Baby Got Black

Conventional wisdom touts that a spring wardrobe = lighter colors.  But not so fast.  Black is making a big appearance in the most unanticipated season.  Don't get me wrong--pastels rock--but that's for another post.  Y'other brothers can't deny that it's in every decade this season:

‘60s Mod:
·      Bold prints on mini’s,  graphic prints on pants and horizontal stripes on dresses are super mod

‘70s Hippie:
·      Floral print or tie dye maxi’s, ruffles, and the skinny harem pant make this very haute

‘80s Colorblock:
·       Loose blouses, ponte knit shifts and the fresh look of the colorblock sandal are all dope

‘90s Grunge:
·      Ripped skinnies, cropped sweatshirts and spring-weight leather t-shirts and swing skirts are very now

‘00s Futurama:
·        Pant suits with updates like sharp lines and stripes down the side of the leg rock

Baby definitely got black…and I cannot lie.  Style on.
