Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I assume most of you are aware that Memorial Day weekend brings “the greatest spectacle in racing,” the Indianapolis 500. Since I’m from Indy, let me just inform all you non-Nap Town dwellers that this is one, huge weekend!!! You can’t turn the corner without running into a black and white checkered flag, a stellar pair of cut off jorts (jean shorts), a solid print mank (man tank), a beer can or a backyard BBQ… just doing our part to keep America classy :)
Haha! While “the greatest spectacle in racing” isn’t necessarily where brides-to-be flock for fashion forward advice, I would like to toot the horn of one of it’s most symbolic details… the black and white checkered flag.
Black and white weddings are all the rage these days, and because they create a standout look whether they’re standing alone or paired with another, more vibrant accent color, it’s easy to see why. Of course, black and white themed wedding are popular for a number of reasons but mainly because of their versatility and timelessness.
These two “non-colors” work in any setting, any time of the year, and their contrasting neutrality creates a serious pop of punctuated charm. Check it, chickas… get it? “Check.” Haha, I’m awesome:
