the term black and white dress code simply means formal. formal is usually black,gray, silver ,white, cream and beige color clothing. for men a tie is normally necessary and ladies are normally found in dresses. If you have received a high class invitation then it means exactly what it says ... men in black with white shirts, ties or ascots and women in black or black/white. No other colors!

A nun's formal "uniform" is called a habit. The term applies generally to the distinctive garments of a religious order. Some nuns also still wear the oversized white headgear called a cornette, while others wear black or black-over-white head veils, often over a white coif, or stiff cap.

The correct sentence is, "Jenny likes her black dress." *The common noun is: dress (a general word for a type of garment)The proper noun is: Jenny (the name of a specific person)The term 'black dress' is a noun phrase, a group of words based on a noun that functions as a unit in a sentence.The complete noun phrase is 'her black dress'. In the example sentence, the noun phrase 'her black dress' is the direct object of the verb 'likes'.*Note: The word 'black' is an adjective. An adjective is capitalized only when it is the first word in a sentence.

The term is monochrome. That means that there is only one color used. White in this case is not considered a color.
