Monochrome is a trend that never goes out of fashion. This style is a chic, classic and evergreen combination in the fashion world and if you make a faux pas in this area then the fashion police won’t forgive you. As stylish it is, it’s also not always an easy task to don on the monochrome trend to the T. Here’s a lowdown on how to nail the black & white combo without ending up looking like a panda!
For the young fashionistas
The monochrome trend can be styled in a zillion ways, but you can easily go OTT or make it look boring if you don’t do it right. Enjoy a day of shopping with the girls in a black and white checked t-shirt dress, worn with a cute black sling and white sneakers and you are all comfy for a fun day ahead! You can also choose a white basic cropped tee with the staple black leather jacket and black skinny jeans for an evening at the next music gig. Go ahead and experiment with this classic pairing, but do remember to balance out the two colors well.
For the dapper dudes
Men can be a pro at rocking the monochrome trend too. They can go out of the box by layering a white and black printed shirt with a black jacket and jeans. Sported with a pair of black canvas shoes, this outfit is perfect for some chill time with the boys. If you want to impress your girl on a casual lunch date, then you can opt for a black or white graphic tee with a white half sleeved shirt on top. Finish the look with a pair of loafers and you are all set to sweep your date off her feet!
For the classy ladies
Want to hit the clubs on a weekend but don’t want to wear the predictable LBD? Well, no worries, as you can rock a monochrome look with total glam and stand out in the party crowd! Go for a ruffled white off shoulder top and pair it up with a black pencil skirt. Wear statement earrings, take a box clutch & slip on a pair of metallic pumps and you are all ready to hit the club scene. Also, if you are one of those girls who are sceptical of wearing black clothes on mornings then monochrome is just the perfect getaway for you. A white flowy maxi with black prints is perfect for a Sunday brunch look, when worn with a statement ring and black sandals and you are sure to grab quite a few eyeballs on the way!
For the suave men
Men are not far behind at sporting the monochrome trend both on and off the runway. Channel a suave style statement in a black suit with a white shirt and black tie – perfect for office meetings as well as college/school reunions. Also when getting ready for a party, you can opt for a basic white v-neck tee and sport it with jeans and a well-cut black sporty blazer. Throw on some athleisure footwear and you are going to rock the monochrome trend in all its glory!
So, as you see, the combinations are endless, opportunities numerous and nothing but the sky is the limit. It’s fun to try out different black and white outfits and turn heads wherever you go! So what are you waiting for? Get, set, go monochrome!
