Spring in Black and White





One of spring’s biggest trends this year, a black and white color palette is versatile and incredibly easy to wear.  When thinking about this week’s T.J. Maxx challenge, I couldn’t really decide which way I wanted to approach the trend because there are so many ways to do black and white right.  I spent the better half of my time at T.J. Maxx roaming through rows and rows of short dresses and was deciding between a couple when I came across this shirt.  The fabric is the perfect soft jersey, and there’s just something so classic about a striped tee for spring.  (I also always appreciate any white shirt that isn’t overly sheer.)

Then for the bottoms.  My first thought was to pair the striped top with black skinnies, but let’s be honest: sometimes spring calls for a little leg.  The scalloped hem of these black shorts is such an unexpected but welcomed detail.  The final pieces of the puzzle were a snake-embellished crossbody bag and knotted rope sandals that I’ll be wearing all summer.  I love this look for laidback spring weekends and could easily kick it up a notch by adding wedges and a few pieces of statement jewelry.  How will you be incorporating black and white into your spring wardrobe?  Show us by uploading a look via Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and tagging #maxxstyle, and don’t forget to share the designer and price of your T.J.
