Trend Report: Black & White for Spring 2013

From 60s mod inspiration to futuristic athletic wear to clean, classic pieces, the black and white trend has emerged on top for Spring 2013.

Precision tailoring, high contrast texture, and layering of different fabrics make these monochrome outfits anything but basic.

If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are some looks from our favorite lines:

3.1 Philip Lim plays up the athletic look and gets us motivated to start keeping up with our crunches!

Carven does the LBD in a BIG way.

This dress from Theysken’s Theory is both romantic and coy. We love the sheer overlay and side slits.

Carven proves that black coats needn’t be plain.

Who said black needs to be boring? This outfit by Helmut Lang uses a luxurious print to play up the basic black suit.
