MOMMA LOVES… black and white clothes


There’s nothing quite as classic and timeless as black and white clothing, which is probably why it’s always been a staple among the fashion set.

When I was 12 I stopped wearing color – I decided I would only wear black and white clothes going forward…  And that lasted for a good number of years and was perhaps the moment, looking back, that my fashion future began.  Of course, now I know far more (sort of) than I did then – and while black and white clothes will always look crisp, sleek and appropriate, I also know that they are the perfect palette for everything I want to add to my look.  There’s a good reason this stark palette is the basis of pretty much every fashionista’s wardrobe. This post is focusing on black and white clothes – color (or lack of color) blocked – the yin and yang, the black and white cookie – the most graphic combination.  Having these black and white pieces allow you to easily build your chic look from there.  Whether you want to pair it with denim, keep the look monochromatic, add a touch of sparkle, or pop your look with a bold color – these are the foundation items for your closet.  Check out some of my favorite black and white clothes and figure out which (of the many) ways you want to style them!
