Monochrome

Black and white are the two basic shades that build any look. Although spring fashion is often associated with pastel colours and bright hues to stray away from the winter darkness, this year the tables have been turned and spring fashion has been given a strong dose of monochrome. 



 The entire look is effortless, chic and timeless. There is a certain ambience that surrounds a monochrome outfit, and it can be perceived in two different ways: boring and dull, or minimalistic and chic. You can interpret it in whichever way, but there's no denying that the simplicity of black and white is effective.

 Seen all over catwalks as well as the high street, this year has been filled with solid coloured looks and monochrome goes hand in hand to create a perfect balance between light and dark.


 The black and white trend originated in the swinging '60s, when Twiggy was the talk of town, and mods, mini skirts and monochrome were popular amongst the stylish women. A-line minidresses, emblazoned with geometric prints were also everywhere to be seen.


 From Moschino and Marc Jacobs to Louis Vuitton, this trend is still dominating. There is a definite flare to this eye-catching trend and we love the blatant yet stylish boldness to it!
