Spring Trends: Nylon’s Rachael Wang Shows Us How to Wear Black & White

Does anyone know the ins and outs of trends better than the fashion editors who help distill them? Our thoughts exactly. And since spring fashion has officially arrived, we’ve tapped some of the industry’s chicest pros for the inside scoop on how to incorporate right-this-minute pieces into your wardrobe all season in our spring trends series.

First up is Nylon’s Fashion Market Director, Rachael Wang, who’s fallen particularly hard for one of spring’s biggest stories: Black and white. “What I love about the trend this season is that it doesn’t feel mod or retro at all — the shapes are modern and the fabrics are innovative,” she says. Try her graphic, mix-and-match approach, or test the waters with a bit of sleek color-blocking: “You don’t have to go all out. Try beige accessories to break up the starkness, and err on more white than black.”

Things Personal Style Bloggers Love

The Pose: Jane Aldrige of Sea of Shoes, Keiko Lynn, Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller

Those nothing-to-wear mornings suddenly suck a little less when you have an arsenal of outfit inspiration courtesy of our favorite personal style bloggers. But after a few hours down the rabbit hole that is the fashion blogosphere, we find ourselves with a bit of déjà vu: Maybe it’s something in the New York City water supply, but it seems like every gal worth her style-blogging swag has suddenly adopted a pair of reflective rainbow sunnies, a boyfriend who’s handy with a Nikon, and a signature stance (see the “Oh, Just Looking at My Shoes” pose above for reference).
