Equinox Style: Black and White

The autumnal equinox is this weekend. In fact, it falls squarely on this Sunday. On the equinox, the day and the night are exactly the same length and we're in a perfect balance of light and darkness.

To celebrate this time of balance before we creep into all those long winter nights, we've put together a few looks to help you show off your light or dark side.

Black and white is always a classic, and it's easy to incorporate either -- or both -- into your home and wardrobe. So whether you're all about bright, clean white or you love the deep mystery of black, there's plenty to go around.

White Style:

Mod, geometric deer head

Patterned silver highball set

Rain drip lines throw pillow

Black and white pintucked blouse

Quilted leather Versace Vantias satchel

Do you lean toward the bright, summery side or do you revel in the dark, wintery looks? Of course, you can always have a little of both. After all, that's what the equinox is all about.

I love the contrast of both! I need that black horse head, especially.
