agreement of adjectives when two adjectives describe the same noun
I thought that if two adjectives were being used to describe the same noun, then you wrote these adjectives both in the masculine form, even if the noun is feminine, e.g. Elle a acheté une nouvelle robe blanc et noir.
Yet, the correct answer in a quizz I did was "les canines blanches et pointres", not "blancs et pointres".
Can someone please explain this?

Just to add to what Ron said - your first example would be, une robe blanche et noire.
I think the rule you are thinking off is when you use a modified colour like light /dark/royal/navy blue...
Then there is no agreement. i.e.
Des yeux bleu clair
Une robe bleu marine
Hope this helps!
