This spring, black and white is all the rage and everyone who's anyone has been seen sporting the trend. My favorite look so far is Beyonce in a structured jumpsuit at the Grammy's:
Bey keeps it minimal with peep toe pumps, coordinating black and white cuffs and a sleek ponytail. She also had a bold red lip and splashed her toenails in the same color. I created four outfits below if you're looking for ways to wear this trend:
I chose a polka dotted fit and flare dress. I love the pattern which gives the dress almost a tribal feel and I think the high neck makes it very ladylike and sweet - perfect for spring! I paired the dress with some white heels, the think straps will be prominent on your feet and really bring out the white polka dots. I also added a quilted envelope clutch, a silver watch and a dainty infinity ring. Finally, red lips and toes a la Beyonce will finish off the look! You can wear this outfit to a meeting, a lunch date or even to church!
If you want to look trendy yet still casual and comfy, then wear a flared leather skirt and pair it with a graphic tee. Cap-toed ballet flats and a studded bucket bag give just the right amount of casual cool. Pretty pink lips and nails keep the look playful.
For a more sexed up feel, this b+w neoprene dress should do the trick. The black paneling defines your waist and gives you an hourglass shape and simple black pumps will add height. A small (yet slightly shimmery) box clutch and glam dangling earrings complete the look. Since sexy siren is what you're going for, do red lips and sleek hair.
Tuxedo pants are still in style and paired with a black blouse and pumps creates a sophisticated look that is simple to put together. The same clutch and earrings from outfit 3 can complete this look since the focus is on the pants.
I hope you give the black and white trend a try. Which of the four looks is your favorite? How would you wear this trend?
