Black and white is a classic color combo in style and fashion – as in, it’s always trending. But as of late, there have been a number of really fabulously high contrast bold accessories in black and white combos with a nod to mod. Sure you can pair separates in black and white, wear a black and white print, or even wear one color while accessorizing with the other to get a similar effect. However, you can add a really fun high contrast POP! with accessories that mix the two. And although in art white and black aren’t considered “colors,” since white is the absence of all color and black is the presence of all color, in the light, we know the opposite holds true.
