How to Make Black and White Super Fresh

Ultra violet, lime punch, cherry tomato, spring 2018 colors are going to be bright. And, you already know, I’m here for all the brights. Holding its own, however, among spring’s favorite brights, is the classic combination of black and white. I’m equally excited about this trend too. There’s just something so sophisticated and simple about black and white. It’s an old-school pairing that always feels right. This year, I’m looking forward to getting creative with the color combination. And, the styling options seem endless. Here are a few I think you’d like as well.

1. Have fun with silhouettes

Balloon sleeves, choker necklines, including a modern silhouette in your black and white look is an easy way to make it fresh. Standout structural pieces look especially sophisticated in black and white as well.

2. Pair a solid with a print

An all-over black and white print surely makes a statement. There’s something equally statement-making and also versatile about pairing a solid with a black and white print. Since I usually prefer to wear solid bottoms, I pushed myself to wear polkadots on the bottom in this look. The nudge was a move in the right direction.

3. Choose statement pants

Vertical stripes, mixed dots, all-over checks, print pants are having a moment. And, that moment is super special when the prints are black and white. I found these polkadot joggers on clearance in TJ Maxx for $10 (shop TJ Maxx online here)!

Are you as excited as I am to experiment with black and white looks this year? Find more style inspiration here, here, here, and here.
