So yesterday I touched a little bit on the topic of one of the new trends for Spring 2013 which is black and white check prints. But I first noticed it last week online when vlogger/designer Shanda Freeman posted pics from her Gemini Collection featuring a black and white striped dress where she referenced designers such as Marc Jacobs also using that print in his spring collection as well. Well Shanda was right on point because as I’m still glancing through my February magazines, monochrome, geo prints, stripes, checks, polka dots and contrasting black and white prints is all that I see. It kinda reminds you of the 60’s Mod Trend. Actually black and white never goes out of style but now we have even more selections and prints to choose from. So with that said, I’d like to share with you some of my fave curvy black and white items that I have found online for the upcoming Spring 2013 season:
