Black & White: Fashion’s New Favorite Color Combo
Many color combos have had their time in the style spotlight but none have had such a revival as black and white. This color combo’s transformation travels as far back as the sixties. With the black and white mini dresses that girls would wear with go go boots. Then moving forward to the 80s where any color pairing was considered color blocking.
With spring approaching, black and white has experienced another revival. This color combo was picked out of the pack for its boldness and classic nature. It was seen continuously on the spring fashion runways and you can expect to see it flooding in a boutique near you.
Black and white may seem dull for the spring and you may be wondering what happened to the obsession with brighter colors. Well don’t be alarmed, bright colors have not gone anywhere. In fact with the popularity of black and white, brighter colors will shine even brighter. Just think of wearing a black and white striped top with some red skinny jeans. Or a black and white striped pant with a bold color jacket for the office. Black and white has the capability of bringing out the best in bold colors.
Considering that these are neutral colors, you probably have a few black and white pieces in your wardrobe already. Now you have a new way of combining those colors. Think of the black and white color combo as your new neutral palette.
