Trap Fashion: Black and White Outfits Inspired by Meredith Blake

If you’ve ever seen the movie “Parent Trap,” raise your hand! We’re talking about the 1998 version today,
(although I love the 1961 version, too). If you haven’t ever seen this family-friendly movie, you can watch it for free with a Disney+ subscription or rent it from Amazon Prime. It’s about two twin sisters, Annie and Hallie, who meet for the first time at summer camp and realize they’re long-lost twins. They come up with this crazy plan to switch places and get their parents, who are divorced, back together. The only issue standing in their way is their dad’s girlfriend… Meredith Blake. I had a love-hate relationship with her character because although her attitude was the WORST at times, there’s no denying that her outfits were soooo amazing! Today, I’m channeling her style by showing Black and White Outfits Inspired by Meredith Blake.

Who is Meredith Blake, and What’s Her Style?

Played by Elaine Hendrix, Meredith is the twin’s soon-to-be “evil” stepmom whose chic and sophisticated wardrobe turns heads throughout the movie. She’s known for her polished look, which fits perfectly with her role as a high-powered publicist.

The twins spend the entire movie playing pranks on Meredith in an attempt to get her to cancel the wedding to their father, but this doesn’t stop her from looking like an absolute style icon the entire film! From crisp white dresses to adorable black and white athleisure, these looks are just as timeless and classic today as they were when the movie was made 25 years ago.

    I loved both versions of the parent trap. Black and white is a classic in my book and you look amazing in the outfits in this post, especially the 2 Piece Knit Top High Waist Midi Skirt Set. Being a person over 50, actually over 60, I am a firm believer that both decades are definitely NOT OLD. I believe it is in your attitude, how you feel and live. I appreciate your fashion savvy and look forward to your posts. I hope you are feeling better. Have a wonderful and blessed day.

  16. Love love love black and white. I just ordered some of your pics! Now I need that black hat with white inside, on first pic that Meredith Blake is wearing! Any suggestions?

    1. No, I haven’t seen that hat, but it is gorgeous!

  17. Black and white is a classic combo and also a classy one. Even just a pair of white denim jeans and a black t-shirt is classy. I always feel put together in a black and white outfit. Not to mention it’s sort of a no-brainer when looking for something to wear.

  18. My husband would tell you that my closet is all black and white! Love ALL of these!

  19. What a fantastic concept post! Honestly I always admired her fashion sense as well.

    1. Her attitude was nasty, but her fashions were stunning!

  20. Lol, about the wallpaper. I like it, but it overwhelms that bathroom. One wall would have been better. I love the colored version on your tv. That would make a pretty accent wall.
    I love both versions of the Parent Trap! As a twin, I liked the idea of them finding each other! My twin sister and I wished we were identical so we could switch places and fool people. Lol.

  21. Love ALL these clothes!! Very classy!

  22. Stella Gustafson says:
