Gables Style: Not-so-Basic Black and White
By Ginger Harris of ElectricBlogarella.com
From Marc Jacobs to Oscar de la Renta and Proenza Schouler, one of the most eye-catching trends to come down the catwalk is black and white. Check out just a few of the ways fashionistas will be sporting this trend come spring.
Dress It Up:
Read through the lines: Black and white-stripped dresses are an easy way to incorporate the bold fad into your wardrobe. A stop in to my Best Friend’s Closet will lend to stripes in all directions, like a DV Dolce Vita sleeveless dress in horizontal stripes, $110, or a longer version with stripes of a different direction, vertical, from BCBG, $434.
Piece it Together:
Not sure you’re ready to fall in line? Try working the trend together through separates. At Isa Boutique, the long, silk white wrap skirt from Daniela Corte, $294, pairs perfectly with the Girasol silk top, $199, giving the trend an elegant edge.
In addition to black and white, florals are also getting their 15 minutes of fame this spring, so why not make the most of both and wear the combo together? Essence Boutique carries a Darling dress, $107, in black and white with a blooming pattern that’s as striking as it is on point for the season.
However you choose to wear it, the mod marriage of black and white this spring is sure to be a perfect match.
