Patterns and prints can add some fun to an otherwise conservative, monochrome outfit. In this outfit, instead of adding the Romaria ZigZag Coat to a plain black pair of pants, we chose Good Clothings’ Black Fan Pants. We styled the black and white prints with textured, cow hair loafers by House of Cinnamon and added a pop of colour with orange lips and nails. Pearl accents look great with the cream coat so we added the pearl-embellished Alice band and Iloni Pearly Earrings.

WILL THIS OUTFIT SUIT ME?
Black and white suits everyone. Cream can be a little more tricky on very pale skin tones but looks sensational on everyone else. The cream colour of the ZigZag Coat is a cool shade which makes it less limiting that a yellowy-cream.
The coat length is just over the knee on an average-height woman and is flattering on all body types.
The pants are high-waisted with a waistband that is elasticated at the back for a good fit in the natural waist. These pants have pleats at the front which can accentuate a “tummy”.
The loafer shoes come in either 4mm or 15mm heels so you can add a little height should you wish to.
ACCESSORIES WITH YOUR BLACK AND WHITE PRINTS OUTFIT
Alice bands have made a comeback, believe it or not! We recall wearing these embellished and padded hair accessories in high school. And with COVID making our hair salon visits less frequent, a distraction from the regrowth is welcome!
We love the combination of the cream ZigZag Coat with pearly accents. The pearl-embellished Alice band is perfect, and we repeated the pearl theme with the Iloni earrings.
The 90s Rayban-inspired frames add a slightly nerdy, librarian vibe to this black and white prints outift.
MAKEUP WITH BLACK AND WHITE PRINTS OUTFITS
Instead of neutral makeup, we like adding a pop of colour to monochrome outfits. We swapped regular red for orange on the lips and tips. Glossy lipsticks rub off easier, especially when wearing a mask. So if you are choosing lipstick, stick with matte or more creamy textures. Lip stains are also a good option. Keep eyeshadow minimal with light brown on the lids and lots of mascara. My favourite mascara is the Hey Gorgeous Pure Wild Volumising Mascara.
