CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- It's sophisticated, glamorous, edgy and beautiful. It's cutting edge or it's timeless. It works at the office, it can be flirty and fun at a weekend picnic, or it can exude feminine beauty at a cocktail party.
These two colors -- often considered not colors -- can be worn in many ways and represent a variety of moods and styles. Black-and-white fashions look fantastic on everyone, so no one should miss out. Here are a few of the many ways you can rock the black-and-white trend:
The trend is so popular, it's easy to find black-and-white fashions and accessories on any budget at many retailers in the Charleston area. Our models showcase the variety of looks and moods that can be represented with only black and white through fashions from Charlotte Russe, New York & Company and White House | Black Market, all stores in the Charleston Town Center Mall.
The best advice I was ever given (in fashion and life) was to wear what makes you feel confident and attractive. If you feel attractive, fashionable and beautiful, that's the sweet spot. What you feel is what you present to others. It's who you are that you're allowing to shine through.
Style comes from within and clothes and accessories express it. Lubov Azria, chief creative officer for BCBG MaxAzria, says, "Confidence is the ultimate accessory." One of our featured models, Brooke Pauley Lord, shared that quote a few days ago and added, "Now those are words to live by," and I completely agree.
So ladies and gents, get yourself out there. Try different trends. Don't be afraid to try something new, something classic, something edgy. Experiment and find the way you can express your inner beauty in an outward way.
