Trend Chic: Black and White

One of the hottest trends for spring 2013 is Black and White; while the stark contrast between these two colors can be quite jarring, when patterned, like stripes, they can create a great neutral palette.
1.  Cristina Love -Striped Tie-Waist Dress
2.  Chadwick's -White Denim Moto Jacket
3.  Very Volatile -La Brea Shooties in Black
A fun way to liven up the pattern of stripes is to add a splash (or two) of color; the black and white in the dress (1) is given a bright, springy twist with two of the seasons hottest colors: tender shoots and nectarine.  Summer white and denim combine effectively in this moto jacket (2), providing a textural contrast to the dress, while the entire ensemble is anchored with these black shooties (3).

 How I Style It?
1, 2, 3 Styling is fun when you are working with the basics; black and white are a timeless pairing, but tend to have a formal appearance when they are juxtaposed with each other.  The multi-colored, striped dress is a modern twist on the the black and white trend, serving double duty where they tone down the stark white jacket, and simultaneously brighten the dark, leather, cut-out shooties!  SN
