Stuck in a style rut? A monochrome look will ensure you look like an A-lister. We love the black and white combination as its neutral enough to achieve a classic look, and the paring of black against white makes it refreshing and modern – a win-win in our books! Our fashion team has put together five dazzling monochrome looks…
Take your work-wear up a notch with a playful polka dot dress. Go all the way and accessorise with shoes and a fun headband in the same print. It’s easy to mix prints when you’re going head-to-toe in monochrome, just make sure you choose different sized prints to pull it off without looking dated.
Stripes on stripes? We vote yes! Pair a fine-striped top with contrasting culottes for a fashion-forward finish. A darker bottom paired with a lighter top is ideal if you want to downplay a pair-shaped figure. Finish off the look with chic loafers.
An easy way to wear monochrome is to get a piece that does the work for you. Black and white tweed is a classic style that will earn you extra points. Pair it with a classic white shirt for a more grown-up take on the pinafore dress.
Opt for a relaxed look with loose printed pants in a fresh tropical print and boxy top. Modern strappy heels will complete the look. Want some colour? Try a pop of bold colour on your lips and you can pull off a simple white top with ease.
There’s nothing like a jumpsuit when you want a wow piece. A cold-shoulder jumpsuit is ideal if you want to show off toned arms. Go for a cropped style and have fun with shoes – a colour block pointy heel will elevate your look.
