Combining two of the simplest colors this spring can create a surprisingly standout look. You guessed it, black and white. We can thank the eye of some of the hottest designers like Marc Jacobs and Moschino for this burgeoning, fresh-from-prison trend. Black and white stripes are popping up everywhere from adding an extra touch on fit and flare dresses, taking your typical tee to a totally new level, and even creating a more modern, super sleek blazer (get it out for those internship interviews to dress to impress). The vertical stripes can create another advantage – slimming your figure! The stripes naturally draw the eyes upward, lengthening slimming your torso (#winning)! So take a page in the book from Mr. Jacobs who knows that black and white and striped all over was always hot because this trend is becoming a mainstay. Grab the boldest bikini and be the trendiest girl catching rays at the pool, powering through Starbucks for your morning java blast, or standing out from the rest zigzagging around campus.
