Stuck in a winter slump, I have been furiously keeping my eye on the bright and sunny colors coming in this spring’s fashions. I seem to have developed tunnel vision, only looking at colors that pop and demand my attention. So, it was a perfect time to run into this week’s Fashionista who is a stunning reminder that black and white can be just as attention grabbing and exciting as color. She confidently rocks a chic black and white look that can be easily be worn to class or out on the town. Black and white patterns are timeless and between her leggings and sweater, this Fashionista found a trendy way to make a statement.
The black and white combination works any time of the year and can be dressed up or down. This Fashionista demonstrates how black and white can be used in a fun and carefree way while still looking sophisticated. Her boldly patterned leggings are what first caught my eye. Their baroque style print creates visual interest that carries your eye up to her sweater and then down to her booties. I love a printed legging and this black and white pair is a great way to ease into the trend with pattern before color.
The cowl neck of her white cable knit sweater adds a high fashion edge to her ensemble and balances the artistic look of her leggings. She wears adorable heeled brown booties and adds a subtle embellishment with deep red knitted socks tucked over the ankles. She completes her look with a matching metallic necklace and bracelet. The necklace has a long tassel underneath the knot which helps to break up the thickly knitted sweater. When looking for black and white outfits during these upcoming winter weeks, take a note from this Fashionista’s book: go bold or go home!
