Mixing different trends, styles, prints, and silhouettes is more than half the fun of fashion. It's all about finding the balance when matching different pieces together while being true to your own personal style. This summer, there's a wide variety of trends for you to experiment with but we find that making the black-and-white trend more summer appropriate might possibly be the most challenging one! Since we love a good fashion challenge and we know you do too, we thought of pairing this summer trend with a classic print—florals! The soft and colorful touch of floral prints can instantly brighten up any black and white ensemble for the summer. Here are five looks that you can use as style inspiration when it comes to sporting this fashion combo:

Preppy. Floral pants were a big trend last season and they're still perfect to wear this summer! Make it the focal point of your look by simply wearing a white button down over it, with matching black and white quilted flats. If you're looking to brighten up this look, layer on a complementary colored tee or go with stacks of colored bracelets.

Feminine. If you're looking to wear this combo in just one piece, go with a black and white floral dress! The floral print will counter the seriousness of the black and white combo. Make your look different by choosing to wear a tee underneath your dress, then pair it with a hat and satchel for those busy summer days.

Grunge. Going for a more laid-back and edgy look? Go with a flowy, floral maxi skirt. Pair this with a black and white top and studded hat for the grunge effect. Finish off your outfit with black combat boots and you've got yourself a summer look that's grunge-inspired.

Effortless. If something simple and chic is more your style, simply wear your floral shorts with a simple, sleeveless, white button down paired with black sandals, and sunnies! This look can take you from daily errands to a fun date look.

Polished. Looking for an outfit that you can wear to that intership interview? A white lace top over this floral, black and white pencil skirt is the perfect look! Add neon accessories for more touches of summer!

As black and white combination is starting to trend again why not add some floral details like the photos above? It will surely give a different look from casual.

So how would you style this combo? Share it with guys by leaving a comment!
