Blog: Style is Eternal
What do you like the most about this trend?
It's been awhile since this trend was brought to life. It's so nice to see the black and white being popularized again. It's like the Audrey Hepburn era is back, that age where everyone looks so sophisticated and edgy.
How do you build your outfit around it?
Well, this trend is really not my style. So I did my own twist to it by doing an edgy outfit instead of the girly black and white, but of course still sticking to the trend.
How do you balance your outfit to avoid making it look over-the-top?
I try to keep the prints to a minimum because I believe too much print will really make you look over-the-top. So I toned down my outfit by wearing a striped black and white bandage skirt, and a plain black top, with black booties and paired it with a black boyfriend jacket to make the look more edgy.
Can you give tips on how to pull off this trend?
Don't go over-the-top. You can still follow this trend without going over-the-top. And the good thing about this trend is that you can play with it, you can go edgy, sophisticated, and corporate.
