It's not so black and white...

A black bra under a white shirt is such a controversial look.  Most people say no, I say yes.  This combination can surely be a fashion faux-pas, but I personally think it can be pulled off if done correctly.

  I think the trick is to make sure the white shirt is covering your body and isn't too tight.  Also, your bra should fit.  The point is the make the black bra noticeable, but not so obvious that it's all people are distracted by it.

This is a total $teal since we all have a black bra and plain white shirt in our wardrobe.  Two basic staples that, together, are fashion forward!

Look here:

Ashley Olson

Anna Kournikova


If you carry yourself like a hot mess, well then, you are going to look like a hot mess.  These two images support the arguments against my assertion that the white shirt/black bra is doable:

I do feel bad for blasting the late Amy Winehouse seeing as her funeral was just yesterday.  Let's face it though, she was no fashion icon...

If Tara Reid's bra fit her, shirt was a bit longer, and her hair was brushed, she might have made this conversation tee work.  Alas, she's a big fail.

What do you think?  Is it black and white?  Would you wear this look?

  2. Nate, I apologize if I offended you. You must be a big Amy Winehouse fan. I meant nothing against her music, only her fashion sense. Please accept my apologies ;) Thanks for following!!
