Black and White Dress for Work


Today, I’m thrilled to be sharing my latest outfit found at T.J. Maxx. This week’s trend is black and white. Usually when I think of spring, pastels, brights, and florals come to mind. However, this year black and white is really popular. This is a simple trend to partake in because it can be done in so many different ways. You can go bold with larger blocks of black and white. Another option is finding an article of clothing that has a black and white pattern, as I have done here with this black and white dress.

For me, this outfit was really fun to put together because my local T.J. Maxx had so many great options. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw some of my fabulous finds. Two of my favorite things I found were a white eyelet blazer and a tribal print top. It was a very hard decision, but ultimately I decided on this printed dress. I went with the dress because I have noticed that my closet is lacking them. This particular one is a great length that is perfect for work, so I know I will get a lot of use out of it.

My personal rule when wearing black and white is to add a pop of color somewhere. This can be done through jewelry, a great bag, or shoes. In this instance, I went with a pair of green pumps. I always love adding a fun colored pair of heels to my closet.

    That dress is fantastic! I love black and white – it’s a trend that pretty much everyone can partake in, likely with pieces they already own. I’m wearing a black and white dalmatian print cardigan today . That’s my contribution!
