Black is back. White is back. Particularly big in the beatnik-era ’60s, this classic combination is a favorite for one obvious major reason: You can’t go wrong with it. As a New Yorker, I must say this is very exciting news. To some people, black-and-white translates to minimalist, simple, even boring. But look again. Today’s designs include bold prints, unique cuts, graphic patterns, and embellishments like beads, lace, and embroidery. The contrast of the colors (or should I say non-colors?) provide a stronger accent for such details as well as a crisp feel. has a great selection in their Black & White boutique. For a beautiful but not stuffy look: pair this Tocca black trimmed satin skirt ($119) with the A.B.S. white beaded tank ($117). It’s hard to resist the ultra-feminine Chanel black satin print logo cap flats. For the truly jet-set, the Vince black belted poplin cropped pants will become your favorite wardrobe piece. Nail the trend with the BCBG Max Azria black floral silk halter dress. ($120) So much to choose from! If you’re anything like me, you’ll want it all. But with a trend so simple, it’s hard to go wrong and if you do, you need help. Find everything you need at
