Why we Love it: Black and White
March 03, 2014

You’ve heard the rumors—the black and white color combo is as hot as hot can be right now. Seems simple enough, right? Two basic colors we’ve been rocking since we could say “new shoes.” But let’s make one thing clear: when these colors combine, we immediately obsess—and here are three, non-negotiable reasons why:

IT’S GRAPHIC
With two colors as bold and contrasting as black and white, the effect is architectural, angular, and graphic. Translation? Eye-catching.

IT PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
A cutout bootie? A ladylike pump? An ankle strap heel? A two-piece flat? These trends ALL (repeat: ALL) combine perfectly with the black and white trend. The result is a powerhouse look that just screams so-right-now.

IT’S SIMPLY CHIC
There’s a clean, breath-of-fresh-air feel to the black and white combo, and that’s one thing we love about it. Not too over the top, just the right bold vibe, and ready to be rocked with everything.
