Black & White for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s: Exclusively

Quote of the day: “Every minute is a new opportunity to make new decisions.” Maryjac from Weight Watcher’s Magazine

Black & white is a color combination that is widely seen everywhere!  Heck, there’s even a retail shop (White House/Black Market) that tailors to these colors (I know, I know….black & white are not “really” colors—but let’s be lax in the definition for this series).   I’m positive you have an excessive amount of each hue in your closet.  So I’m going to combine a black piece together with a white item and style these same selections in various ways–today is black & white exclusively!  My only caution with this union of two colors is the “uniform” of black pants & a white shirt—you might get mistaken for the waitress (not that being a waitress is a bad thing—I was one once)!!!

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: I picked a white skirt and black sweater for my foundation pieces.  Notice the necklace & earrings are a knit stitch…Thanks to my friend, Bill Poliseo, who made them—make sure to check out his website!

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: For Nancy’s foundation pieces, we used white jeans and a black & white print cardigan.  The colors are very basic, yet the cardigan and her shoes are quite interesting.
