Style Tips: 7 Ways To Break The Standard Of Your Black And Whites




For the girl who can’t stray away from the classic allure of blacks, whites, and greys, let this be a PSA that wearing the colors of monochrome can now be elevated further. We understand the ease when matching these hues in the morning, but choosing great silhouettes and textures in these colors automatically gives a sophistication unlike any other.
Tune into your inner Dark Sensuality with the newest collection by H&M. Take your casual basic tones up a notch by breaking the standards with the 7 OOTDs below!

Cropped Corset


Make a white polo fun and flattering by using a corset bondage detail as an accessory. Keep the look professional and office-appropriate with fitted trousers and pointed slingbacks for added sexiness. Heading out after work? Take with you a reversible clutch bag that stores your things from day to night.

Velvet Basics


Girls who kick it up a notch don’t settle for a basic tank top. Amp up the textures in your OOTD by mixing velvet in your top and work with the 90s velvet revival. Keep the fun going until your bottoms with gray trousers with a cinched bowtie that gives shape around your waist. Match black-on-black with trendy mules and a gold-chained sling bag.

Girl Band


We all know you had an all-girl band you loved growing up. Reincarnate your favorite Spice Girl by opting for a black patent skirt you dreamt about as a kid. Tuck in a vintage white tee and a pair of floral slides to fuse the best of the 90s and of 2017!

Collared Casual


Make a statement with a revamped white polo for a casual day out. Choose a top with constructed sleeves and detailed collars for when you want to give life to your usual button-down. Pair it with low-rise jeans with ripped detail.

Sweater Weather


What’s the meaning of fall without the rise of sweaters! Put together a knit sweater with a leather skirt. The catch? Keep it all in the same gradient of your choice in the monochrome for a mix of shapes and textures all in the same hue. Another reason to love the cold season is for the accessories; slip on some boots and a wool hat for added details on your fall-ready OOTD.

Junior Jewels


For those nights out when you’re itching to wear your usual (LBD all the way?) opt to change up your ensemble for a more sparkly approach. Opt for a sequined mini dress that shapes your torso well; pair it with comfy heeled slides, trendy hoop earrings, and a small-sized clutch.

Guns and Roses


Look to the Brits for inspiration when trying on patterned trousers. Add a plain white tee with rose patchwork for a classic rock-inspired ensemble. Throw in a splash of color with red trendy mules with gold buckle accents.
