Black and white are huge color trend this season. Today I picked four of my favorite looks incorporated this combination to show you the versatility of this classic color palette. As you can see from above, these three stylish ladies, in their 20s, 30s and 40s, showed us four completely different styles of black and white: from Gwyneth Paltrow’s understated classic to Alessandra Ambrosio’s rock chic edge to Rihanna’s carefree spirit.

First two looks are from 40-year-old Gwyneth Paltrow. From the knee-length dress to oversized boyfriend blazer and shorts combo, she showed us how to be trendy yet age-appropriate.

Another thing we can learn from this queen of understated elegance is the “less is more” beauty. She always keeps her jewelry to a minimum. But it is that just right amount of luxe glamour makes her stand out.

Like black and white, another “old trend” that gets updated this year is jumpsuit. The effect is even more powerful when these two meet, like this IRO version on Alessandra Ambrosio (below). I love how this Victoria’s Secret Angle brought out the edgy side of black and white by adding punk accessories. Besides a studded clutch, another piece you can’t miss now is a pair of safety pin earrings!

The most important thing Rihanna showed us from her outfit below is how to make a trend your own. Here the hint of sexiness, unexpected juxtaposition and carefree attitude totally reflect her own personal style in this monochrome canvas.
