Black is the color of mourning in most western countries. It can be both positive and negative such as in Western movies where the bad guys wear black, the good guys wear white. Black is mysterious as in the movie Dracula who wore black.
How to wear black:
It is a formal and prestigious color for formal attire parties. Black dresses for a sophisticated and slimmer look.
Wear black to work to convey sophistication, strength, elegance, and a touch of mystery. Black works well with bright, jewel-toned shades of blue, green, red, soft yellows. Black provides a contrast to these colors and really makes them pop out. Layer black outfits with gray and wear blue shades of jewelry for a conservative look; the blue will convey loyalty and calmness. A black outfit combined with a pink jewelry gives your look a feeling of strength yet feminine. Be careful when combining a dark outfit with dark jewelry, the two will just blend together

The Color White
White represents purity, cleanliness, and innocence.
In western cultures white is worn by brides. White is associated with hospitals, doctors, nurses, and dentists. Angels are depicted as wearing white. In western movies, the good guys wear white.
How to wear white:
Wearing white is fine but do not wear an all white outfit. An all-white outfit looks like a uniform, unless you have a job in the health care industry such as a doctor or nurse. Chefs and painter sometimes wear all-white.
Use white in small portions, such as a white blouse under a beige jacket or suit. Wearing a white blouse under any color jacket looks stylish. Light beige and ivory can be used in place of a white outfit and still convey purity and cleanliness. Winter white outfits can be worn during the winter; it is a more subdued white color.
White goes with any color, so accessorizing is simple. White can make any other color pop out. Add a sterling and black colored gemstone pendant along with your white blouse to convey strength, confidence, and sophistication. Add some blue jewelry for loyalty and trust. Add some pink jewelry for some added femininity.
