Glamour in Black & White

One of the freshest looks for this spring is the pairing of black and white, and there’s no better way to do that than by pairing the classic white button-up with a sexy pair of black shorts. Celebs like Alexa Chung, The City’s Olivia Palmero, Gwyneth Paltrow and British model Daisy Lowe have all been seen rocking this trend on the red carpet .

Palmero wore this trend in a bold and sexy way, with sequined shorts, sky-high black studded heels and a sleek, pulled back hair style. Olivia fashioned the perfect New York look by wearing the style in a sleek and chic way, with just enough glam to make the look turn heads.  Palmero accompanied the look with a large and classicly cut handbag to complete the sophistication of her style.

Palrow’s approach to this style was a more laid-back, California type of sex appeal. The star wore her top loosely unbuttoned, wore her hair down, and accompanied the style with a long silver charm necklace, which all gave the traditionally conservative color combination a more bohemian vibe. Paltrow then dialed up the sex appeal by wearing black pumps and holding a hot silver clutch.

Lowe wore this style in a way all her own by pairing the look with unique everyday pieces. Instead of wearing the color combo conservatively, Lowe paired standout accessories with the style to make her own version of the fashion. Lowe paired the shorts with black tights and mid-calf black lace-up boots for a more alternative version of the style. Lowe also wore a brown belt with a bold buck that stood-out against the rest of her outfit.
