Black and white have a number of determined associations. Black is known for being serious, mournful, and solemn. In fashion black is slimming and used to create clean lines. White on the flip side represents purity, light heartedness, and cleanliness. Together these colors work to associate a clean uniform for either a servent or the polished look of a tuxedo, both of which are formal and tailored.
When including black and white in your wardrobe here are a few useful tips…
- The most flattering application is white on top and black on bottom.
- Add flare to the traditional black and white outfit by placing two different bold patterns adjacent to one another. For example, polka dots and herringbone.
