No Gray Area

I can't think of an easier to wear trend for 2013 than the ever classic contrast of noir and blanc duo. 

I have a feeling I will be basically living in this color combo for a few months for a number of reasons. Black and white make a serious statement when worn together, they offer an easy option for color blocking the two, and when in doubt we turn to black anyway so why not brighten it up with a little white? 

Remember you can always keep your black and whites monochromatic to avoid going full zebra. Stick to a head to toe of one color then add a pop of the other with shoes, a scarf, or jewelry. As always, don't be afraid to continue to mix prints and patterns in B&W. My personal favorite mix and match combos are polka dots, florals, and stripes! One more tip I think is key in achieving une tenue chic is the use of sharp lines and good tailoring. Pair straight cut trousers with a sheer top or a well fitting blazer over a long flowy maxi to up your chic factor.
