Runway trends can be confusing to interpret, let alone incorporate into everyday life (hey visible nipples, I'm lookin' at you). Fortunately, there are just as many inspiring looks that can easily translate into a real life wardrobe, sometimes with pieces you might even already own! (Well, you likely already own a set of nipples, so I guess, really, that's always an option too).
This season, there have been endless runway looks reinterpreting one of the most classic combos known to (wo)mankind... Black and White. As simple as it may be, the Spring/Summer '16 runway renditions felt far from stale. Using them as inspiration, forget the tired outfit combos you've worn to death, and look at each peice anew, to reimagine them in fresh pairings. With so many ways to wear the trend, from clean lines and suiting, to romantic textures and sporty layers, there's sure to be a style to suit any girl or occasion. And hey, who's to say that girl or occasion might not just call for a visible nipple or two. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Pair romantic, girly flourishes, like lace, embroidery, and ruffles, with more masculine touches like leather, crisp tailoring, and classic shapes.
Make the old combo young again with sporty details, masculine shapes, volume, and layers. Straps, loose ties, and hardware add an extra edge.
Not-So-Basic White Tee + Black Skirt
From your go-to black skirt to your fanciest black skirt: skip the button down or dressed-up blouse, and throw on a clean white tee instead.
Mix and Match. Skirt instead of pants; lace instead of button-down; layers, ruffles, pompoms, volume. Wear it any way at all, as long as it's not your daddy's standard suit.
The Updated White Button-Down
With pants or a skirt, sneakers or heels, the new take on the classic white button down shirt still goes with everything, but feels totally fresh.
