Trend Topic: Black & White

by Jessica Sturdy on January 14, 2013

Now that the new year is upon us and we’ve kind of settled back into our routines, let’s start talking Spring Trends! Can you believe that NYFW is in just a few weeks?! I surely can’t! I’m not so sure I am ready to start talking about next fall’s trends already, but maybe it will help if we hash out what we’ll be seeing for the 2013 spring and summer seasons. What can I say? I like to go in order.

Nine West Color Block Pumps / Michael Kors Black Watch / Madewell Striped Sweatshirt / Madewell Tote / Rowen Pumps / Nine West Cut-Out Pumps / Betsey Johnson Bow Studs / Sequin Color Block Bangle

Not exactly re-inventing the wheel with this “trend,” as it is pretty standard combination year round, but we’ll be seeing a lot of Black & Blanco this spring and summer.

JRStyle Tip: Since black & white is essentially a blank canvas, have some fun with it. Pops of neons, metallics, and/or leopard are highly encouraged!

Love black and white. It is such a classic combination and I totally agree with pairing with a pop of color. My favorite is the bow stud earrings.

i am kind of obsessed with shoes that have one color on the front and another on the back. the duality for remixing purposes gives you two looks. you can pick up either of the colors for the purpose of the outfit. loving it.

I love classic black and white! I have a graphite watch that I wear all the time, so I can’t wait to pair it with some basics!
