April in Black and White

 Fresh Stripes with Spring Green

After more than 15 years working in the fashion industry, one thing that comes around every year is black and white in April. It's kind of an industry standard. Usually a clothing group is constructed by designers with a bright accent, but with an emphasis on the graphic love affair of black and white. So, with that in mind, I found a black and white striped top ($50) from Gap. It's classic enough to wear all year, practically everywhere, and when paired with spring green for work and weekend it feels fresh and fun, but serious enough for 9-5.
