Summer Trend – Monochrome

One of summer’s biggest trend is MONOCHROME. A mix of black and white, worn in a stylish non garish way. Whether it’s black and white stripes, spots of block colour, this trend is one of the easiest to master. The key to getting this trend right is to think ratio. Whether you wear 50% black and 50% white or 40% black and 60% white, whatever you choose will look on trend.

There is one way to fail though, too much of one colour and too little of the other so try to keep it balanced. 90% black and 10% white won’t be as striking and trendy. Go for items that have both colours in for a fool proof approach. I have chosen some items that strike a great balance whether you want to pair it with a black or white solid colour.

These Love Label Chevron Printed Skinny Trousers are perfect, it contains equal amounts of both colours and the pattern screams ‘I know my trends!’. For a more smarter look, this South Peplum Top is great, like the model, team it with a black pencil skirt for an day to night look. Another ‘I know my trends!’ piece is this Love Label Embossed Mini Skirt which also has a matching top so you can wear the head to toe look. Finally, this Lipsy Spotted Peplum Top is more subtle and suits most shapes and sizes. Finish off any monochrome look with feline eyeliner for that sexy 60’s vibe.
