Ten Black-and-White Pieces for a Very Mod Moment

A round of applause is in order for Mr. Marc Jacobs. By showing stripes at his namesake spring 2013 show and checks at Louis Vuitton, Marc delivered us with one of spring's simplest trends: black and white color blocking. With the general sweep of '60s style that's been creeping through fashion the last few years, it's about time for a mod moment.

Expanding from stripes and checks, the offerings this spring include paired-down plaids and print mixes, all in easy black and white. Click through the gallery above for ten options, ranging from a minimalist miniskirt by Tibi to a maximalist print dress from Thakoon Addition.—Nicola Fumo
