Black & White for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s: With a pop of Color

Quote of the day: “Never doubt that you are more capable than you think.” Linda from Weight Watcher’s Magazine
Since we explored black & white by itself in the first of the series (here), now we get to add some stimulation to the mix!  This option is truly endless (and thus easy peasy) as a result that black & white are both neutrals.   You can absolutely pair any bright or muted color with it!  I’m still using the same black & white pieces from the first post, and will use them again in the next one.

50’s Black & White: Adorning yourself with a bright colored scarf has to be the easiest way for anyone to achieve this pop of color.  If it’s too hot for a scarf, try a bright pair of shoes!!

60’s Black & White: Red is a perfect addition to this fusion of black & white.  Just one small, red t-shirt can add some life to these pieces!

70’s Black & White: We added the green cardigan over the foundation pieces and even affixed a pin for the cuteness factor.  We used to have an old English sheepdog named, Shag, just like the pin!
