It is almost inevitable for me not to wear black and white (minimalism). If I don’t wear them formally, I wear them casually. I know I’m not the only one, can I get a witness 🙂
Black and white can however be bland like food without salt. I have figured out how to “spice up” or dress up my black and white and today I will share those TIPS & TRICKS with you. Now, let’s have a look……
1, GO SHEER
Full details : sheer skirt & crop top
Sheer detail can be “sexy” and “romantic”. For me I do sheerness in moderation. Like the look above, my skirt is maxi but sheer. It shows off my long legs nicely while still covering them up.
Going sheer is one way to add fun to your black and white.
2, MIX DIFFERENT TEXTURES
Full details : Sequin blazer & Disco Pants
To chic up your black and white (monochrome), mix different textures. For this look, I mixed Sequin blazer with satin pants. I also added a tie style scarf and the little pom pom detail on the heels made the look detailed and chic.
3, ADD A POP OF COLOUR
I have always said that your pop of colour on your black and white doesn’t have to be red. You can use any solid colours.
Think outside of the box and make your look pop with any solid colours you fancy.
4, MIX PATTERNS
Mixing two different patterns is another fun way to wear your black and white. For this very look, I mixed stripes and rose detailed skirt, both pieces are fully black and white.
For icing on the cake, I added a colourful blazer which is simply double the fun in making your black and white dressy and chic.

5, ADD DETAILS
Details like unexpected over sized bow on a look adds a chic factor to your black and white. I particularly love the one on the neck of my blouse above. It was improvised though. It is a simple tie neck blouse that I made into a bow by twisting it around my neck a few times.
Another chic way of making your black and white dressy or chic is the lace detail of that blouse. Not only does it look nice and adds a nice accent to the look, it made my waist look accentuated and slimmer.
You can read my article on how to make your waist look slimmer without a belt. You will like it.
An exaggerated detail on the hem of a skirt can also make your black and white chic.
Details is everything !
Accessorising is another great way to make your black and white look dressed up and chic. Add statement necklaces, bracelets, shoes etc to your own look. Have fun in your pairings and your creations.
These are a few ways to make your black and white outfits (monochrome) look dressed up. Think outside of the box and have fun pairing your black and white. What is life without some fun anyways?
So what do you say to all my suggestions? Are they game or lame and which is your favourite? Would love to hear from you please.
I want to thank you so much for stopping by today. I am always very happy to see you stop by.
Wishing you a fantastic day today. Have a great weekend ahead.
Much Love, Mojisola.
