Black-And-White Looks That Are Red Hot!

When it comes to fashion, you’ll be seeing things in black and white this spring — literally. Though springtime usually means the emergence of pastel-colored dresses and separates, dainty floral prints, and gingham or checkered patterns, one the most dominant fashion trends for Spring 2013 is marked by an absence of exuberant color. With designers citing inspirations ranging from 1920s Film Noir titles to  the erotically charged photographs of the late Helmut Newton, this season’s duds explore the tenacity and power that can be conjured up via the clever juxtaposition of black and white, two seemingly opposite hues. Spring fashions, then, are characterized by strong silhouettes, bold and graphic prints, contrasting textures, color blocked details, geometric cuts and lines, and a hefty dose of attitude. Below, you’ll find some of our favorite garments, handbags, jewelry pieces, and shoes that celebrate this modern take on the timeless duo-chromatic combination.
