We all love black and white, whether you admit it or not. They are extremely versatile and can be styled with every other color. Wearing the two colors on their own can create a modern, minimalistic-chic vibe, but did you know that they’re also great for juxtaposing colored pieces? Today’s Fashionista shows us just how a little color can go a long way.

This Fashionista wears a flowy black maxi skirt with a peekaboo slit down the side. Maxi skirts, especially in black (anything in black, really), are so effortless and can be worn in the colder months, as well. A crisp white crop top helps create balance and is the perfect length for the skirt. A glimpse of midsection is still sexy, but modest!

The outfit is complete with a pair of not-so-subtle turquoise earrings. They add a bang to the overall look and serve as a focal point. The unexpected pop of bright color in an all-black and white ensemble creates a fun look and adds flair. If you have jewelry or an accessory in a bright color that you want to show off, consider wearing it with an all-black or white outfit. The attention will immediately go to the color in the look, regardless of how small the piece may be! Think of it like wearing a bold red lip with barely-there makeup.
