Style Stars: featuring Short is the New Black

by Lauren


Hi everyone! I’m Justine, beauty + lifestyle blogger over at Short is The New Black and I couldn't be happier to share one of my favorite fall trends with you all! If you know me even the slightest bit, you know that black and white (emphasis on the black) has always been a huge part of my wardrobe.  Aside from the fact that every girl should own a LBD – the black and white color combination can be a beautifully bold take on your favorite cocktail dress or basic top. More importantly, black and white looks great on everyone. Whether you pair it with a bright lip or statement necklace, the duo is universally flattering.

When I saw this DV by Dolce Vita Dress on Piperlime, I knew I had to have it. The idea of mix-matching prints is PERFECT and is everywhere this fall. The vegan leather bodice is a fun way to give this dress the opportunity to be worn for work or for play depending on how you style it. I chose to pair this look with one of my favorite fall “go-to” lipsticks: MAC ‘Rebel’ and my new Madden Girl Booties.

What is your take on black + white? 

We had a blast sipping cappuccinos at Nellcote and have to thank them for allowing us to photograph this lovely shoot in their chic space. We love Justine's take on the black and white trend! How fabulous are those booties!?We wanna know, what is your favorite way to style this classic color combo this season?
