I find that black-and-white dresses are versatile and while the color scheme is limited, they make a huge visual impact. In this dress, I opted to use a fabric with black-and-white lines in the sleeves and in the skirt and a fabric with black-and-white polka dots in the bodice.
The sleeves are short ending right under the arm pit - they are perfect for hot summers; they allow for easy movement of the arms. The skirt - a circular skirt - is made out of three separate panels. While I could have matched the pattern, I decided to mix it up! The front panel has the black-and-white lines running vertical giving the body a nice long look. The side/back panels have the lines running horizontal but as one turns they end up meeting in the back seems on an angle. It's all about option illusion!
Do you have a black-and-white dress? How do you style it? Do you find it to be versatile and appropriate for many occasions?
