Oh, the infinite joys of black and white! Peplum, wrap effect, drape design, leather, silk, satin, twill…so many interesting details and materials have been used to constantly reinterpret this classic combo, we haven’t counted the endless ways to accessorize it!

Here, Sophia Bush & Kim Kardashian modeled two different body types rocking this palette: Sophia Bush’s slightly boxy cut peplum top hides tummy bulge while skinny leather pants highlight lean legs, this outfit is great for an apple shape body.

Kim Kardashian’s ‘smart’ pants conceal her wide hips and make her legs look long and lean, thanks to the draped faith connexion, angled cuffs and flowy charmeuse material! The wrap effect blouse draws attention to her beautiful face. This outfit is great for a curvy and pear shape body.

In Chinese: 黑白配之所以经典在于它有太多的花样可以去变化、去玩,比如今天的这两个造型里看到的荷叶边、包裹或垂坠的设计,还有皮革、织纹、丝等不同面料的混搭,更不用说那些数不清的配饰了。

另外,今天所选的这两位明星还代表了不同的体型:索菲亚·布什(Sophia Bush)的这件硬挺材质的上衣加上荷叶边的装饰能遮盖小腹,紧腿皮裤又凸显了细长腿的优势,很适合苹果身形。丰满女星的代表金·卡戴珊(Kim Kardashian)的这条裤子更有心机,类似哈伦裤的前片可以遮小腹,脚踝处斜裁的设计和亚光的丝滑材质又起到了拉长身形的作用,很适合胯宽或大腿肉肉的梨形身材。

I'm Helen. In the huge fashion world, what attracts me the most is the way different people accessorize themselves. Our daily outfit choices are not just about the pieces we pick, they relate to something lurking deeply within our hearts: how we feel about ourselves, how we express ourselves to the rest of the world, what kind of people do we want to be and what kind of life do we want to live. Following my passion for fashion, I immerse myself in this bizarre world and try my best to share what I learned with you!
