I’m a sucker for bright spring colors, but it’s such a relief to hear that the majority of this spring’s fashions will center around contrasting negative colors: black and white.

As a true fan of the color black (my go to color), this is extremely exciting. So let’s incorporate some of my favorite things into this week’s splurge vs. save: black/white, Beetlejuice stripes, and blazers.

Splurge

Definitely a major splurge, but honestly, how beautiful is this blazer? This Lanvin striped cotton blend blazer ($3,185, net-a-porter.com) is the perfect spring investment piece.

Save

I’d say that this $190 The Outnet Black Fleece Striped Cotton Blazer is more of a save option, don’t you think?

Would you wear a black and white vertical striped blazer?
