After surviving seasons filled with neons, florals and bold prints, it’s refreshing to run into the ever so classic combination of black and white. The high contrast and lack of saturation makes this combination a bold one; a trend often referred to as “graphic chic.” And while black and white is a statement by itself, rocking a simple outfit and accessorizing with statement pieces is a new twist on an old trend.
Most college students are only knowledgeable on how to dress for early class and late night parties, but as many begin their careers Internship appropriate attire is slowly becoming a concern. Many women struggle to stay trendy and sophisticated without overdoing it. But, with the right fit and modest fabrics, any Fashionista can rock this season’s hottest trends and stay work appropriate!
I spotted this Fashionista while on her way to work and was immediately attracted to not only her outfit, but also her whole look. She wore a crisp white peplum top similar to ones seen at Forever 21 and H&M. As ladylike as peplum is, she kept things casual with black skinny denim and simple black flats. Though these pieces are quite simple, she accessorized with a striking pearl necklace, large black sunglasses, and an oversized handbag. For a more daring Fashionista, there are plenty of black and white patterns that are super stylish including stripes, polka-dots and even florals.
From the classic white pearls and oversized sunglasses of Audrey to the sleeveless black and white shifts of Twiggy, this unbeatable combination is one that will always remain a timeless trend.
