Bold in Black and White
This simple A-line dress in any solid colour would be lovely but in thick black and white stripes a stunning contrast is created. It gives the whole outfit a much bolder look and feels so fashion-forward. The length is perfect on her and the crew neckline is simple, allowing the print to be the focus of the look. Chloe’s shoes are striped too but on a smaller scale. Even with just the dress and shoes, this look is remarkably chic and so additional accessories have been left off. Adding extra pieces could compromise the simplicity of the look and become too much.
Chloe’s look is meant for the red carpet, but a day-to-day version can be found in boutique dress shops online or in person. This look can be quite simple to emulate as the main requirement in a black and white striped dress. The stripes don’t necessarily have to be the same width and the dress can be a slightly different style (though should still have a clean, simple silhouette) and the essence will still be there. Lilika’s Voila Dress in black and white is a great option. The look of this dress is more suited to casual occasions—with matte stretch fabric instead of woven fabric with a sheen—so you’ll get to enjoy the look more often!
For a look like Chloe’s, let your dress be the main focus and minimize the add-ons. If you can get your hands on a pair of black and white striped shoes, these are perfect for creating an outfit just like Miss Moretz’, but solid black or white pumps or wedges would look great too. If you do feel like wearing some sort of accessory, choose something that won’t take away from the dress. The Heavenly Yours Bracelet in black or white would fit well with the palette of the outfit and add a chic touch without standing out too much (as a coloured piece would). A messy ponytail and a thick swipe of eyeliner will complete this look and pull the whole thing together.
Quite a dark look, this outfit is primarily black with some colour in just one garment. The black creates a solid background for the one printed, colourful piece to stand out against. The silhouette of Chloe’s top and pants are very simple and fit close to the body while the jacket fits a bit looser creating an effortlessly cool layered effect. Her shoes are a bit strappy and have a feminine look that balances the edginess of the moto jacket.
For your own outfit, start by choosing a pair of fabulous printed pants. They don’t necessarily have to have a lot of black in them; it’s the detail of the print that is key as it is what makes the pants stand out. Try a modern floral for a more feminine feel or an animal print, like the Delight ¾ Pants, for a more flirty look. A simple t-shirt or tank in black will do for the top, and a fitted version lie the Dainty Black Top is perfect. When weather is cool enough to allow for it, a leather (or faux-leather) moto jacket creates that layered look we see in Chloe’s outfit and provides your outfit with that rebellious vibe.
Alternatively, you could also interpret Chloe’s look as being a top and jacket matched to a colour in the printed pants. A more colourful look would be to match light blue pieces with the Delight ¾ Pants. The Flirt Top with the Katie Blazer in blue would be great for this softer look.
This is another look where Chloe has skipped accessories. Jewelry isn’t necessary for this look as, again, the look is based on the simplicity of the pieces and made fabulous by the balance of solid black and an exciting print. Strappy black heels complete Chloe’s outfit but a pair of black flats would be perfectly fitting as well, especially if they have some stud details that mirror the hardware on your moto jacket. Pull your hair into a low ponytail and wear a simple, fresh makeup look if you’d like to keep your styling similar to Chloe’s.
A posh mix of hard and soft, the angular nature of this outfit is complemented by the lighthearted feel of the white and powder blue garments. The shape of the clothing is key to this look as the shoulders of the jacket and the flare of the skirt create a very hourglass shape, though it’s more angled than curvy. This unusual silhouette gives the look a fierce quality despite the cuteness of the colours. The textures in the pieces are also important to the overall look as they break up all the solid colours and give depth and interest to the garments. Her footwear reflects the black and white on her upper body, mirroring the shades and creating clear cohesion within the outfit.
For an outfit inspired by Chloe’s, start with a simple white top. In Chloe’s outfit, she has chosen a simple collared shirt, but for something a little more laid-back, the Adore White Top would work beautifully. It’s still solid white and also has a vertical line down the front created by the lace detail. Chloe’s shiny black blazer is great for the red carpet, but for a daytime look, the Fanciful Cardi-Jacket is a great alternative. It has the right shape for the look and it has a geometric design woven into the fabric that adds interest to the solid black piece. For the pop of colour, choose a shorter A-line skirt that has a print you love. We recommend a piece like the Ladelle Skirt that features a vibrant blue shade and a modern floral pattern.
Black and white patterned shoes are perfect for this look. Chloe opted for a spotty design but stripes or a colour-blocked look would be great too. If you don’t have shoes that fit this description, go for a pair of black shoes. The dark colour will balance the black jacket at the top of your outfit. Though Chloe, again, forgoes accessorizing, a couple of small pieces would look charming. Try a glittery bracelet like the Poshed Up Bling Bracelet and statement ring with lots of rhinestones. Loose, wavy hair is perfect for topping this look and a dark smoky eye will add a sultry touch if you’re headed out in the evening.
