Let’s get a bit graphic – with prints, I mean!

No doubt about it, black and white is in this season, and I love to see how brands are each taking their own unique spin on the timeless combination. I’m particularly smitten with Ann Taylor Loft’s feminine Trim Front Blouse, which is both sharp and soft in all the right places.

I love the diamond design, which is flirty and chic, and the thin block piping creates a flattering shape. The delicate bell sleeves highlight wrists and arms (perfect for showing off your favorite jewelry!), while the simple neckline ensures that you can wear this piece on its own, or layered underneath your favorite blouse.

I can see this top working well with a darker color palette this time of year, and transitioning well with more colorful pieces in the spring. Want to style this in an unexpected way? Tuck it into a full skirt in a bright color – I’m personally thinking of coral in May, with neutral accessories and hair up in a sleek ponytail.

Très chic!
