How to Wear the Black-and-White Trend

The black-and-white trend is not anything new, but it’s back for summer and can be seen all over street style blogs. It’s one of my favorite go-to color combinations and since I already have a ton of both options in my closet (and I’m sure you do too), it’s one of the easiest trends to achieve. Not only is the black-and-white combo timeless and classic, it's also incredibly versatile. Pair a white blouse with black trousers to wear to the office, or throw on a leather jacket, your favorite worn-in white tee, and black skinnies and you’re set for brunch and a day with the girls. When in doubt, reach for the black-and-white combo and you’ll look effortlessly chic!

My favorite way to wear this combo is by colorblocking—taking two separates and pairing them together. In this look I took a basic white tee and paired it with a fun and flirty black skirt. To keep with the trend I kept my shoes and accessories black... but don’t be afraid to try a pair of white sandals too!

Timeless, easy, and sophisticated, now this is a trend I can get behind! Will you be wearing black-and-white this summer?
