One of the biggest trends this season is a classic fashion combination that's been given an update and a twist with fun prints, graphics, lines, and other geometric shapes. Black and white has always been a must-have style staple for every girl and this year it's bigger and more fashionable than ever!

On the runways of New York, Paris, and Milan, black and white contrasts were everywhere. Although the pairing of these two colors is already considered a timeless trend, this year's trend involves giving it a fresh take with color-blocked graphic pieces and thick opposing lines, which still complements the usual elegant and simple feel of this combo. Wear this trend in a bold way by pairing a black and white checkered top with aztec print pants in black and white or go feminine with an abstract floral black and white dress! However you choose to sport this new and improved fashion staple, remember that balance is the key to the perfect black and white ensemble! Want to know how to sport this trend, 2013 style? Check out the slideshow below for some tips from your favorite bloggers, plus black and white pieces you'll want to have in your closet!
