Year after year, “it” colors are hailed as the “new black,” but as trends come and go, one thing remains constant: black is always an in fashion choice. However, too much black, too often, can get a bit drab, especially as nature’s colors begin to emerge with spring’s warmer weather. 

The trick to keeping black fresh and fun this season is adding elements in the ultimate contrast — white — to turn classic, staple pieces into head-turning outfits. No one mastered this in their wardrobe choices more elegantly than silver screen darling and style icon, Audrey Hepburn. The actress and activist’s consistent, graceful style featured classic pieces in simple color palettes.

01907 shopped Vinnin Square stores to capture Hepburn’s style in these anything-but-basic black and white ensembles to show off this spring.
