Seen on just about every other runway for Spring 2013, bold black and white is currently reigning as a major trending topic. Of course, the classic couple never exactly went OUT of style (and never will), but at the moment, designer-sunglassed eyes everywhere are focused on the sharp contrast cultivated by this iconic match-up.
As someone whose closet consists of roughly 75% black and white, I’m all in with this trend and ready to make a graphic impact. For this look, I opted for a fluid sheer white button-down with black trim and my new rag & bone tailored black shorts with leather detailing. Leather cuff sandals punctuate the ensemble with a structured edge, while bright coral lips add a vibrant shot of color. I even took a risk and (eeeek!) went sans eye makeup to give the lips a more dramatic effect. After all, fashion is nothing without a little risk.
