This spring, it’s all about black and white. Whether showing monochromatic white garments with subtle black accents, bold color blocking with blacks and whites, or black-and-white prints, designers such as Oscar de la Renta, Milly, Balmain and Jenni Kayne all embraced the yin-and-yang trend on their spring runways — which means everyone else will be following suit shortly.
And since failing to accessorize an outfit leaves things as incomplete as omitting the final ingredient of a recipe, after you have your perfectly on-trend black-and-white ensemble, you need to find the right jewelry, shoes and purse for it. But before you reach for those pops of color that have been everyone’s go-to for the last few seasons, why not incorporate black and white into your accessories as well? It’ll create a head-to-toe monochrome look straight off the runway.
