Well, we have finally arrived at Black and White.  As you will see from the copious amounts of pictures in this category – it is one of my favorites.  For those who know me, my closet is filled with Black for the simple reason that you can pair it with almost any other colour…especially white!

BCBG Max Azria – Striped Contrast Dress – I’ve been seeing a lot of this corsetted top over t shirt styling.  I quite like it as you can wear this out on a Friday night or on a Saturday afternoon. 

Dior – Gathered Neck Dress

Emilio Pucci – I love, love, love this dress!  It was a nice surprise too because I often find that Emilio Pucci’s flamboyant patterns and colours put me off.  Not on this one!

Emporio Armani – Damn, does that man know how to tailor.

Free People – Beyond Vintage Dress.  Horizontal stripes = very flattering.

Givenchy

Hermes – I could definitely do ‘prep’ if I owned this amazing Hermes outfit.

Herve Leger – Off White, Black Contrast, Bandage Dress.  I have been eyeing this dress for months now.  Me likey!  Classic Herve Leger style with a great twist on the corset.  I’ve been swooning over this dress so much that I actually had a dream that I helped Max Azria on the street and he offered me free dresses for life and this one was my first request.  Too much?

Jason Wu – Here is a perfect example of how colour can be paired with black and white!

JC Studio

Marchesa – Does it again!  I’ll have to look, but I think every trend/post I’ve done has featured Marchesa.

Moschino Cheap & Chic

Alice + Olivia – Zip Lapel Leather Blazer and Maggie Sequin Dress.  While on the topic of Black & White, this outfit not only offers the colour contrast, but the textural contrast as well.  I love when all of those elements combine to make something as well put together as this.  Leather, flowing fabrics, black, white…what more can a girl ask for?

Thakoon – Luiza Jumper

Alexander McQueen – Eagle Silk Shift Dress.  Like the Christopher Kane Tee above, this piece uses a graphic print that is lightly displayed on the garment.  It makes it look almost whispy, fantastical and visually transparent.

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti – Silk-Chiffon Empire Line Dress – I remember one of my first moments in fashion being an Alberta Ferreti advertisement where the models were wearing dresses similar to this one.  Not only did it fit the theme, but it tugged on my heart strings.

Aldo – Turnbough Necklace.

Jessica Kagan Cushman – Aries Zodiac Cuff.  Wearing your initials is ‘so last season’.  Wear your zodiac constellation instead!

Kara Ross – Jet Asian Cuff

KG by Kurt Geiger – Hercules Shoe.  Is that navy or black?  Either way it’s going in!

Was that enough for you?  I could just go on and on!  Remember,  for this trend, it’s all about contrast.

Madonna will be introducing her own Fashion Line called MG Icon, but get this, it’s targeted at…kids!  What is wrong with this picture?  Although Madonna is no stranger to the fashion world (cue pointy bra) as she introduced a line to H&M in 2007, this will be her first endeavour into kids clothes and has struck an exclusive deal with Macy’s.  For the full story, go to http://online.wsj.com/article/SB20001424052748703791704575114072258576824.html#mod=todays_us_personal_journal

In other celebrity fashion news, Lady GaGa was recently asked to remove her black and yellow tape outfit and Alexander McQueen shoes on a flight after her legs started to swell and the flight crew was concerned with her overall health.  For the full story, go to http://celebedge.ca/Bang/ContentPostingSplash3column?newsitemid=SPLTXT21446&feedname=SPLASH_NEWS&show=False&number=0&showbyline=True&subtitle=&detect=&abc=abc&date=False

 ADAM – simple, yet sublime.

Alexander McQueen – This collection showed me exactly what we will miss in his work.

Andrew gn – bow were everywhere!  Plus I love monochramatic looks.  As you can see from…

Bibhu Mohapatra  – I love the quirkiness of this dress.  It almost look like paint swatches or PMS colour chips falling down her dress.

Boy by Band of Outsiders – Although the skirt screams Herve Leger I can’t help but want this outfit as my own.  It would be perfect for a casual Friday!

Ahhh, Burberry Prorsum.  I never knew how much I loved Burberry until I really started seeing their full runway collections.  When I thought of them, I immediately thought of plaids and trenches.  Although, there is nothing wrong with either of those things I am grateful that Burberry has opened my eyes to their many other talents.

Georgio Armani – the pleating and pattern in this dress makes me think of cool waters.  I can’t wait for summer!

These two styles from Marchesa make me swoon.  How much more glamour does a girl need?  The first reminds me of a mermaid, while the second feels like a waterfall.  Gorgeous!

Vivienne Tam paired her blues with black which is one of my favorite combinations of colour.  I know – black and blue, ready to fight?

Those are my favorites from the runway collections.  All of the photos were courtest of Style.com

There are lot’s of ways to bring into your colour pallete for spring.  Mix them with nudes (which I will showcase in one of my upcoming trend features), pair blue with black, where it monochromatically from pales to navys.  Have fun and sing the blues!

10. Marchesa – Resort

Lace is often perceived as being appropriate for evening wear only.  This spring, it has been re-introduced as an element that adds sophistication to even the most casual of outfits.  By day, lace can provide softness to a look when worn as a light layer.  It even provides structure to a design when added to a garment as an applique.  Both 3.1 Phillip Lim and Marchesa have mastered this visual technique.  Alexander McQueen’s full spring ready to wear line was laced (mind the pun) with a graphic print that mimics the classic mesh throughout as you can see on his leggings.

I have often shied away from lace as I find it can look cheap or remind me of bad lingerie but these styles have shown me how it can be done right.  I’m looking forward to infusing it into my spring wardrobe and using it to accent some casual pieces that simply need a touch of elegance.
