Here at R29, our mission is to take the season's biggest trends and translate them into real, accessible advice. And, since the best way to learn is by example, we've called on some real-life D.C. style stars to tackle one of spring's major motifs — a bold black-and-white palette.
All you have to do? Sit back, watch your new favorite trend in action, and take notes. How's that for the easiest homework assignment ever?
