These insanely stylish black and white street style outfits prove that through time the best style is often the simplest! From memorable Italians at Cannes, then, like Monica Vitti in 1966 to Chiara Mastroianni, now black and white trumps multicolor chic every time!
As Karl Lagerfeld once said, “black and white always looks modern, whatever that word means.”
Find inspiration in unforgettable moments at Cannes and subtle day-to-day attire, all black and white head-to-toe. Black and white dresses as well as off-duty monochrome combos of jeans and button-down shirting are timeless.
No doubt it is the easiest formula for a put-together look. Whether it’s a white dress with black accessories, or a white blouse paired with this season’s must-have mini flare black jeans it’s hard to mess up this timeless color combination.
Dressing for a stroll around town in the understated pairing of a black and white checked shirt, cropped denim, and flat sandals is a perfect easy take on spring effortless style.
Get inspired from the perfection of a high contrast look and rethink your casual and evening wardrobe. This is the ultimate all time classic fashion trend… that never goes out of fashion…
