Trend Watch: Black and White Stripes and Lines

Posted by admin, 20 August 2012

I love Scandinavian¬†style. I’d like to state that right now at the beginning of this post. I love it. I pulled some examples of today’s emerging trend from a Swedish blog because they’re super chic, but this style is not specific to those trying to get the Scandinavian black and white look.

The trend is simple: black and white stripes. I think this must be coming off the back of the huge chevron trend because I’ve noticed it creeping in over the last year mixed in with chevron looks. It’s graphic, it’s simple and it can be incorporated into any colour scheme. How in the world can I use this with art, you ask? Like this:

Choose a very simple geometric print and voila! You have a much more dynamic space. I think it would be nice to mix in one of these with some black and white photography. What do you think?
