Dramatic Black and White

Black and white is taking off in a big way this spring. This is one trend straight off the spring runway that anyone can easily replicate. Not sure how to approach the trend? Look no further than these five looks for inspiration, and then head to your closet (or the mall)!

ANIMAL INSTINCTS

Lions, and tigers, and zebras? Why not! Mix and match animal prints just like you would other patterns. Wear them alone as statement pieces or pile on the prints for a more exotic look.

GINGHAM STYLE

Reminiscent of traditional picnics, gingham is the perfect pattern for spring. These Rachel Roy heels easily transition to the office with a simple black skirt and this Joie silk top.

MOD MADNESS

Twiggy may have hit her peak in the 1960s, but the signature look she created has and always will be a classic. Play up the look with heavy winged eyeliner for night or a soft lip for day.

MENSWEAR INSPIRED

Take a cue from the boys, and try an unconventional take on the classic suit. This vest is super sexy without an undershirt and office appropriate with an oxford shirt. Keep it feminie with a bold lip.

PRISON CHIC

Horizontal stripes have never looked so good! Add a blazer to the dress for the office or swap the heels for sandals when it’s time to hit the beach. Stripes not really flattering on you? Try these Kate Spade heels for a simple take on the trend.
