Spring 2013 Trends Day 7: Black And White



We are on the last day of the seven days of fashion! It is a bit bittersweet, but I am sure you all were wondering about the last trend I have examples of; it's black and white! This year, it is not truly just black and white that is a hot trend, but the hard and soft aspect as well. Hard black lines or leather accents against soft white chiffon, ruffles, or cotton. They are saying that this movement is loosely based off the popular "50 Shades Of Gray" book as well as the artistic works of famed fashion photographer Helmut Newton's iconic black-and-white photography. I hope you enjoy this trend, because it is my personal favorite!

  9. I love the b&w trend! But I have a pretty heavy background in architecture, so that probably explains it..
