Trend Spotlight - White & Black Shirtdresses

A great spring trend that I've seen trickling down into stores such as Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe is the white & black shirtdress. Most likely inspired by higher end lines such as 3.1 Phillip Lim and See by Chloé, they're a fresh alternative to a crisp white blouse and black pencil skirt. The versions that I've spotted are adorned with ruffles, pintucking, and other delicate details. Below I'm wearing Forever 21's take on the trend, which includes handy pockets for an effortless, casual look. The lightweight chiffon top is perfectly balanced by the heavier satin of the skirt. Bright accessories give the polished look a playful edge.
