy básica, es momento de intentarlo. Aquí te dejo otras ideas para inspirar tus look.
