Black and white is one of the easiest color combos to wear…ever! These two colors are the easiest neutrals to throw on and make full impact with your outfit. Black and white separately are an easy go to, but the contrast when combining them is such a striking look. There are a myriad of ways to style this fab pair, and we took to the streets to show you how to take advantage of one of the best spring styles.
When styling black and white texture can be a key player. Kathy mixes patterns and textures in this outfit with tweed shorts and a fab sequin top from Zara. It adds interest and dimension to two neutral colors, although we have to say this outfit is anything but neutral or boring. The outfit is anchored by the classic tweed short, and adding a more vibrant and fun top, simple scrappy heels, and a black raincoat for those raining days, and you have a fabulous outfit that can be worn to so may different things. Accessorize with layered necklaces, glam earrings, a fab bracelet, and/or a few rings.
Throwing on a light trench / raincoat is one of the most important pieces in your spring wardrobe. Not only does it wholly complete your outfit, it adds a layer of chic, city girl functionality for a breezier or wetter day!
Rainy Day Casual
Ripped white jeans have a modern girl vibe and are an essential part of your jean wardrobe. Color blocking in any outfit instantly ups your game. Add a black top to white bottoms, and boom!, you have an easy outfit that still looks chic. Kathy styled her jeans with a blousy top to feminize her look. Hunter boots are essential on those rainy spring day, and there isn’t much a classic black pair won’t go with when it’s storming outside.
Obviously, this look can be styled with heels, slides or sandals, depending on where you are headed. Adding a pop of spring color is never a bad idea, and on those rainy days, your umbrella may be your best accessory. Every girl should have a couple chic an beautiful umbrellas in her arsenal, like this one that KF carries in her backpack everywhere she goes.
Color-blocking these two colors is ideal for evening time style. Black is always great for the night and the white adds a sleek contrast that makes it a little more interesting. Everyone knows that a LBD is an essential in your closet, but updating it with a white contrast gives it that added and extra punch of contrast and takes it to the next level.
