tienlyn 's Thoughts:

While black and white is one of the biggest trends for spring, seen on at least 65% of spring runways in some shape or form (that’s an official number I just made up), it is hard for me to actually announce this as an actual ‘trend’. It’s a combination people have embraced for decades, regardless of cut, material, or pattern. And while cut, material, and pattern may be part of what makes this trend modern again (we’ve thickened stripes, opened our arms even wider for houndstooth, re-introduced checkerboard, and dug up plaid from a shallow grave), the other thing that makes this ‘trend’ so modern, is that is, in fact, trendless.

There has never been a moment where black and white was ‘out,’ which is why I encourage you to embrace this colorless pairing above all other trends. It will make an impact now, in 6 months, and next year. To get the most out of your black and white investments however, I offer two rules. 1) Solids will last longer than patterns, no matter how fun patterns may be 2) If you think a waiter could pass off your black or white item of choice as part of a uniform, don’t buy it.

Other than that, there really isn’t any harm in seeing the world in black and white every once in a while.
