A certain dress is having its 15 minutes of fame http://www.nytimes.com/. Black and blue, or gold and white? Even Kanye and Kim can’t agree on the color combo…though I’m absolutely sure they agree on everything else. Apparently, this is a trompe l’oeil that scientists are having their day explaining to us mortals, while the store tries to set the record straight:
This particular “trick of the eye” escapes me–the dress is obviously black and blue. But I also see gold…of the fashion kind.
The real news is that these two colors are virtual dynamite, and this latest viral nonsense can serve to remind us girls that we don’t put it to use often enough. I, for one, have this little McQueen number hanging in my closet, waiting for that special night when I want to talk my guy into letting me drive his Boxster. He’s doomed…
Nobody does blue and black like McQueen, but don’t let panic set in if you can’t put your hands on one at the moment. That’s the great thing about fashion…INVENT THYSELF! Just look to the street for inspiration.
Street style, once again, demonstrates the power of these colors in close proximity. Major points for the polka dot hose, clutch and fuzzy collar…ummmmm:
Black and blue breaks up the monotony of layering in all black, a mistake of it girls everywhere..but not this one:
And in case you need one more…
Let me know how it goes. I’ll be the girl in the Boxster.
