Couture Carrie is not usually a fan of the "black & white" look . . . I find it a tad stark, and I'm certainly not suggesting that you wear the above items together! But, properly channeled, graphic can work. Am loving the simple Abaete shift dresses in the lower left-hand corner of the collage (all items above, btw, are available at!).
Ways to wear the trend? Try the D&G silk frill skirt at upper right [does it remind anyone of the cotton-tail-bottom green satin mini that Carrie wore to dinner with Big on SATC??] with a basic white tank, and maybe a bright accessory or two. To buy this puffy D&G mini, go to

Or jazz up virtually any casual look, no matter the color scheme, with a summer-weight scarf, like this Elizabeth Gillett fringed plaid/houndstooth wrap (above left, on sale for a mere $36 at b*fly).

For fall, remember these wonderfully playful Louis Vuitton lambskin gloves (photo at right via

A complete look in black and white that totally works? Behold, this Emanuel Ungaro backless sweater dress paired with opaque tights. Gorgeous!Runway photo via

Get graphic, darlings!
