Snow Leopard

SS 021113 SnowLeopardStyle COVER

Have you noticed that black and white fashion is canvassed across stores worldwide right now? They come in stripes, spots, geometrics, plus prints including leopard and zebra patterns While fashion week in NYC right now is all about Fall & Winter 2013, for now it’s time to dress for the present.

While the simplicity of styling black and white seems easy enough; there’s still a bit of grey area. Here’s some tricks from a snowy evening here in Zurich showing some of my favorite black & white animal prints including this Zebra bracelet below…

1

1. Walk on the Wild Side ~ While mixing two different species of animal prints in one is a bit of a risk, concur your fashion fears in black & white. Especially accessories. This new Zebra bracelet c/o LuLu-Le.com is one of my new faves and it’s subtle enough for you to mix with any black and white pattern.

2. Tights Tone Down Winter Prints ~ If you’re wearing a black and white patterned dress or skirt, add black tights with black heels to complete the look.

3. Does an Entirely black & white outfit bore you? Feel free to add a pop of color. Some of my favorites include neon and any bright solid shades like this blue cable knit sweater on sale now at H&M.

Q. What do you call an outfit that is Black & White all over Head to Toe? A. Too Much. Mixtures of black and white patterns are splattered all over fashion mags, but too much of a good thing can look tacky. Black heels or platforms with black tights is the best way to create a sleek silhouette from the legs down.

Black & White Basics ~ Start with a statement piece in a B&W pattern and then keep the rest of the look in solids.

    You look gorgeous! I’m in love with those shorts, and the shoes are absolutely lovely. Black and white prints are some of my absolute favorites, and they look so lovely with bright colors, like that gorgeous blue shirt you’re wearing.

    I think I wear black and white pretty much every winter – and summer :) It’s always been my go-to combination for effortless style and I think you wear it beautifully. The pop of blue under your blazer is a gorgeous touch!
