The Timelessness of Black and White

Although color processing entered the world of photography in 1907, I often find myself adding a black and white filter to add a level of sophistication to my Instagram photos. The lack of tones allows the photo viewer to focus on the content of the photo rather than a muddled spectrum of color. In both the world of fashion and photography, black and white always proves to be effective in promoting the subject matter. As said by Coco Chanel, "Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony."

Black works for everyone when it comes to dressing. It's slimming, easy to find, and most importantly: neutral. Pair your favorite LBD with a pair of bright shoes and a bag, or a collection of black accessories. Embellishing an outfit with black accessories allows a great level of flexibility with make-up and outfit choice. Along with the black skater dress and Louboutins, we've selected three black Shop2Chic accessories to make the outfit pop. This black bag is embellished with faux caviar leather and a slender gold chain. At a width of about a foot and a depth of five inches, it is the perfect size to hold your belongings for a night out. The floral statement ring and black acrylic earrings also add some variety and glam to this simple outfit. 

White acts as black's counterpart when it comes to fashion and accessorizing. It provides the same notion of simplicity and flexibility, but in a more angelic manner. The set above combines white and off-white accessories to display the versatility of the shade. The collar shift dress is from Mango, and the nude fever heel is from We've paired the outfit with two Shop2Chic products, in both cream and white. The tulle floral ring (which also comes in black and pink) compliments the feminine cream heels, and the white studded bag adds an edge to the simple shift dress.

The four Shop2Chic bags above display the true harmony of black and white. Unifying the two shades in one handbag emanates a statement of elegance and class. Check out for more black and white products!

Stay Chic,
