Black & White: An A-list Weekend Look

Black and white are surely already staples in your wardrobe, especially for work and nights out. Whether they are used in color blocking, florals, stripes, or plaids, the graphic color combination is just as important to our casual wardrobes – giving new life to our favorite jeans, casual skirts, and colorful shorts (yes, some day it will be warm enough in all parts of the country to wear shorts). We thought there were some amazing finds in this everlasting color story for fall and winter…but look at the new things we’ve found to take us through spring.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed our work picks (Tuesday) or after 5 favorites (Wednesday), check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

Splendid - Marble Thermal Henley

The thermal knit gives this Splendid Henley a light cotton sweater feel, perfect for the season and the months to come. The black and white color combination really shows off the texture, and helps conceal any lumps-and-bumps we sometimes worry about when wearing a thinner tee. You can leave the snaps closed as shown, but we suggest leaving a couple open for a relaxed, open neckline. Splendid is known for their super soft knits and this is no exception. It’s the perfect weekend top with your favorite broken-in jeans or crisp white ones.

Joie - Eszter Stripe Linen V-Neck Sweater
Joie's easy fit marries perfectly with the casual style of this linen sweater. The detail of finishing the black stripe pattern with a pop of simple grass green is such a little touch - with so much beautiful impact. It looks great with your favorite jeans. You can even tuck just a bit of the front in to wear with boyfriend jeans for some off-handed styling. The linen fabric allows for it to be worn a bit dressier with simple black pants and flats, too.

We all love Vince. What’s not to love? The fabrics are amazing, the fit is easy, and the style is timeless and modern, all at the same time. So, when it’s time to invest in a simple tee you’ll wear for a long time to come, this layered black and white option is sure to please. The layered hem creates a forgiving fit around the waist and ensures no additional styling on your part. Available in XXS-XL, anyone can throw it on with your favorite jeans or slouchy knit pants, and be ready for the day.

Townsen, a contemporary line known for their knits, makes us actually feel confident about wearing horizontal stripes on a white ground – yes, it’s true. And we know that’s not always easy. But the sash detail that culminates in a knot at the hip is the flattering detail that forgives all. This detail carries to the back (click through the ‘shop it’ button to see what we mean) of the dress, doing wonderful things for the view from behind, whether you’re working with an “asset” that’s flat or full. The fabric is light and soft, with a drape that's not clingy. It even has a little leather-like trim at the neckline, that can help dress it up a little for a casual dinner. This is a little white dress worth trying. Add a cardigan or hoodie when it’s cooler, with a little pair of sneakers. And switch to sandals later.

Free People’s bohemian and easy-fitting style is on full display with this dress. And we love it. If you are generally more polished, this is a great way to work a little playful boho chic into your wardrobe. There is elastic at the waist, so you don’t need a belt – though we prefer adding one, as shown in the picture. The loose open neckline looks great with a black tank or cami underneath. On vacation, it’s even great over a bathing suit when a day at the beach turns in to an easy dinner in town. From the picture, you can see it works with boots for now, but the material is light and fluid so sandals look great, too.

On the weekends, sometimes we just want to be comfy and throw on a pair of leggings. The problem is finding a top to pair with them that covers our bums. Many hoodies – the ideal cozy partner to a pair of leggings – have a banded bottom and just aren’t long enough. So we were thrilled to find this Alternative Apparel hoodie with the ideal drape hem that eliminates this problem. You can see from the picture, it’s great with leggings. And the marled black/white creates the perfect grey to go with black leggings. The brand’s super soft, organic fabric is just the thing for a day of lounging or running errands in style.

Another play on a sweatshirt, this time from Madewell, it's actually made from a double-faced linen/cotton fabric, elevating it from a basic sweatshirt. Turn up the sleeves to show off the black inside fabric. Click through the ‘shop it’ button so you can see the other key element in elevating this easy-fitting weekend top…the back has a pleat detail and the hem has a high-low shirttail hem that effortlessly works tucked in with boyfriend jeans or untucked with skinny jeans or leggings. From XXS-XL, if you are between sizes, size down – it’ll still be a relaxed fit.

Just because you’re dressing casually, doesn’t mean your look can’t still be polished. This Lafayette 148 New York is the definition of an easy, yet sophisticated, sweater – perfect for a brunch with friends or a casual Friday at the office. The modern fit is relaxed, but not slouchy so it pairs with slim trousers or dark wash skinny jeans beautifully. And since it’s from Lafayette, feel confident that this cotton sweater will last for seasons to come.

Eileen Fisher - The Fisher Project Slouchy Chambray Ankle Pants
Sure, jeans are always a casual day option, and Eileen Fisher has a wonderful play on jeans with these black chambray drawstring trousers. It’s the perfect combination of several spring trends: 1. Black and white - the black chambray material has white thread woven throughout; 2. Denim - chambray is often considered a lighter weight version of denim; 3. Athletic inspiration - the drawstring waist and looser fit that tapers at the ankle is reminiscent of our favorite sweatpants. The lyocell® fabric is soft as can be – you’ll live in these. And they’re so versatile. They’re shown here dressed up with heels, but we love them with a pair of flats, or pretty sandals. A simple tee, cotton sweater, or white button down look fabulous with these.

At Mark Shale, we’ve been longtime fans of Michael Stars. The easy fit and soft fabrics make it hard not to love. This cotton, open kimono sweater is only offered in two sizes – XS/S and M/L – so determining your size of this modern and relaxed style is easy. The black and creamy white combination looks great over a simple black or white tank, but also works nicely with some color so feel free to play – indigo blue, faded red, military green, you can use your imagination. We love it with jeans, but it can be worn with black cotton trousers and a tank for a casual Friday look, too.

Did you know Splendid started making shoes? In their same easy, casual style, they are becoming a great resource for some casual sandals, like these black and white haircalf ones, at a really great price. The molded footbed make them a great option to slip on for a day of shopping or a casual brunch with friends. They look great with shorts, rolled-up boyfriend jeans, and easy dresses, too.
