Chromatic dichotomy

I grew up wearing - from September to June and for six days per week - only black and white outfits, because in my school the uniform was mandatory. After the school period I didn't dress in black and white for several years, because I really needed a detoxification and to feel free to wear all the colors. Nevertheless, with the correct detachment, I recognize now the classic simplicity and the stylistic value of black and white. 

Here are some black and white inspirations. Don't care about the brands, what really matters is the essence behind these dresses.

LOOK 1
This dress is suitable for important events that take place during the day. It has a floral pattern only on the skirt part, therefore the general effect is not too strong. The white accessories enlighten the dark of the dress.

LOOK 2A
Elegant and chic like a première dame? This outfit is so simple that the result is extremely refined: a net separation in colors between the clothes and the accessories.
