Can Zebra Work?


 Old Navy Suede Flats, H&M Zebra Pant, Project Social T-Shirt, Past season Gap Blazer- Similar


I hope everyone had a great weekend. One trend I can't seem to get off my mind is the black and white combo. It seems that I been noticing a lot of the black and white striped pants and while I love them I wanted something with a little more edge. I came across these pants from Express and Zara
 while I loved them very much, I prefer these zebra pants at H&M for $19.95. So, to wear them to work I paired them with a classic black blazer and white t-shirt. As if the pants weren't enough edge, I paired them with Old Navy neon yellow flats.





Then for a nighttime look, I paired these pants with a black leather jacket, black heels and yummy Zara velvet hot pink shirt I thrifted for $5.00. By changing your jackets and shoes, you can go from a daytime look to a nighttime look.






Do you like the black and white combo trend? What is your favorite color for spring?

  1. Of course I LOVE this tend. I love the first outfit especially. The casual tee and blazer look great..you did a perfect job styling, anything more would look tacky.

  2. YES YES YES. Love both options, but that hot pink velvet shirt makes me swoon. Or thwoon, if I had a lithp. You and I are on the same wavelength, because I have a post on deck for this Friday on black and white stripes. Have a good one, mama.

  6. I'm not wearing much black and white yet because I hardly own any white! But you're rocking it, especially with the pink top.

  8. Oh, yes. You make it work. I especially love it with the pink!
    I'm intrigued by orange and navy. Not sure if it's my fave, but I'm liking what I'm seeing and it looks very new and modern.

  10. I agree: zebra can totally work, especially the way you've done it. I like the black & white trend on others but don't think it suits me - I'm too boho to do without colour! :)

  14. I was just visiting the new Kate Spade shop today... she has plenty of black and white prints with a hot pink accent... you are always on top of the trends and for much less than the $388 price tag I saw today.. this look makes you really resemble a movie star.. seriously, it's like cool, hollywood style... the shiny pink shirt just sets it off... at
