This is a design change that Google have recently implemented that allegedly focus on three design principles:
Focus: With the design changes in the coming weeks and months, we’re bringing forward the stuff that matters to you and getting all the other clutter out of your way.
Elasticity: The new design will soon allow you to seamlessly transition from your desktop computer to your mobile phone to your tablet, while keeping a consistent visual experience. We aim to bring you this flexibility without sacrificing style or usefulness.
Effortlessness: Our design philosophy is to combine power with simplicity. We want to keep our look simple and clean. But behind the seemingly simple design, the changes use new technologies to make sure you have all the power of the web behind you.

At the moment there isn't any option in your Google account to switch back the styles. There is this Userscript that will hide the bar for you completely.
The userscript will more than likely change in the very near future to replace the black styling back to the original white styling:
Hides the annoying Black Bar from Google Search pages. More updates coming soon to replace the current styles with older one

The script has now been updated to remove the black styling and revert back to the old white and blue style.
