Rachel Zoe, Celine, Zero + Maria Cornejo
This spring 2013, black and white monochrome outfits are one of the big trends. Many different interpretations were seen from spring 2013 runways. Celine embraced the oversized and casual black and white monochrome, Rachel Zoe opted for sexy and edgy ensembles such as black and white dresses and suits, while Zero + Maria Cornejo featured a few of comfy but put-together mono mixes. Even Chanel is very much about black and white looks heavily accessorized with pearls for spring. A classic and timeless duel, black and white is definitely chic! Here are five looks to inspire you.
Black and White Stripes Sweater
This outfit probably makes you think of Alexa Chung, she makes a sweater and skirt tandem look super chic! Wear a black and white stripes sweater with a black textured pencil skirt. A strap me up suede pump will elevate the entire look into sophistication. Add a snake print shoulder bag for more glam effect.
Black Salt and Pepper Skater Dress
It´s very freeing to wear a sleeveless skater dress on a not chilly spring day. This black salt and pepper skater dress comes with a slim contrast belt. It looks great with a neutral print flat and an oversized bag for a stroll at the park or for running errands.
Biker Jacket Over Striped Dress
Lady chic meets edgy is what describes this monochromatic spring look. Toughen up a chic, black and white sleeveless long dress with a black leather biker jacket. Go for strappy black wedged sandals and a black fringed bag to inject playfulness. This ensemble is a signature street look for spring!
Black and White Monochromatic Street Look
Another street look which channels a mix of punk and edgy is this black Amour Music tank top teamed with black string joggers. Forget running shoes, you´re not wearing this to actually jog, instead, opt for ankle straps platform which speaks lots of attitude. Polish up with black studded bag and black biker jacket.
Black Lace Top and High Waist Skinny Jeans
High waist jeans aren´t going anymore, they´re coming back for spring and summer. How about topping it up with another spring trend? I´m thinking spring sweet and modern lace. Add a black lace cropped top to your high waist skinnies. Too skinny? Ditch the high heels and go for laced up black boots to temper the sexiness of the look.
