No two colors have been in such tough competition with each other to become fashion’s leading color as black and white. The little white dress is becoming an even more important staple than its black version, making it hard to choose which to invest in. Thankfully, designers have solved the problem for us- Marc Jacobs, Narciso Rodriguez and Celine, have all decided to use both tones in their Spring 2013 collections, highlighting sharp contrasts in shape and pattern. We agree that this is the best way to settle the argument.
