Hey guys! On the blog today….a spring trend update: black and white edit.
Black and white…. A combination concept in the fashion world that has been around for, well basically, always. But for some reason, the “fashion experts that be” have decided that black and white is an “it” trend for this spring…. Which we are very happy about…. Because that means there are lots of really fun pieces to choose from in stores for those of us that have always loved the concept but need a fresh piece or two!
How To Incorporate The Black & White Spring Trend
When it comes to black and white, a fabulous black and white pattern is always a good option. Think stripes, polka dots, floral, check, or an abstract print….all are really great options for spring and summer! Alternatively, you can go for a colorblocked black and white piece. You can also achieve this look with a solid black top and white jeans. Or, you can even wear all black with a pop of white accessories or shoes to achieve the black and white vibe that is so hot this season. SO many options, so little time to wear them, right ladies?
Let’s take a look at some of our favorite black and pieces that are on trend right now.
Spring Trend Update: Favorite Black & White Pieces
We love these pieces together OR separately on their own. Either version achieves the black and white look we are loving this season. The polka dot poplin wrap top is so classic and yet whimsical at the same time. And the ecru leather shorts with black detailing are edgy and on trend. Put them together…. and it’s a match made in heaven!
This piece is a bit pricey for being a short sleeve sweater, BUT it is a piece that will stay in your closet forever. And there is just something about the vibrancy of the black and white stripes on this one. There is a way to enjoy this striped short sleeve sweater year round!
If you are looking for a showstopper dress for a special occasion – or date night – look no further. This one is spectacular! Petite and plus sizing available on this one.
Love this sweet little sundress! Wear it now with a white jean jacket or cardigan…. Wear it all summer when your shoulders are sun kissed.
For a more subdued black and white pattern, we really like this checked boucle cardigan!
The pool and the beach are great places to go bold with a black and white swimsuit. There are countless good ones this year, but this one stood out to us!
Note that because we love black and white all the time and consider it a timeless look, we included two such pieces in our Spring Capsule Wardrobe! For ideas on how to style these black and white pieces, be sure to check out our Like To Know It page!
Fun Black & White Accessories
If you don’t love the idea of wearing black and white, you can always give a little nod to this trend via your accessories!
Our most favorite Dolce Vita heeled sandal came out in a really fun black and white version for spring and summer…. We featured this shoe in our Spring Capsule Wardrobe, but it has a totally different feel in this black and white colorway!
And the sneaker we are currently obsessed with has a really cute black and white version…
This tote bag by Marc Jacobs is a really fun, subtle nod towards this trend. With spring at the ball fields and summer at the pool coming up, it’s a great time to invest in a sturdy tote bag… More on this later guys!
