Fashion has gone retro this season by showing us black and white.  Don’t get me wrong, colour is still hot for the spring season but the combination of black and white is certainly very clean, classy and modern.  As a frequent traveller, I can attest to how challenging it can be to pack in a way that everything can be easily mixed and matched.  When I worked as an Assistant Buyer my boss would travel often to trade shows and she said that she only packs black and white when she travels.  It makes perfect sense.

You can match it with just about anything.  B&W pairs well together and is easily accented with gold or silver accessories.  It’s even more delightful when a pop of bright colour is added in a belt, handbag or scarf.  Almost every designer featured an array of looks in these two neutrals for spring 2013.  The combination is timeless and can go from season to season.
