Leelou Trim Detail Shift Dress
Diane von Furstenberg
Sold by: Diane von Furstenberg

Fit Guide
This Diane von Furstenberg dress will be your go-to for work to a lovely dinner. The knit material has great stretch and is mid-weight, so it works most of the year. For now, you can see it looks great with tights, and come spring, go bare legged. (It will hit between mid-thigh and just above the knee on most ladies.) The white piping detail at the waist, neckline, and shoulders create subtle interest that not only accentuates the waist, yet it is still versatile enough that you can wear a black, white or colorful accent with this dress – like a blazer, sweater, or statement jewelry to dress it up.

Black & White: Now, Forever & For Every Occasion

Black and white. It’s the most important “non-color” color story of the season. And you can take that to mean any season, really. It’s a trend that is just as important in the upcoming spring months as it was this past fall - and continues to be as we are deep into winter. Why? It can be classic or boldly modern. It can create wonderful prints and patterns or be used in demure blocks of “color”. It certainly goes with everything – and can be worn everywhere. From a conservative work place to a formal event, or while lounging on your couch, there’s something for everyone. Of course, we love this versatility, as it is makes shopping so much more justifiable - where it now and into the warmer months. What’s not to love?

Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, to see more of our favorites for work, after 5, and casual dressing.
If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

Slip on sneakers have made a big comeback over the last few seasons, and Loeffler Randall’s high quality and design creates the ideal comfortable shoe option. The perforated black leather and white sole make these spring and summer ready. Wear them with your jeans and shorts of course, but they create an effortlessly chic look with a pair of wide leg linen or cotton trousers, or a spring dress. You will not be disappointed.

Not only is black and white a modern color combination, a graphic grid pattern is a fresh must-have way to wear it. A simple scarf is a simply easy way to update your existing wardrobe – you can wear this Banana Republic scarf with any neutral, of course, but it looks just as good with a colorful outfit. If you want to try mixing and matching patterns, this will look great with a black and white polka dot or a floral grounded in some black or white. But throw it on with your jeans and tee and you’ve got a pulled together outfit to run errands.

Wow, is this dress a flatterer. The surplice neckline that merges into a wrap waistband creates the most slimming silhouette. And the sleeve hits at just the right spot on the arm without being binding. Whether you have a curvy or straight figure, this dress creates that hourglass we are all striving for. The jersey fabric is endlessly versatile, so you can dress this up with strappy heels and fine jewelry or make it more casual with chunky jewelry and a pretty flat. For very good reason – wait ‘til you see the price – this one is going fast. If your size is sold out through the ‘shop it’ button, try Macy’s for additional sizes, 0-14. It’s a contemporary fit, but with some nice give in the stretchy material.

Patterned pants are a great update to your spring wardrobe. And Splendid’s version is praise-worthy. We know some women shy away from patterned bottoms for fear it won’t flatter. But the truth is, in the right fit and pattern, they work on every body type. Splendid’s black and white floral print is small and even, which is the key to a slimming pant pattern. Pair that with the wide legs and elastic waist, they create a nice long line, and you are simply going to love the way they look on you. You’ll live in them with a simple black or white tee or tank and your favorite flat sandals or flips flops.

Nic + Zoe - Pebble Pieced Twirl Knit Twirl Dress
Nic+Zoe always has a way with knit patterns, and this black and white intarsia design cleverly angles to a v, creating the slimmest silhouette possible (especially at the hips, thank you very much). The solid black waist detail and cap sleeve just add to that effect, and in sizes XS-XL, this stretchy a-line dress looks amazing on everyone. It’s stylish and timeless at the same time.

The simple white stripe on this blouse is also simply striking. The effect is bold, yet elegant, with any black or white pair of slim pants or pencil skirt. If you're not comfortable with the open surplice neckline, add a black or white cami, but we love the sophisticated allure of wearing it as is. Parker's fit is contemporary but this blouse is easy and drapes elegantly - a beautiful fit for most ladies.

Vince’s modern, clean aesthetic is perfectly represented in this simply stylish striped cotton dress. In Vince’s typical loose fit (size down, especially if you are petite), you’ll get an easy fit that still looks polished with it’s hip pockets and simple silhouette. It looks great with tights or without, we especially love it with simple flats or flat sandals once the weather starts warming up.
