I’ve written a lot about the black and white trend this spring and my readers seem to have really taken to it. Here are some photos they sent in this week sporting one of the season’s hottest looks.
Mod Maxi Dress
Whether you’re sightseeing or taking a break on the balcony of your hotel room, when you are on holidays you want to look and feel good. Andewumi sure does! Andewumi who is from Nigeria, but is now living in London, was recently on holidays in Amsterdam when she posed for this photo.
Her chic maxi dress is a refreshing change from pants or a short sundress, and doesn’t she look comfy too? Wish I was there. You look fabulous, Andewumi!
How to Wear a Black and White Striped Skirt
Two of the hottest trends at the moment are Chevron-inspired prints and maxi skirts and dresses. LA-based fashion blogger Rebecca combines both trends for a sizzling look.
At 48, Rebecca rocks her black and white striped maxi skirt by keeping her top simple and adding a fabulous statement necklace.
To keep her accessories from being too matchy-matchy, Rebecca chose a brown leather clutch, which creates a nice contrast against the black. Love the drama of this maxi look, Rebecca.
Finally, a few more readers wearing black and white.

Kathy – Crazy for Chevron: This playful zig zag print was Cathy’s summer favorite in laid back Key West.
Carina- Polka Dot Shorts: Patterned shorts are all the rage right now. From polka dots to graphic prints, plaid, and everything in between, printed shorts make the summer fun. New Yorker Carina loves wearing shorts and has the legs for it! Look how she mixes opposite colored polka dots to create an on-trend look.
Teri – Bow Dress: Terri bought this cute black and white paisley print dress and adorned with an eye-catching black bow. Here she is wearing it at a recent birthday celebration with black platform heels.
Sheryl – Leather pants: Her long, flowing top pairs well with her skinny, black pants.
Sarah – Skirt and Top with Red Belt: Sarah from Sharpsburg, North Carolina looks lovely in a black skirt + floral print black/ white blouse. A bright red belt adds a pop of color to her outfit.
