From Catwalk to High Street: Black and White

Happy Friday everyone! Today I've got a fab trend alert for you! After a warm-coloured winter of oxbloods and purples, black and white is officially back as a trend for Spring 2013 (not that it really went away!). Seen on the catwalks of designers such as Mark Jacobs, Jill Sander and Ralph Lauren, this spring's monochrome look is all about stark contrast - less polka dot and more colour block (though of course polka dots are not to be ignore!). Black and white is definitely one of my favourite combinations, although in writing this, it has come to my attention that I have seriously been neglecting it recently. So what better a reason to riffle through the wardrobes for your favourite black and white items and accessories and play them of each other in stark opposition!

Black and white combinations are literally endless! Stripes, colour blocking, prints, spots - anything can be used to create a stunning monochrome look. For a simple but eye catching look, why not try teaming a plain black top with plain white bottoms (skirt, trousers whatever!) or visa versa. With black and white being wardrobe staples for most, this is definitely one of the easier trends to try out this spring! But if you do fancy adding a few extra items to your black and white collection, see below for some fab bargains!
