Let’s Put it in Black and White

Black and white print – the most striking of them all.

Let’s forget about the beacons I call ‘shoes’ for a minute (and my oddly shaped leg muscles), and focus on the beautiful, hard contrast of this black and white print. For a very long time, I was opposed to the popular, and incorrectly named, ‘monochromatic’ trend, preferring to drown myself in colour than risk looking like I was heading to a more sombre occasion. My dislike for black even lead me to believe that it really didn’t suit me – and I stand by my belief to this day (just wait until you see me in all black, I look ill). The one exception I make when it comes to dressing in just black and white is a bold, black and white print.

The contrast of a black and white print hits you in the eye like a big pizza pie with a ferocity that most other graphic prints lack. They are clean and they just work. They work on their own, they work in with any wardrobe and they work with almost any other print or colour. For someone who’s wardrobe consists mainly of colour and ridiculous prints, this skirt fits in impeccably well.
