H&M's latest trend story casts Joan Smalls as the face of its black and white — and totally romantic — new narrative. The retailer proves that the season's must-have color duo is hardly two-dimensional in its aptly titled Romantic Edge lookbook. The looks showcase the supermodel in both smart, snappy black and white prints and softer white dresses and lace, as well as tough-girl (faux) leather jackets. It's easy to get lost just staring at the gorgeous photography (like those shots of Miss Smalls making her way down a flower-covered stairway), but you won't want to lose sight of the styling lessons at work here. Keep clicking for a little H&M-guided how-to in mixing prints and pulling off the hard-meets-soft approach to dressing — it's all inside.
