Black-and-white dressing is one of the biggest color trends in fashion right now. We love that it’s bold, graphic, and simple all at once—plus it’s so easy to wear. Black-and-white pieces make up the majority of our closets, which gives us innumerable pairing options.
A pair of slim black jeans and a white shirt is about as straightforward as it gets, but don’t forget about prints like plaid, gingham, stripes, and polka dots. We also love Tibi’s paint-splattered full skirt that reminds us of a really chic Rorschach test. We’d wear it with a little black crossbody bag and black turtleneck.
To keep your black-and-white outfits from looking too basic, add texture. Tamara Mellon’s new line includes a fabulous fringed leather skirt that we’re already dreaming of pairing with a plain white crewneck. Oscar de la Renta’s luxe sequined Breton stripe sweater is practically begging for a pair of cat eye sunglasses—and Marc By Marc Jacobs’ are a steal at $98.
While we have many ideas on how to style these colors together this winter, the truth is there’s no wrong way to do it. With leather, feathers, silk, and cashmere at your fingertips, what are you waiting for?
