Black & White is definitely NOT boring!

Even though horizontal stripes are not normally a girl’s best friend, because there’s so much fabric in the skirt and the waist is nipped in and structured it does give a really good shape.  I love the heavy jewelry with this look as well but I may have thought about adding some colour with the accessories.  You could literally team this with anything in terms of colour – red, blue, green, neon …….  It has lots of possibilities.

There are quite a few black and white striped dresses available on the High Street at the moment, but beware of cheap fabric as it will cling to all the wrong places!  To get the look, I would recommend buying decent fabric and contacting a good dressmaker.  This style of dress is timeless and will never go out of fashion.  It will make a fashion statement now and indeed in 5 years time too!  Definitely worth the investment.
