WHAT COLORS OF CLOTHES TO WEAR? THE CASE OF WHITE AND BLACK
Let's destroy another common misconception right away: black and white are NOT the easiest colors to wear. And they don't fit everyone. On the contrary, it is very complicated to know how to match these colors:
White and black are at the opposite ends of the color spectrum: wear black with other colors that are not dark enough, and you only see the black garment that swears in the outfit. Same with white if the other clothes are not in light enough tones.
Moreover, these colors are not very practical:
The white quickly becomes gray by dint of washing or using the clothes,
and black fades quickly, unless you take really high-end clothes.
So use them more moderately, and if you buy black: do it by choice (= with a precise idea in mind), and not "by default". And as a reminder, if you're looking for the "easy choice" (which is quite understandable when you're just starting out) : well, take grey or navy.

You can trust the black blousson, and the white t-shirt. Beware of the rest in these colors.
