While trying to reorganize my Fashion Forward Pinterest board that had accumulated over 3,000 pins, I decided to separate certain styles into more specific categories. I stumbled upon a very specific, very chic look that kept reappearing: an entire outfit created from only white and black items.
Now, I’m sure there’s a name for this, but I’ve coined it The Oreo Look and here are a couple of examples and styling tips as to how to get the perfect Oreo Look for your own fashionista endeavors
Black Pants + White Top
This look is so classy. Every time I see it, it just looks fabulous. Whether you’re wearing black jeans, leggings, slacks, or any variation in between topped with a plain white v-neck or a crisp collared shirt, you absolutely can’t go wrong with this look.
Black and White Gingham
The gingham adds a cheery, picnic feel while the black and white keeps it simple. Pair with crisp black heels and a cherry red lip.
Polka Dots or Stripes
Always adorable and very easy to pair with a black or white addition: black skirt, white shoes, black bag, and so on and so forth.
Nothing’s more classic than a graphic tee paired with some good old jeans. For The Oreo Look, make sure your tee is all black and white paired with black or white jeans. Or if you want to be a little adventurous, pair the tee with a patterned skirt: gingham, plaid, or any pattern that pleases you.
The Tuxedo Look
I love this look always: either on the red carpet or for any fancy night out. A crisp tux looks classy on anybody and doesn’t need a lot of accessorizing to really make a statement.
