Spring 2013 Trend: Black & White Contrast

Fashion minimalists rejoice! The black and white contrast trend is reported to be huge for spring 2013, which is a good thing for most, seeing as how EVERYONE has at least one go-to black and white printed top, stripped dress or something in their closets, right?

And to add another element to the style, we immediately thought of the soul singing, tuxedo-wearing, Cover Girl modeling star, Janelle Monae, (natch) and her uber-cool use of black and white menswear.

And even if you're not ready to take on head-to-toe black and white menswear, mixing elements like a heeled oxford or a tuxedo pant here and there is a great way to incorporate the look into your spring wardrobe.

As for that polka dot bowtie? Yeah, it's on my list.
