As seen on the runways (like Marc Jacobs’ spring 2013 show) and off the runways on celebs like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce, black and white colorblock is the trend of the moment.
Kim Kardashian was recently spotted leaving her home in Los Angeles wearing a black and white Sleeveless Colorblock Dress by Cedric Charlier, accented by a sleek hairdo, a bold red lip, white pumps and a black cuff. Beyonce also wore a black and white colorblock ensemble to this year’s Grammys, where she walked the red carpet in an Osman jumpsuit paired with peep-toe heels, geometric cuffs, an evening bag and a bold red lip as well.
Black and white colorblock fashions are the new black! The graphic look looks best when paired with sleek hair and a pop of color, like Kim and Bey’s red lips or even nail polish or colorful accessories. The resulting look is sophisticated and modern, with just a hint of trendy but really these two colors paired together are incredibly classic.
