While the holiday season is the perfect time to stand out and show-off when it comes to your sartorial choices (hello head-to-sequins!), the start of the year brings with it very different wardrobe necessities. Maybe it's the gray and all-too-short days, but our bold shades of green and red just don't feel quite right as we head into mid-January. So, what does one wear between the high-shine of holiday and the ultra-femme florals of spring? Our answer; a color palette that is as timeless as it is bold. Yup, we're talking about black and white.
And just because this combo is timeless doesn't mean it has to be as stale as those leftover holiday cookies still lingering in your pantry. Try mixing and matching patterns for a street-style worthy take on black and white. May we suggest a slightly oversized striped sweater with a pair of plaid pants? Or you could just play texture matchmaker (à la the photo above) and mix a handful of different fabrics for a modern, and very cozy, ensemble made for chilly weather.
So go on, relish the timeless palette of black and white with our top picks for an effortlessly on-trend look...
