(AP Photo/Netflix, Paul Schiraldi, File)By Brendan O'Brien (Reuters) - Black and white are the new orange in a Michigan county where the sheriff has made a wardrobe change for jail inmates after a TV series brought new popularity to the vibrant color associated with prisoners. The Saginaw County Jail is replacing its orange prisoner jumpsuits with horizontal black and white striped jumpsuits because the popular prison life series "Orange Is the New Black" has led locals to make fashion choices inspired by the behind-bars set, a sheriff said. It's not cool to be an inmate of the Saginaw County Jail," Sheriff William Federspiel told Reuters. Some of the 500 jail inmates in the central Michigan county have complained about the new jumpsuits, Federspiel said.

"He looked at it not from the point of view of today, not one of a museum." Other striking dresses included 1920s-inspired embroidered or printed cocktail dresses and long woollen coats with slightly bouffant wrists.

Italian court gives Dolce and Gabbana suspended 18-month jail term in tax case

Italian designers Stefano Gabbana stands next to Domenico Dolce as they talk to the media during a party in ShanghaiFashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were each given a reduced, suspended sentence of 18 months in jail on Wednesday for a conviction on charges of hiding hundreds of millions of euros from Italian tax authorities. Italy's appeals court upheld a verdict issued last June against the pair, who are as famous as the stars they dress, on charges of using Luxembourg holding company Gado to avoid paying taxes on royalties of about 1 billion euros ($1.38 billion). A lawyer for Dolce and Gabbana, who have always denied any wrongdoing, said they would appeal the decision. The previous decision, by a lower court, handed the duo suspended jail sentences of 20 months each and imposed a fine of up to 10 million euros over avoidance of the payments in Italy, where corporate taxes are among the highest in Europe.
