Forget spring’s usual pastels — this season, black and white looks are making their way off the runways and into closets just in time for the warmer seasons. With a mix of bold graphic shapes, subtle patterns, and a hint of color, this pared-down style can be as fresh and versatile as the most prismatic palette.
A bold, structured look shows the world you mean business.

Play with patterns to add some dimension to a monochromatic look. Black doesn’t need to be boring.
Monochrome can be as exotic any palette, especially if you accessorize in blanched animal prints.
