There’s no such thing as a golden rule of wearing black and white, but you if you want to finally reach your fashion goals, the match of monochromes is one of the most versatile to pull off, allowing you to play with volumes, designs, textures, masculinity & femininity for any type of style you feel close to. That’s why we have selected some of the most inspirational black and white outfits from streetwear attire as well as elegant night looks and daytime OOTDs bests.

Daytime OOTDs bests coming up in 2019

It’s a blend of minimalistic and retro the black and white outfit made of white high waist flared pants and black vest. The accessories are kept simple yet very much on point in flavouring the ensemble with a touch of vintage masculinity, as per the thin braces.

A total white outfit is the perfect summertime choice: whether in the shape of pure white cotton, filled with embroideries, maxi dresses and spaghetti straps or the cutest strapless mini dress to wear even from when the sun sets. The intricate embroideries and the waist ribbons are the feminine touches to match with the solid elements as in the lace up combat boots to recreate a rock romantic vibe.

Fall Winter Daytime OOTDs

Statement. In one word the essence of Valentino’s black and white outfits for this fall/winter: an oversized white flower is the subject of a long sleeve dress and pants combo.

This coat. This coat is the real deal. It has everything and more you always wanted: tailoring that creates a perfect silhouette, movement and the most inventive way of incorporating black and white into an outfit. Alexander McQueen was inspired by the graphic markings of the Goliath beetle when sapiently placing the spots of black on this velvet jacquard coat, creating a visual effect no other animal print is able to.

Evening black and white outfits

Oversized pansies are the strong yet feminine element to this cape dress, an evening look in black and white that definitely has an extra gear. The inspo you can get from this is to opt for black and white original prints even for a night time occasion or even to master the ultimate elegant party outfit.

Alexander McQueen’s take on a black and white evening dress is a combination of different textures: an ivory engineered floral cotton corset dress with black lace and and jey appliqué embroidery shows not only you can uplift your wardrobe from plain fabrics, but you actually have to learn that layering soft and shiny as well as different type of black and white embellishments is how to wear the two monochromes this season.

Black and white streetwear

It’s called sporty chic and Off White are champions in that: if it comes easy for them to create fabulous black and white outfits as it is in their motto, we must not take for granted the ‘camp’ ideas behind some of their most iconic pieces, starting from these ‘for walking’ white heels.
