Celebs Are Moving Away From The Color-Block Trend & Wearing Black & White Ensemble This Spring 2013 Season


Reality star/shoetique owner Evelyn Lozada and her daughter Shaniece are covering the latest issue of Rolling Out magazine. Evelyn wore a $352 Parker ‘Reef’ Silk Blazer paired with the matching $253 Parker ‘Parlor’ Silk Pants. By the blazer at Nordstrom and the silk pants are also available at Nordstrom.

For the Spring 2o13 season, celebs are moving away from the color-blocked trend and dressing in a simple black & white ensemble. Personally, I am all for color-blocked, but lately, I caught myself wearing more black & white than usually. A pair of white sneakers or pumps/sandals is always good to have in the Spring, especially after Memorial Day. Black & white looks good for just about any occasion. Below are a few celebs dressed in black & white. Who outfit do you like the best?
