A Black & White Twist

Oh my love of black and white is oh so real. A minimalist’s perfection, the shades are classic and will never, ever go out of style.

I was recently gifted this crisp white blouse by online fashion store Romwe. While I was planning an outfit to go with the blouse, I went against my first thoughts of matching it with a patterned skirt or shorts, and decided to go simple….with a twist.

The blouse is so pretty as it is, so I didn’t want to over-complicate the look. Of course, my love for black and white overcame me, and I went for my black 7/8 skinny Dejour jeans, black Senso pumps, and black Zara studded clutch.

The basics were sorted, but now I had to vamp up the look. So I embraced a new accessory of mine, my New Look choker. I really believe this choker instantly gives this minimal outfit the ‘twist’ factor.

As you know, I love my gold jewellery, so I bejewelled the outfit with gold Forever 21 earrings, a Liberte bangle, and as always, my signature rings.

To give the overall style a straight edge look, I straightened my hair and added four bobby pins on each side, sliding them just above my ears. This hairstyle is so easy to create and it really adds to the outfit’s simplicity.

Are you a B&W lover like me? Do you like how I’ve styled this look, or would you have gone for more of a statement? I’d love to hear your thoughts my fashion lovers!
