How to dress for a black and white party

On a black and white party it is obvious that you, as the dress code says it, should wear black and white. There are a lot of possibilities. You can wear white with black accessories, black and white garments combined or you can go for black and white printed dresses and black and white printed pants, tops or jackets combined with white or black garments. Having this many possibilities deciding what to wear to a black and white party can be confusing. No worries! Just apply our following tips and you will look fabulous on your upcoming black and white party!

  • Wear attire that suits the event and location that your attending. If the party is a more fancy event, for example a wedding of a party in a chic hotel then go for more formal attire like a cocktail dress. For a more casual event like a black and white party in the club you can wear more casual attire like cute pants, skirts and dresses with fashionable tops and/or jackets.
  • Always wear clothes that have a good fit and that flatter your body shape, this immediately makes you look so much better.

  • For a more formal event, go for dressy high heeled pumps or open sandals. For a more casual event high pumps and sandals are also always a good choice but hot ankle boots, possible with a peep toe can also look very trendy!
  • Black is the safest color for your footwear and bag for a black and white party. Keep in mind that, the more formal the event is, the smaller your bag should be. Large bags, even though they can be really cute and fashionable, will always look more casual. Keep them for casual daytime events while you can choose for clutches for more formal evening events and for the club.
  • Do put some effort in your hair and makeup regardless of the kind of party you're attending.
  • Don't forget to wear beautiful accessories. Our advise is, don't overdo it for a formal party. Keep it simple and elegant so that the focus is on you. For more casual parties you have more space to wear your accessories the way you like.
