New season, new look! Black and white is a classic combination for a reason, but this season, it’s gone graphic. Bold stripes, dots, zig-zags —sometimes all in one dress!— add dimension and a dash of mod to a much-loved pairing. Read through on why it’s not only different, but a must-have this season. Closet pieces you’ll love from The Graphic Black & White collection now as part of our Spring Trend Guide, and read on for tips on how to wear it!
Yes, Black & White is a classic color combo, but what’s new for the season is the graphic appeal of standout dots, wide stripes, and bold florals. Try mixing patterns in the restrained color palette for maximum impact.
WHERE TO WEAR IT
This is a trend we love for the office. The sharp lines are often seen in work-friendly silhouettes like sheaths and fit & flare dresses. You can always tone it down with a black blazer or add a pop of color with a bright cardigan in a spring tone.
Don’t be afraid to mix your patterns! Whether it’s a striped top and floral skirt or layering a top under a dress, this makes the trend fun and fresh. Pops of bright color like electric blue, neon yellow and cherry red are perfect with these monochrome looks — have fun with your accessories! And don’t forget how good a red lip looks with a black and white outfit.
Black and white is the perfect backdrop for color. Go minimal with more neutrals like gray and tan, or stand out with neons or brights. For Spring, light pink and light blue look extra lovely paired with a black and white piece. Don’t be afraid to mix your accessory colors up since the black and white offers such a good base for different hues.
