Black and white all over can look modern and cool if you get it right …
There’s something dramatic about black and white, whether vertical stripes, geometric shapes or abstract prints, in particular if worn in broad daylight. The look is modern and cool if you get it right. How to wear it? Like a zebra, you must be black and white all over. Choose a bold monogram coat or pinstripe suit jacket and wear with black trews and tee, or layer a white or black and white stripe shirt under a black dress. Or try out the trend without going top-to-toe, opting for a graphic bag. Choose statement jewellery and accessories in black or white as Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing did here with his XL bagel-shaped earrings. Overcooked? Maybe, but anything too tiny will just get lost.
