Career Guide: How To Wear Black & White At Work

How to wear black & white at work

My favorite trend this spring is black and white. I love seeing the trend on the runway just as much as I like to see it hanging in my closet. There is something so crisp, clean and professional about it, especially when you work it into your office wear.

I styled the black and white trend in a very simple way; trousers and a chic blazer. The black blazer has a flat lapel with white pipping and the pants have a large gorgeous white panel down the sides. The added touches of white are a great distraction from your everyday tradition black pant. I threw on these amazing new shoes, my sunnies, grabbed my go-to bag for work and of course swiped on some lipstick for an easy and on trend office ready look!
