Okay, so some trends can be tricky—camouflage, anyone?—but others are oh-so easy, which is exactly the case with the latest fad to hit the fashion world: black and white. Yes, this fall you can simply slip into a two-tone dress or throw on a set of separates in these neutral colors and you’re all set. Of course, despite the ease with which you can try this trend, it never hurts to have a little outfit inspiration, which brings us to today’s Trend Report. With today’s report and a few style cues from stars like Rihanna and Jessica Alba, you can rock this trend in an instant. Read on!
Who is trying this trend?
This trend has been spotted all over Hollywood. Glee actress Dianna Agron has given it a whirl, as have fellow actresses Jessica Alba and Jessica Chastain and singer Rihanna.
How are they styling it?
What can we say? This trend is just so easy to pull off. In fact, because your color palette is all set, there are only two things you should focus on. The first is your silhouette. Specifically, make sure you find pieces that fit your body perfectly, even if that means going to a tailor to change up a hem or a neckline. The second it to make sure you find pieces that suit the occasion. For instance, for a night out on the town, Rihanna chose a two-tone mini dress, while Jessica Chastain opted for a chic frock and blazer while attending an industry event. Both these looks were appropriate for their respective events and both these looks fitted their respective bodies perfectly.
