Black and White 50′s Fashions

Black and white has been a popular combination in fashion lately, with several designers continuing the trend for fall.  That’s because it’s a classic look that never really goes out of style. It’s not surprising,  as it makes any outfit look smart, chic and sophisticated.

Below is a fashion spread  featuring the monochromatic trend in 1957, with the models  wearing black and white dresses created from Vogue Patterns.

On the right beaded black ribbon and a bow accent add some serious panache to a simple white pique bustier type top. From 1957 Vogue Pattern #8931. The black four gored skirt, Vogue Pattern #9216.
