How To Wear This Timeless Trend.
Black and white and hot all over.
You can’t go wrong with the timeless trend that is monochrome. This infamous black and white duo - whether it’s in block colours, geometric patterns, stripes or gingham - is a style that just works. From chilling in your sweats to a night out dancing, it’s a winner every. Time. Check out some of fave stars in monochrome and see how you can style it yourself.
Potentially the queen of monochrome is Victoria Beckham. She rocked it in her Posh Spice days and she still rocks it now. For a night on the town, try a monochrome pantsuit with geometric stripes to create the illusion of endless legs (great for the petite amongst us!). Pair it with some killer heels and get ready to find your very own David Beckham (yes pls).
One of the best ways to rock monochrome is the corporate chic look a la Bella Hadid. A white blouse with a pinstriped pencil skirt makes for the perfect office-to-night look. Add some hoop earrings for an edgy touch and you’re ready to take on the world.
One of the biggest trends of 2017 has been a throwback to gingham. And while gingham is great in any shade, there’s something classic about the OG black ‘n’ white. For a cute daytime look, channel Sammy Robinson in a pair of gingham pants or shorts with a white cami. Keep it casual with some loafers. Chic and understated.
Another way monochrome looks fab? In activewear. There’s nothing more sleek than the perfect exercise outfit in black and white. And we all know that once you’ve got your activewear sorted, you’re 100 times more motivated to work out… right?!
If you’re feeling a little bit extra, and you’ve got a special event on, you can style this trend by wearing some sheer and black and dripping in white diamonds. Find your inner Kenny for inspo and go for an eye-catching, glittering gown and watch the jaws drop.
Not into all the patterns? Keep your monochrome look simple and block. It. Out. Make like Selena, queen of casual chic, and pair your black jeans with a white tee and on-trend sneakers. Add a black and white necktie for interest.
