Like Jack and Lazaro, sandals with trousers, and dark chocolate with marshmallows (it's delicious!), there's something about the pairing of black and white that just feels right. And yeah, the achromatic look is a classic. It evokes Old Hollywood glamour and visions of Cary Grant in a tux. (We're not complaining.) But lately, designers are playing with unexpected prints and exaggerated shapes that give this timeless combo a fresh twist.
We snapped a few of the most eye-catching black-and-white pairings that hit the streets this week, and we've got the lowdown on what makes 'em work. Even better? We found all the elements you need to make these looks your own (without spending two months' rent). Flip through our street-style slideshow for inspiration, then click over to Target to snag the pieces you need to rock the black-and-white trend your way.
