Easily the biggest trend of the season is an oldie, but a goodie: black and white.

The classic color combination has been a huge hit among celebrities including Nicole Richie, Olivia Palermo, Emma Stone, Jessica Alba and more, and we can certainly see why!

For starters, there's an endless amount of possibilities to personalize the monochrome look, from keeping it simple with stripes or solid separates (à la color-blocking) to experimenting with fresh prints and patterns. 

Whether your style is dramatic and bold or demure and chic, there's a black-and-white ensemble that will work wonders in your wardrobe. 

For a mod twist, we adore a paneled sheath dress by Alice + Olivia, a two-tone tunic by NYDJ or a luxe pair of designer zigzag pants by Missoni.

Halston's elegant maxi dress exudes elegance at any occasion, while quirky accessories from Kate Spade Saturday, Proenza Schouler and Nicholas Kirkwood promise to never go out of style. 

Would you rock the black-and-white trend?
