Parisians are known for their blackout wardrobe because, quite frankly, what else says très chic like the color black? This spring we saw the bold black and white trend throughout the runways. This trend is easily one of my favorite trends of all time and it seems popular amongst the Fashionistas/os in Paris. I spotted this Fashionista sporting the black and white trend while I was on my way to Musée du Louvre.
This day was one of Paris’ warmer days and everyone was out to enjoy the rays. Her outfit was perfect for any summer day. She took a simple white dress and added black and silver accents with her accessories. The black belt shapes the dress and gives definition to her waist. In addition to the belt, this Fashionista matched her belt with her black leather satchel. Satchels are perfect bags for summer days; they are small enough for you to carry your summer must-haves without having to lug around giant tote bags. As for shoes, she had on metallic and black gladiator sandals.
The Fashionista paired her simple outfit with statement jewelry. Starting up top, she had on a statement plated necklace. Now for my personal favorite part of her outfit, her arm candy. Her arm candy consists of a gold chain bracelet, a silver studded bracelet, a black leather studded wrap bracelet and a gorgeous Micheal Kors watch. Of course, she added a pair of sunnies to keep the sun out of her eyes.
The black and white trend allows an endless amount of possibilities to personalize the monochrome look. This Fashionista chose to personalize the look with her accessories. Whether your style is fierce and dramatic or simple and chic, there’s a black and white ensemble for every Fashionista. This trend is everywhere this summer, from major fashion bloggers like the Man Repeller to the Parisian spring runways. One last question, Fashionistas/os: what’s black and white all over? Answer: Your summer wardrobe.
