Why: You feel like you are drowning in this season’s sea of pink. Black and white has always stood for simple elegance, but never fails to fall victim to an unwritten set of fashion rules; black is relegated to evening wear, winter fashions and funerals, while it’s considered a major fashion faux pas (“Oh, the humanity!”) to wear white before Memorial Day.
This season Ann Taylor’s March Collection proves that black and white is the right thing to wear any time of the year, any time of the day. The Banded Spectator Strapless Dress ($158) is perfect for the gal on the go who wants a great day-to-evening outfit. Other pieces include these basic, yet classy Margo Straight Leg Pinstripe Pants ($98) and this feminine Cotton 3/4 Sleeve Medallion Print Wrap ($68) that will let you show the world black and white are indeed spring colors.
