The stark combination of black and white has been in fashion forever, but what's new this spring is how we are wearing it. The great thing about the opposites is that you probably already have a few pieces in your closet. Here, five ways to wear the minimalist colors this season, and check out our gallery below of 26 celebrities who have stunned in black and white, with nary a zebra reference to be heard.
1. Do the polka...dots, of course. Channel 1950s style in a white skirt suit adorned with black polka dots, or, if you're really brave, wear separates in polka dots of different sizes. The graphic patterns will have people looking twice.
2. Go wild. Try black and white zebra print, mixed with a checkered print. Crazy? Maybe, but the contrasting patterns are anything but boring.
4. Accent your look with bold red lips. What's black and white and red all over? You, and it's super chic.

5. Push the boundaries with pops of color. If you're going to go monochromatic, why not throw in a neon accessory, just for fun?
