And as popular and dramatic as black and white clothing combinations are this season, some women choose to finish the look with colorful accessories just because it's fun and maybe a little unexpected.
“Look around and you can tell it's a black and white season; however, there's still the continuation of neons along with the new faded brights in shades of coral and green,” said Jane Webb, owner of CK & Co. in Nichols Hills Plaza.
Walking into her store is like opening a big box of Crayons with color spilling out everywhere.
A new take on pastels is to wear two different hues together, such as mint jeans with a soft peach top.
And don't think colorful clothes must be paired with subtle makeup. The trend is either very nude or very extreme in makeup, said Alex Mendez-Kelley, owner of The MakeUp Bar. “I personally think you can mix both.”
Even with bright clothing, Mendez-Kelley said, she's a big fan of a pop of color on the face. “I like bright cream blush in hot pink.”
