Whatever your fashion style. Whether you consider yourself to be queen of boho-chic or president of sport luxe, the combination of black and white is too enticing to resist. The versatility of monochrome means you can choose any item of clothing and it immediately works.
These Black and white trousers from River Island are super comfy and easy to wear. They are not tight on the leg but the bold, almost tribal print adds serious edge to this relaxed style.
I love this Bardot style crop top which adds a touch of femininity to contrast with the sharp, masculine pattern on the trousers. There is something about off-the-shoulder sleeves that really makes an outfit more wow for me. Bare shoulders allows you to reveal a bit of skin in a subtle and chic way, making it the ideal summer style.
If floaty crop tops aren’t your thing, just pop on a simple loose t-shirt and finish with a pair of monochrome slip-on shoes to make this outfit perfect for any day out. These plimsols are SO comfortable, that you can show off your outfit for miles and not be desperate to get home and put your feet up!
Better yet, try taking black and white to the next level by including hues of grey and a pop of brightness. Swap the patterned trousers for classic black skinny jeans, and add texture on top by layering a striped shirt over a white camisole. A bright clutch adds a welcome injection of colour and a touch of personality.

For me, connecting my makeup with any outfit is important, and really ties the whole look together. I like to pair this with simple eye makeup and a bright lipstick as shown in Black, White and Pop, to emphasise the contrasting colours.
