With Fashion Week on the rise, spring trends are blossoming up everywhere. Another hot trend is black and white print. Instead of pairing a basic white shirt with a slim black pencil skirt for a simple work outfit, shake things up with a printed top in spring’s go-to neutrals for a timelessly cool combo.

Hannah Gettleman is a bubbly twenty-something living in Chicago. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Journalism. Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
