A great spring into summer style trend for 2013 is the black and white color combination. I love this since black is a big part of my wardrobe. But adding a pop of white gives it a freshness that takes the black from winter to summer in a flash.
Again, this is an easy fashion trend to follow, as the picture below shows. Just take a basic black maxi dress and add a white flower that you can find on Etsy or in any accessory store. I like the flower because it is a nod to another style trend: florals. Alternatively, just add a white belt or add a white scarf. To dress it up more, add a white blazer, which can be perfect for work or a quick meeting with the preschool teacher. Yet, still an easy dress to chase after the kids.
Another idea is to wear a pair of black shorts and a black tee-shirt. The key is to keep the blacks the same color tone, or add another element, like this shirt that has with some lace detailing to break up the blacks. You can glam it up by having the fabrics more fluid. Then add a pair of black and white heels to keep the glam factor in high gear. Or switch to black and white flats for a more casual take on the outfit, which can be perfect for a lunch out with friends.
These next two outfit ideas are ones that should already be in your closet. Especially the yoga pants. You know you have them. Just put them on with a white tee-shirt but add a black and white scarf. Or put on a pair of white jeans (you can get cheap ones at Old Navy if you are worried about the longevity with kids) and top it off with a black tee-shirt with a print. Then in both cases, splurge on trendy flip flops, like these from Tory Burch to keep the elegance up.
All in all, this is a fresh yet easy trend to follow and whether it is a Old Navy Maxi Dress or a high end pair of flip flops, any Mom can incorporate this look into her wardrobe without much financial investment and can still chase after the kids on the playground. All while looking on trend in the process.
