It's All Black and White


There’s something so classic about black and white and even better when there’s a little bit of gold thrown into the picture. These are several items that could easily be transitional pieces for the post-winter/spring welcoming season, as many of us are still having cold breezes and wind chills.

Jackets are probably one of the most items that I have in my closet, aside from blazers and scarves. They get the most wear in my wardrobe, because of their versatility. I love moto-styles and cropped jackets.

A good classic patterned coat like houndstooth is always a great bold piece to work into your wardrobe. With a simple contrast like black and white it makes painting your fashion canvas pretty diverse … graphically. It’s also quite easy to style: choose vibrant colours or traditional red to pair with it and you’re already thinking smart.

  1. I know! I'm so sure black and white will never go out of style...

    Have a great week,

  2. I love b&w, I think when I need to relax or clear my head, I wear black and white and it tends to help. I love B&W stripes on anything as well, you can always leave it as it is or add dashes of colour and it all works perfectly.Gorgeous examples!! Happy Wednesday doll xx

  3. Great stuff and white is an evergreen combo...:-)

    I do like black and white together! the quarry tiles in our kitchen are and everyone admires them - nothing to do with us though, they've been there centuries! x

    black and White is my favourite combination for clothes ever, at home I prefer red and vitaminic colors. ciao

  6. lamodalena26 March

    black and white - I love it :)

  7. Hi Madison, Im always a fan of classic tones, B&W are an everygreen color matching which never will be out. I have my eye on that houndstooth coat, it would be very lovely with some red, maybe a bag or shoes. Also like the biker jacket and the inspired interiors u matched. Have a great day dear, kisses! xo

    Aww, yes. I'll always love black and white. It just works with everything! The simplicity of it makes it super manageable.

  16. I have to agree with you - black and white is a classical combination :)
    I like the interior collection you've put together... I'm just working on something on the same lines.


  17. those jackets are everything!

    Xo, Megan,

    Great post, when everything else fails, you can always count on black and white to bail you out. Seeing a lot of black and white decor these days and loving it more.


  19. Hi Madison, you have found my forte with these fabulous B&W pieces, love the printed coat, my room is actually black and white, it really is a favorite of mine. Thanks for stopping by hun :)

  20. Laurina Wong27 March

    love the monochrome colors!!<3

  21. That houndstooth coat is fabulous and I love the black and gold chain, it's my fave accessories combo!

  22. miss b27 March

    It's good to be catching up on your posts after my hoilday. You are right about black and white. It's classic and never really goes out of date. Easy to add a pop of colour for a change too. I love the dramatic coat and all the décor inspiration too.

  24. Black and white is always the right choice!! It's one of my favorite colour combos. I love to wear it and of course my interior is 90% black and white too. Have a happy day Madison. Btw the coat and the flats are awesome :)

  25. That houndstooth coat is awesome and reminds me of Gwen Stefani. <3

    yay black! :) i am more of a classic print kind of girl. bold interiors may be an option for some surprise element but over all i'm all about classics.

  27. I love the combination, but don't wear it myself (black doesn't suit me that well). The necklace looks very Versace when Gianni was still designing it. x

  28. that leather contrast jacket is so gorgeous! it's calling my name! hahaha love it. i've always been a fan of black and white. looks so good together. one of my bathrooms is black & beige. it's nice too.

  29. That leather jacket is to die for! From the photo, I can't even tell that it's faux. The colorblocking adds some drama to the standard black leather.

    Those shose are aaaaawesome!! <3

  31. I love classic prints and houndstooth is one of them! Love the flats, very cute!

    Liebe Madison, obwohl ich vermutlich auch am meisten Blazer und Jacken in meinem Schrank habe, habe ich gerade festgestellt, dass mir so ein schöner Mantel noch fehlt! Denn ich mag klassische Muster sehr gerne und ich finde, dass man mit einem Outfit, wie Du es hier zeigst, immer richtig angezogen ist. Unsere Einrichtung ist aber ein wenig bunter :)

    Alles Liebe from Bavaria/Germany, Rena

    I have been on the black and white fashion track for the past few months but it's funny you mention interiors--I looked around the other day and realized my home is moving in that direction without any conscious thought. It's just so easy and classic + everything goes with it so well. Love it in the home as well!

  43. That's one of the reasons I loved it so much, faux is fine with me, sometimes, especially when the details are very unique. :)

  44. So true! So timeless and very easy to wear and style. Nice post!

  45. Thanks Wynne! Glad that you like it. Classics are great, there are many black and white classic prints out there for your choosing.
