Fall Fashion Trend: Black and White on Kate Upton, Prints, and Accessories

Black and White Go Go Boot by Jil Sander

Fall Runways were full of examples of the Black and White Trend last Spring.  Over the past few moths I have collected tears of my favorite examples of this trend and I wanted to share them with you here.  From Prints to Accessories, there are 100 different ways to do this trend.  As shown in the photos below, the Black and White Trend can have both retro and modern perspectives; but, regardless, it is always classic and timeless.

Kate Upton was featured in Vogue earlier this summer wearing the Black and White  Trend several different ways.  

In the first three photos, she is showing how to do Black and White Color Blacking with black on top and white on bottom and vice-versa.

She also showed off her “Bombshell Body” in two Black and White swimsuits.  The first a more sporty take, the later very typical retro Kate.

This Giovanna Battaglia printed Giraffe Cape/Coat is killing me it’s so incredible.  It reminds me of my Giraffe Print Christian Dior Shoes I wore in last Friday’s Black and White Mod OOTD Post.

Of course, Balmain does everything right.  Why would Black and White be any different?
