Black & White in Fashion for Spring

I'm working on making a statement in black and white for Spring.... Imagine a crisp, white blouse with black pants and already you feel  "lighter" and brighter, elegant, and certainly in style. I suggest a couple of choices for accessorizing. The first is a bolder chunky style, and for a second look, try pairing your outfit with a more intricate bib-style necklace. Or go for a bohemian look with a mix of lace and pattern, a la Restored by Design!
