It's Black and White
No matter what the season – whether it is spring, summer, autumn or winter, the timeless quality of black and white never recedes. Pastels may come and go. Brights may create a sensation in summer and then fade away. The muted hues will stay within the colder climes but black and white, the very safe and constant duo is what designers always return to season after season.
So what is the plus point of this combo? Firstly, it looks great together or by itself. Black, the eternal favourite of every woman is opted for day or evening wear and it is one colour that women adore because it cuts off that extra pound without exactly starving.
White of course, is the fresh cool option for summers as well as glamorous nights down the Red Carpet. From morning to night and for festive occasion like weddings and parties it is pristine white that makes a fashion statement.
For summer 2012, black and white are favoured by most designers. From Krishna Mehta with her angelic whites and blacks with gorgeous cutwork embroidery; to James Ferreira who brings resort touches with white, or Anita Dongre who adds the black and white print for the 1950s look - they are all loyal to this popular duet of colours.
Rohit Bal’s gorgeous crafts come alive in white, while Swapnil Shinde’s futuristic robotic creations stun in black. Soumitra Mondal’s khadi innovations appear ethereal in white, but Jatin Varma’s premier creations dazzle in both colours at any opening night. Nupur Kanoi prefers to go for a more geometric effect in black and white to make a striking impact.
When in doubt and want to make safe fashion statements women can’t go wrong if they choose either black, white or both together because the effect is always very dramatic for any occasion.
Black and white is a duo that works very well for men’s wear too. The all black tuxedo is a vision of sophistication but the all-white suit or sherwani is very dignified. To present an image of corporate style nothing beats a black suit and for those very relaxed summer days or casual evenings white works well for shirts, trousers and maybe a stylish waistcoat. So add black and white to your wardrobe and you can never go wrong.
