Between The Lines: Black & White

Hi Everyone, 

I was asked recently in an interview what my favourite fashion trend is of the season, but anyone who knows me, knows that I always temper my trends with classic pieces and never go full on head to toe in trends. I think it's always a mistake to go full on trends, as it looks staged and often times has already been done. I think we should focus on what flatters our bodies and go with it, I always say 'Comfort is key'. Anyway, back to my favourite trend right now, which is not really a trend but a timeless classic, black and white duo, may it be in bold stripes, polka dots, colour blocking, houndstooth or graphic prints. Black and white previously blogged here, has taken a resurgence thanks to the Spring/Summer 2013 collections of some designers like Marc Jacobs, Tibi, Oscar de la Renta, and Michael Kors to name a few.

This black and white sweater dress from Bebe 2 was gifted from my dear friend Jessica for Christmas; truthfully I was a little worried that the horizontal stripes would make me look wider, but little did I know that it would in contrast hide any (and by any I mean all) my flaws. I love the black panels on the side as they served as side contouring. I decided to take a try at mixing prints by adding the polka dot leggings which hugged and I think brought the look together.








SHOPPING  DETAILS:






I have so many plans for styling this dress, I can see myself waring it over a long maxi and tucked into some high waisted pants... possibly coming soon to a blog roll near you ;) 

Thanks for reading everyone!! Let me know if you are as excited about this trend classic duo as I am! ;) Have yourselves a great start to the weekend! 

Natalia Oh!
