Black and White and Leopard (Oh My!)

Photos: Katie Derus | Cardigan: J.Crew Crewcuts (similar style here) | Flower Pin: Forever 21 | Skirt: Urban Outfitters | Belt: Vintage | Sunglasses: Chloe | Shoes: Ann Taylor | Bracelets: Express, Nordstrom, F21, Common Era, Boutique | Ring: Nordstrom (similar here)

While I realize that fashion and color go hand-in-hand, I also love the occasional black-and-white fashion editorial. Katie almost always gives me photos in color and black and white (and they're always stunning), so I thought I'd share a couple with you. I especially like the contrast and texture in these photos.

Readers, do you like black-and-white fashion photos, or do you prefer color? Fellow bloggers, do you ever use black-and-white photos on your blogs?
