Winter 2017 Fashion Trends: Black & White Classic

When is sleek and sophisticated monochrome not on trend? Black and white specially is my favourite combination and put together, the shades always look modern and fresh. Wearing black and white head-to-toe is the easiest formula for a put-together look. Whether you are going for a white dress and black accessories, or a white top with black pants; it is hard to mess up this timeless colour combination. Best yet, there are no needs to worry about coordinating accessories since black and white pretty much go hand in hand with anything.

B&W not only works amazingly well for spring and summer, like I did here, I particularly love the combo for winter. It is an "any season must"! I am a massive lover of anything in black but lately, I've been incorporating some "colour" in my wardrobe and I had to try white more, because yes that is adding colour for me.  The combination of black and white makes a visually stimulating and modern impact in the winter. Used in elegant colour-blocking, displaced stripes and geometric patterns, this classic pairing lends a simple but contemporary finish to the look that I love!

Six pieces make up this look: the white sweater, black leather pants, OTK boots, a strappy bra and handkerchief as accessories, and my beloved Michael Kors handbag. It doesn't take much to create a minimal yet full of detail look if that makes sense. By sticking to only black and white, I am able to add accessories without overdoing it, as well as play with different garment materials. 

Leather pants are a winter staple for me and every time I get the chance I bring them out for a spin. The OTK boots are also a must this winter, they were hot last and they're bigger than ever this year. The white part of the outfit is this gorgeous sweater from Shein with a very low V-neck. At first, I was a little worried about the neckline because my upper body would be too on show, but nothing a handkerchief tied around my neck and a strappy bra (which I've had for months but had never worn before) wouldn't fix. I've always liked the strappy bra trend but had not previously found a way to wear it right, but now I think I did pretty well as it gives the look a sexy vibe without being vulgar. Needless to say, I am in love with this outfit and yes you will probably see me in it again and again this winter, perhaps only varying the accessories. Might even have to add a white coat to my wardrobe because in my opinion, that would have been the cherry on top!

  18. I am in love with this look. And I am a fan of the black and white trend too. It's simple, easy and chic. You look hot. Don't know if I'd be brave enough to pull off the strappy bra, but maybe a top with similar strappy details. I have my eye on one in particular actually.
