From the ’60 to 2015, black and white is a hot new combo on runways. This style will be chic and stylish the next season as well so make sure you have at least one black and white ensemble.
The history of black and white trend
Black and white was the the epitome of the swinging 60s. Together with geometric prints and dots this trend was some kind of rebellion against the explosion of colours at the time. A white high-waisted pencil skirt combined with a black blouse with a white round neckline and black shoes was the ultimate fashion combo. The trend was repopulafavourite black dressesized in the ‘90s with a classic black and white stripes and made a comeback on runways in 2014. The fashion designers such as Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, Rodarte, Celine and Marc Jacobs played around with texture, different patterns and fabrics to produce a perfect black and white makeover. The Marc Jacobs’ collection featured a black and white jumpsuit with angular lines in the combination with white high tops. Ralph Lauren went one step further pointing up a black and white sleeveless mini dress and a clutch bag in the same pattern paired with black stilettos. The black and white trend is here to stay in 2015 as designers such as Thakoon Panichgul, Diane von Furstenberg and Joseph Altuzarra experiment with this stylish combo.
