Black & White

Black & White

One of the hottest Spring 2013 trends is the black & white ensemble. It was showcased in Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Jason Wu, and Elizabeth & James runways. Dresses, pant suits, shorts, and tops are all encompassing the hottest trends for spring into the black & white look. Lace detailing, sheer fabrics, and stripes will be among the accents that are up scaling the black & white trend.

With this trend it is easy to sport a casual look or a more feminine polished look. Grabbing a black maxi skirt or skinnies with a plain white tank is a comfortable on the go outfit. Or dress it up with a peplum contrast dress like this one from Kay Unger for Nieman Marcus $450. This dress has a unique black contrast lacing on the fitted bodice accented by a ruffled peplum, and a black slimming pencil skirt. No need to add a a sky high heel, a simple leather or patent leather pump will do. If your shopping on a budget this Forever 21 peplum dress is quite the deal for only $22.80. Adding another trend for Spring: textures, this dress has a textured ruffled peplum bodice and a slimming pencil skirt.
