Up today on the blog is a fellow Austinite…Michelle Pimm. She is a fashion/lifestyle blogger, social media strategist + copywriter all rolled into one stylish and charming gal. Today, she does her take on a Spring trend, a la Fashion meets Decor.
You might have one of spring’s biggest trends waiting for you in your closet. Like right now. I’m serious. Don’t believe me? It’s the black and white trend that was seen on the runways of Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs, and after past seasons of pretty pastels and bright neons this might be a bit of head scratcher. But there are plenty of pros to this two-toned duo. When black and white hangout, suddenly things are high-contrast and visually interesting. This look can be graphic, fresh, and modern. The best part? It’s so easy.
All it takes is your beloved white tee or button down, paired with your black skinny jeans or go-to skirt. Yeah, I told you it was easy. Want take to another level? Purchase a few power blazers in black or white and then mix. Suddenly, a chic look is born.
If you’re thinking about introducing this trend into the home, but are fearful of overdoing it, then start with a graphic rug, tile, or art piece. Guaranteed graphic beauty! So what do you think? Is this a trend you’re going to try?
