Spring 2013 has arrived for the fashion hungry consumer to appreciate and replicate. Fashionably speaking, there isn’t anything as visually stimulating as the colors black and white. Separately, they deliver a message of their own. White being one of stark innocence and simple clarity. Black, one of slimming subtlety and classic dependability. This Spring, expect a pairing of bold color and patterns involving these popular colors and taking over the colorblocking trend in a fresh new way. Putting these two bold and forever staple colors together brings a powerhouse punch to Spring fashion.
Black and white is eye catching. The colors are at opposite ends of the color spectrum, thus have the highest contrast of any two colors in the world. So, when these catch the eye, they don’t let go. This is an advantage for Spring 2013, because forgettable fashion just wouldn’t be in fashion. Black and white are dynamic together. The ideal pairing for a great shot of color on another part of the outfit. Perhaps those excellent color blocked pumps would pop with a black and white dress. Or pull out the bright trend on handbags from last season and make your independent style statement.
Black and white create a visual interest when swirled together. Prints are huge again this season. From checks to mad plaids and geometric shapes and abstract works, expect a busy Spring for the eyes. Prints are friends for those who could use some shaping or leaning of the figure. The print has no defined end or beginning, thus creating the illusion of an even shape. No problem spots will stand out, just the print.
Black and white will forever be a classic look. Think about the spectator shoe. This look is still very popular and just doesn’t fade away. Taking the best of these colors together creates a woman who has all the answers to any fashion emergency. Pulling together those separates that are staples in every closet, maybe the black trousers with a great button down blouse makes just the right move at any possible moment in the day. Billowy and angelic is a great trend for shirts, so keeping it light on top may mean layering a cami for sheer support and coverage.
Style changes often. Spring 2013 offers a little of everything to not alienate, but to accept. For people of all ages, there is a black and white look. The minidress that may not be suitable for the working woman can become the great sleeveless shift. As long as there is contrast, there is a party going on.
Rememebr the pops of color on the earrings or the necklace, too. These separate the fashionistas from the rest of the population. A look is a head to toe orchestrated show of personality. Colors mean that embracing the wild side doesn’t offend or put fear into a woman. And color has so much fire against the black and white backdrop that any color has a bolder brighter meaning.
There are many affordable options for the high contrast trend of the season. Find some really great Spring pre sales in local stores. The season has to get a jump start and it begins with us.
