An Exciting Spin On A Black And White Outfit

melodiestewart.com, black and white street style, Top Atlanta blogger

There is nothing more stylish than a black and white outfit, I can’t say this enough. These two colors together pack a mighty punch and can be bold and simple at the same time. And is hands down the easiest color combo to wear - ever! Each year Pantone declares the color of the year and while I love wearing colors, black and white will always be my two colors of the year.

My obsession with this monochrome color combo will probably never end. Which is why I’m always looking for ways to keep my black and white looks from being bland and boring. Like I said, black and white paired together is super easy and the different ways to style these two colors are endless.

Although I’ve worn this pleated skirt before, this time around I dialed it up a notch by adding a little texture. This textured tri-colored pleated skirt is dope by itself, but since I can be extra from time-to-time I opted to go for a black and white polka dot shirt instead of plain black or white. I played with the idea of wearing a polka dot blazer, but went with a solid black blazer instead.

To complete the look, I wore a pair of foiled silver metallic loafers and black dotted tights. My accessories included a little box handbag along with a pair of red thin retro cat-eye sunglasses on trend right now (btw, when they first hit the scene I hated them and said I’d never buy a pair. Moral of the story, never say never!)

As always, I hope this look inspires you to step out of the box and try new ways to style your black and white clothes. Even though you might not have these exact items in your closet, you can still find interesting ways to create stylish black and white looks.

The Easiest Way To Make A Black & White Outfit POP!

The Easiest Way To Style A Black & White Outfit

Ever since 2018 hit, I feel like I've been on a giant roller coaster.  Within these last 2ish months, things have been up and down.  But that's life, right?  Anyways, I'm going to keep on keeping on and so should you.

One of my FAVORITE color combo's of all time is black and white.  What is not to like about these two colors together.  I mean it goes hand in hand like peanut butter & jelly,  mac & cheese or milk & cookies.  Basically you can't go wrong when styling an outfit that's purely black and white.  There's nothing chicer—or easier.

I am totally and utterly in love with this Asos metallic pleated midi skirt that features 3 different colors and textures.  I mean come on, what's not to like!!!  So for this look, I decided to go all black up top.  Wanting the skirt to be the focal point of the look.  My blazer (which you should have in your closet already, it's a closet staple) is thrifted, however, this black blazer from Forever 21 or this black one from Asos gets a thumbs up from me.

Black and white combined is classic and will never go out of style, NEVER!  It can get you (style wise) through any event on your calendar.  This color duo can pretty much match up with anything you put with it.  Most people would pair this look with a black shoe, however, I opted for these fuchsia pink sock booties from JustFab.  By adding a pop of color, it instantly added a little more life to this outfit.  I choose my shoes as the burst of color, but a cute colorful handbag, a dope statement necklace or a piece of your outfit can be your pop.  Another example of how I added a bright color to a look; remember these red boots?

Because the skirt is doing the most, I went with a plain black blouse and accessorized by adding this metallic silver mini backpack.  Speaking of this pleated skirt, you'd better hurry, most of the sizes are gone and it's on sale for less than $50.  

Are you a fan of the black and white trend?  If so, how do you typically style it?  Tell me in the comments

Bright Colors In Fall

Hi Stylenista's

My weekend was full of fun and fashion.  Saturday I volunteered at the Thrifting Atlanta Fashion Swap.  I enjoyed working behind the scenes with a few of my thriftsisters.

My look for this event was inspired by a pair of oh so fab color block/mixed print shoes.  When I saw these shoes I wasted no time placing my order.  When they came, I knew that I needed to wear them before the weather cooled down.  My headwrap was a result of me running behind and not having enough time to wrap it the way I meant to.  This wrap style was completely unintentional, but oh I killed it (in my Lil Terio voice).

Outfit Details
Top - Park Ave Thrift - $3.00
DIY Jeans - St. Vincent de Paul - $5.00
Headwrap (scarf) - H&M - $6.90
Shoes - Makemechic - $31.00
