Spring 2009 Fashion Week Trend: Black and White Pattern

Black and White Pattern at Carolina Herrera, Preen, and Issac Mizrahi.

Style tip? 
When you limit your color palette to black and white, let loose and go wild with pattern.  No matter how crazy the pattern is, your outfit will still embody a certain elegant graphic sensibility.  Or if you’re not feeling too wild, stick with stripes (a la Carolina Herrera) for a chic, put together look.

What do you think?  Would you wear wild black and white pattern?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    I love B&W prints and patterns. The always look so fresh and modern and can be paired with just about any color. I would have worn hot pink or bright red shoes with the outfits shown here. Yes, the Issac Mizrahi with a pair of hot pink heels in the same style!

    i like the black and white color on the models but i think that the pants are to baggy especially on the model that looks like a stick. i love the gorgous shoes on the model in the middle i think they are so fashani.

    As a jewelry designer i’ve always been fascinated with the palette of black to white (metals) and how they work as adornment on the human body. Living sculpture!
