Black & White trend

 

Hello NSMV readers! Some things just look better in black and white: old movies, delicious Oreo cookies, Instagram photos, and now, your Spring wardrobe. No two tones play better together. Pairing black and white separates is a bold statement, that’s achievable for fashion lovers everywhere, regardless of your budget and accessibility to fast fashion stores. A comfy pair of white denim and a casual or dressy black top is a super easy and virtually effortless way to dominate this trend. If you are a little daring try mixing textures to keep things a little interesting. The bonus is that both black and white work well with colors, so you can re-wear your pieces summer, fall, and even winter. Let’s face it you can’t go wrong with classic black and white!

Maison Martin Margiela x H&M Plexi Wedge Booties

Designer capsule collections never really bothered me, mostly because I found most items to be way too overpriced and . Maison Martin Margiela x H&M was no different for me. I know many consider Margiela to be a fashion visionary, but I finnd most of his clothes simply unwearable. It’s just not my style. However, I always used to have a soft spot for his shoe line and the shoes from Margiela’s capsule collection for H&M really resonated with me. My absolute favorite style were the wedge booties with the lucite wedge heel but $350 for a pair of H&M shoes? Uh, thank you, but no, thank you!

While I think $171.99 is still quite a lot of money for an H&M-quality item, these lucite heel wedge booties by Choies which look almost identical to the Margiela x H&M wedges are still about 50% cheaper and made of real leather, too, just like the real Margielas. Plus, you can save another 20% with the promo code above which cuts down the price to a reasonable $137.59 (the store offers free worldwide shipping, too). Now that’s a deal, right?

Kate Moss has been wearing her new sunshine Gloucester Croco clutch in crocodile-style calfskin from the “Kate Moss for Longchamp” collection for Spring 2013. During the day, paired with a leopard print or at night with a black fringe dress, she always rocks the place with style.
