Is it the influence of your blog or my wild imagination .. but I've just bought a garment (sort of short dress to wear on top of cigarette slacks) with a patterned black and white fabric ... I wear it over black slacks and a long sleeves black cotton T shirt underneath (too cold in paris this month).

I have notices that there are a lot of matchy suits coming. Also in plain colors! It is a classic but lately we have seen more people wearing tops and bottoms that didn´t match.
