At Beauty Blitz, Black is Back - With His Good Friend, White

Word to the wise: when Polly Blitzer, beauty industry insider, throws a happy hour from 5-8 pm, do NOT show up fashionably late at 7:45. A bouncer will reject you at the door, and you will get in only by begging and promising to be brief. That said, you should definitely wear black and white to such an event–I'm pretty sure I was eventually ushered into the Beauty Blitz Happy Hour this week at New York's W Hotel only because my clothes happened to match the crowd's. With my star-patterned black-and-white skirt, bright blouse, and black short-sleeved cardigan, I was one of six or seven sporting that classic color scheme. So while I didn't have a camera to capture exactly what these trendy fashion mavens were wearing, I did have my trusty journalist's pad to jot down the looks. Here are some of the variations of black and white I managed to glimpse at as the crowd shuffled out:

Stripes have definitely been big for a few seasons now, and this Line sweater ($115) keeps the look interesting with 3/4-length sleeves and boatneck.

BCBG

Mid-length patterned skirts like this casual MaxMara Adelchi wrap skirt ($490) are one hot commodity.

polkadot  

And this great Donna Karan polka-dot skirt ($1,295) with garnish-sleeved blouse ($595) makes for one striking ensemble. It's made modern by the high waist and exposed tulle underlay at the hem.  

 Jacobs

But my favorite outfit of the night was a very simple black dress with just a touch of white detail–the woman wearing it looked so elegant, but stylish at the same time. You can get the same look with this Marc Jacobs crepe tuxedo dress ($995). The bold geometric shapes make the dress a stunner, even in black and white, while the clean lines and thin belt keep it classic.
