They say everything looks better in black and white.

According to the Spring/Summer 2013 runways, “they” just might be onto something.

This 2013 trend is anything but ordinary and it is everywhere!

Black and white is being seen in abstract patterns,

color-blocking, sheer accents, accessories, detailing and much, much more.

Fortunately for us, this trend is so easy to find and attainable on almost any budget.

Many would be shocked to find that this trend is actually already hanging in your closet.

Use basic staple items such as a white t-shirt or your favorite little black dress as a base to pair with a slim pair of black jeans, white accent jewelry, or your hottest black pumps.
