Fashion Week Look Of The Day: Derek Lam Proves That Black Works For Spring (PHOTO)

This New York Fashion Week has been full of monochromatic looks at many of the big designer shows, so when we spotted a print on Derek Lam's spring 2014 runway, we were thrilled.

Though the designer delivered a slew of great looks (highlights include a denim jacket, a flirty yellow midi skirt and dresses with fringe detail), the standout pieces were all in a graphic gingham print. Lam used the print in the first few outfits that came down the catwalk and our favorite was a black rendition that featured a gingham turban and dress. Though black isn't a traditional spring color, the pattern screams spring so the pairing works. Forget white, all we want to wear when it heats up is black prints.
