Monochrome is one of those wearable trends that manages to suit every shape, size and personality. Rest assured, it isn’t just about black and white stripes, so you needn’t worry about looking like a mime or Elvis in ‘Jailhouse Rock’. This season, it’s a battle between checks, houndstooth, squares, stripes and panels versus black on black, and white on white.
4 STEPS TO MONO COOL
1. For a definitive monochrome look, as seen at Marni, Prada, Jil Sander and Louis Vuitton, opt for tailoring and daytime wear in a range of bold black and white prints. Don’t be afraid to print clash either, Spring/Summer is the perfect time to have fun with colour.
2. If you’d rather keep things simple yet chic, you can wear all white or all black (as seen at Lanvin, Celine, Alexander Wang). Although black isn’t the first colour that comes to mind when you think of spring, it’s huge this season. Sporty black dresses, flowing shirts and wide leg trousers are the name of the game. Black on black isn’t just for the colder months – all-year round black wearers rejoice!
3. You could also go for the all white look. Crisp, fresh white screams Spring/Summer just as much as florals and pastels. For a girly look, opt for a white dress which will give the illusion of being in all white. For a tailored Milan-worthy feel, opt for a crisp white suit.
4. And what about accessories? Channel the monochrome trend with strappy stilettos, pointed courts, gladiator sandals, sporty wedges and fun block colour handbags.
