We did it better. yup we did! alternative fashion always knew how black & white was the perfect mix of sleek, contrast and insanity. we always played with this monochromatic mix, and no color blocking or black & white stripe trend can take that away from us! but since it is oh so hot right now, here are some awesome little items that will keep your monochromatic style still weird but stylish!
I design alot with black and white in my line Agoraphobix , I love mixing it with a bit of color for the perfect eye catching effect, its so classy and yet playful. you can actually pair a black and white item with your fave color - mixed in as a pair of colored wet look leggings, a belt, or even in a detail in the design. its a fail proof schick styling option!
Check out these awesome examples from Agoraphobix, how they make things pop !

the first is this super cute V stripe slouch top, paired with a candy apple red pair of wet look leggings and a biker jacket - so cute and perfect for spring!
this awesome fleece zebra varsity jacket has a pink zipper incorporated in the design giving it a stand out edge that is classy and sugary sweet.
I paired this amazing zigzag stripe dress with a rainbow colored snakeskin print waist belt for a waist definition with an edge.

A really cool way of incorporating a color splash is through these sexy classy pencil skirts. they both have a changeable corset tie in the back, just pick and choose the color you want to lace through them. both the stripe & rose print are basic and can carry your wardrobe to a whole new monochromatic dimension - a play with black & white and prints.
If you feel like playing it cool all the way, and just sporting the black & white combo, you can try working it with this super sleek V stripe racer back dress, lightweight and fun, its perfect for spring with a long cardigan over it and a little clutch.
