Black and White and Print, Oh My!

Hands down, one of the biggest trends for Fall/Winter 2012 is black and white with print. Seen on the runways of Thakoon Panichgu, Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Taylor, and Jason Wu, this classic trend is truly one to invest in. Not to mention, black and white printed pieces create the illusion of being more slim (which I’m sure most people can live with).

My favorite way to rock these playful prints? With a pop of color and a dash of personality.

1. Rag & Bone White/Black Printed Silk Top, $245

2. BCBGMAXAZRIA Amelie Signature Snake-Print Shoulder Bag, $139.290

3. Miss Wax Black/White Abstract Out of the Box Ring, $49

4. Brooks Brothers Cotton Silk Graphic Floral Oblong, $44

5. Topshop Paisley Cigarette Trousers, $70

6. Yves Saint Laurent Square Wayfarer Sunglasses, $275

A Classic Must-Have: Bouclé

Made popular by Jackie O in the ’60s, bouclé is easily one of the most recognizable and classic fabrics of all time . It’s highly textured appearance is both rough, yet chic making the material easily parable with plain t-shirts and jeans. It is for this very reason that I love this material.

Not only eye-catching, bouclé is so versatile throughout the seasons as well. It is warm enough to wear during winter yet a great transition piece for the fall and spring seasons (granted, the colors are appropo).

Personally, I’m loving the pairing of bouclé and the motorcycle jacket. It’s so fresh and a great updated look for today’s up and coming generation of young fashionistas. See some of my other favorites below.

1. Co-ord Bouclé Biker Jacket, $130

2. Co-ord Bouclé Fray Edge Shorts, $76

3. Mango Bouclé Dress, $79.99

4. Collection XIIX Women’s Spacedyed Bouclé Slouch Hat, $10

5. Stella McCartney Falabella Metallic Women Bouclé Fold-Over Tote, $1295
