Perfect Contrast: Black & White for Men

THE PERFECT PAIR IS BACK TOGETHER FOR SPRING 2014

As you may or may not have noticed, black & white combinations are making a comeback this season for a sleek, sharp look. Both men's and women's fashion are catching on to this trend as it's been around for a while, but we are now seeing a resurge. I previously created a women's post about this black and white trend (HERE) and now it's the guys' turn for some advice!

Most men tend to stick to a black and white palette since it's the easiest to work with, but playing it up with some cool prints or patterns can really go a long way. Above you'll find some awesome colorblocking of the black & white contrast in the tops, blazers, sweaters, and accessories for men. My favorite (and recently purchased) is the super trendy white blazer with black lined contrast. The look is really great for someone who wants to keep their style interesting without overdoing it. As a matter of fact, when I was out shopping a few days ago, I saw many men (and women) here in San Francisco sporting the fashion trend of high contrast.

Where I noticed the most black & white was actually in some of the more trendy stores like Zara, American Apparel, and Express. They had everything from the white/black blazers to white/black underwear! It was really nice to see the collections. The polka dotted shirts that I saw were also in a black & white theme; really sharp to keep a suited style up to date and trending. I would suggest stepping out, shopping around, and finding your own black & white pieces!

Remember, always keep things interesting and make a statement with your wardrobe. Consider polka dots, houndstooth, or some simple striping to add a cool aspect to your look!
