Fashion Friday: Simple as Black and White

In past summers, we’ve celebrated The Black Dress and The White Dress. But we also know sometimes you’ve got to be a little more bold than black or white. Thankfully, the twosome produces a stunning, chic, and modern look fit for warm summer months during the day as well as cocktail hour. In fact, the The Black & White Dress can be more edgy, impactful, artistic, and modern. And yet, with all its modernity, black and white is the most classic of combinations. Here are our five favorite looks for a modern take on an age-old couple.
