8 Ways to Wear It: White Tee and Black Shorts Part 1

how to stype a black and white outfit 8 different ways

black and white outfits are so versatile

“I just don’t understand how you can get so much use out of so few items in your wardrobe guides. Don’t you get bored with a capsule wardrobe?” I hear some version of this question on a regular basis because of my Stunning Style Wardrobe Guides, seasonal curated collections of classic wardrobe pieces.

The truth is, I don’t always follow a capsule wardrobe. About half the time I use the guides as a foundation to my closet. And other times I love the simplicity a capsule wardrobe brings to my life. To show you how versatile it can be, today I’m styling a basic white tee and black shorts 8 DIFFERENT WAYS, and 8 more ways on Thursday.

A black and white outfit is essentially the perfect blank canvas waiting for you to put your personal touch on. You can also do it with black pants and a white tee, or a white button up. What would you add to it to make it yours? We are in the middle of the Classic Closet Style Series. Have you found your style yet? There are a few more posts coming, so don’t worry if it’s not feeling quite right yet.

In the video below you can see how I transition from one outfit to the next. If you enjoy these video look books let me know by subscribing to my YouTube channel!

  1. Thanks for doing the video! In addition to the outfit combinations, I love how you rolled up your sleeves on the gingham shirt. I can never get my sleeves to say put but now I can try how you did it. And even the piece of cardboard on top of the base of the clothing rack is genius to store shoes.

  2. Thanks Margot! I’m glad it was helpful. I can’t believe you noticed my cardboard trick. I didnt think anyone would see that. I love this rack, but I really wanted a base to put the shoes on, so that’s what I rigged up. Maybe I should spray paint it silver. #addittothelist
