The black and white trend greets shoppers at Knit Wit

Spring's biggest trend should be delightfully simple to master, especially considering you probably already have its elements hanging in your closet. We're talking about black and white, a trend that's already front-and-center at Chestnut Street's Knit Wit. "After so many seasons of color, black and white seems refreshing," says boutique owner Ann Gitter. "Every designer has a major black and white statement." The boutique's fully stocked in all-things black and white, from the stripes and polka dots of ALC and Kamali to the wordplay blouses of Closed and Equipment.

Another bonus of the trend? It transitions seamlessly between seasons. "What I especially like for the end of winter season is to wear white jeans, a big, black chunky sweater, and black boots," Gitter adds. How will you style the trend this spring? Sound off in the comments.
