On Trend: Black and White
If there is one trend dominating store racks this season, it is the graphic black and white trend.
The Op Art-inspired looks first came down Marc Jacobs’ spring runway with black and white jailbird stripes and dizzying swirls. The designer was obviously have a love-in moment with the mod era because his collection for Louis Vuitton, also, was an eye-popper with checkerboard patterns in black and white.
This summer, the bold duo combo is vying to cover you from head to toe – from sunhats to pointy toe flats.
But this high-contrast look is pleasing to the eye when the starkness is tempered. It’s best to pick one graphic piece and pair it with solid white or black piece.
