It's all the rage! This season's stand-out trend is black and white. But, we're not talking about a pair of black trousers and a white top. To really pull off this trend, you have to put a little creativity into it. With the help of Holt Renfrew, Nine West, H&M, Forever 21 and Express we put together two looks to show you how to wear this season's hottest look.
My Outfit (Left): Blazer, Helmut Lang $740; Bag, Marc by Marc Jacobs $458; Shoes, Nine West $120 ; Skirt, Forever 21 $23.80; Top, H&M $49.95
Gill's Outfit (Right): Pants, Express $44.99; Blazer, Forever 21 $35.80; Shoes, Nine West $160 ; Bag, Express $69.90
The keyword is prints! We took some of our favourite spring 2013 pieces that feature black and white graphics and paired them together. This is probably the easiest way to pair prints because they are guaranteed to match. I got a kick out of putting together the high-end Helmut jacket with the $23 Forever 21 skirt. No matter the price-point, black and white is always sophisticated.
Gill deGraaf (my partner in crime and our style writer) added a pop of colour with a mint shoe to her outfit. The mint instantly made this look more spring!
P.S. How fabulous is that Marc by Marc Jacobs bag? I die!
Special thanks to Holt Renfrew, Nine West, Express, Forever 21and H&M for supplying the clothing.
