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.”
