Welcome to my Spring Fashion Ideas Series (3/5)
Black and White – Classic
Special thanks to my friend for taking this picture and editing it — After eating at Smorgasburg, (That’s right, I went again!) we also visited the Brooklyn Botanical Garden to see the beautiful cherry blossoms.
When I was thinking of classic Spring looks, my mind immediately went to floral and stripes. A true classic, no matter what season it may be, is Black and White. Crisp, Contrasting, and Chic. These opposite colors are in everyone’s wardrobe whether it’s in patterns, solids or key pieces such as leggings. I find myself staying away from white because I am quite the messy one when it comes to spilling food on clothes. Is it coincidence that it’s always only on my white/cream colored clothes?
I knew I wanted to start with a white top, black bottom, and work from there. I picked out a super lightweight short sleeved sweater that has see through mesh panels on the sleeves, perfect for letting the breeze hit your arms. Black leather leggings look chic and Sperrys are just so comfortable to walk around in. I added a black and off-white vest because if you know Spring weather, it is confusing: Super sunny and windy or cloudy with a chance of sun — I just couldn’t take any chances. For accessories, I stuck with minimal jewelry: “J” necklace, small silver hoops and two silver rings. The shades really helped because the day turned out to be beautifully sunny!
I hope you enjoy my new Spring Series! Do you wear black and white from head to toe?
