Black and White. It’s a Fall Fashion Trend that cannot be ignored. Open the pages of any September Issue and you are bound to find an example of how the designers showcased this classic color combo in their Fall Look Books. Today’s Outfit of the Day (OOTD) takes the Black and White Trend back, way back to the Mod Mini-Dress Days of the 1960’s. Color-blocking was all the rage then, just as it is now.
My photographer was in a particularly artistic mood the day we shot this look. These photos were taken in my apartment and remind me of Marc Jacobs advertisements, don’t you agree? They just may be my favorite photos on the blog to date.
Check out this previous post where I styled the Black and White Trend in Balenciaga Scuba Pants and BCBG Fringed Blazer.
This look starts with this UNBELIEVABLE Vintage Mod Mini-Dress by Karl Lagerfeld. I spotted and coveted it on eBay for months before I finally made the purchase. I am wearing it folded under so it appears to be shorter. While I typically have my mother chop the hem of my dresses, this one I couldn’t bear to alter. Worn with fishnets, and all over Black and White accessories, this look is Black and White retro at it’s finest!
The Black and White Fall Fashion Trend is taken to the MAX in every detail of the accessories. I used both vintage and cheapie costume jewelry from Forever 21. The fishnet stockings take the sex appeal up a notch, while the black headband from Target give it just enough innocence.
The Vintage Hermes Sunglasses were a Flea Market find on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. How incredible are these?
The Christian Dior Shoes MAKE this outfit. In fact, their over-the-top Black and White Giraffe Print make ANY outfit you wear them with.
