Bright hues may be all the rage every summer, but it’s almost impossible not to reach for your go-to black and white pieces–especially when half of your wardrobe is made up of the monochrome shade. If you’re not the color-loving type of girl, it’s totally fine! Dark or neutral shades seem to be the last choice for an eye-catching summer look, but with the right mix of playful silhouettes and fabrics, your black and white outfit can be just as exciting as your colorful frocks in no time!
1. Show some skin.
Embrace skin-bearing outfits–it’s the quick trick to make any monochrome outfit look summer-ready. Instead of wearing an ordinary black top, switch it up with a sheer blouse that shows just the right amount of skin–creating an edgy and sexy vibe. But if you’re more into feminine pieces, an off-shoulder top is the way to go! Wear it with striped trousers to give it an extra oomph.
2. Go for summer-inspired details in monochrome.
Quirky, playful details like ruffles will offset a serious black hue. And like rule number 1 above, Kathryn‘s cropped co-ords made the black outfit a lot more exciting.
3. Don’t be afraid to go crazy on the prints.
If you’re going for a non-boring black and white ensemble, adding a dash of quirk is necessary. Try this print-on-print combo on Heart Evangelista–pair a basic graphic tee with a floral midi-skirt to standout in your OOTDs.
