Stockholm Fashion Week has come to a close, and all the while, photographer Søren Jepsen was on the ground capturing the city’s most stylish. Between bright colors, flashy prints, and of-the-moment accessories, it was those seemingly simple looks that stood out. Showgoers opted for a lot of black-and-white pieces, from handbags and boots to knitwear and suits. Combining the colorless hues is a modern interpretation of the effortlessly minimalist style we often see out of Scandinavia; however, instead of camel and gray neutrals, it was bolder (yet still minimalist-approved) black and white.
On the fall runways, we might have seen colorfully collaged garments, glamorous reemergence partywear, and poppy-bright aughts-inspired style, but this group of street style stars gave us fall-fashion outfit inspiration that is a little easier to digest (and to wear too). Mixing versatile pieces such as ivory jeans, black outerwear, or white button-ups will always be a reliable recipe for seasonless, cool style.
A Horizontal Approach
The sailor stripe knit is a wardrobe staple in its own right—it looks good with everything from a white maxiskirt to denim.
For a polished look, stick to one metal.
Black accoutrements pair well with white suit separates.
Pile on a few different shades of white in various materials for a uniform look that doesn’t lack texture.
The White Accessories
This fall, swap your traditional black boots or handbags for bright white versions instead.
Play up the black-and-white pairing with pieces that combine the two for you.
Blue jeans are also neutral in our book.
