Trend of the week: A black and white guide to monochrome

INSPIRATION

Bye bye, cramped sale rails; hello, new season clobber.

Well, maybe not just yet. With two weeks until summer officially takes its leave, there’s still time to flex that fair-weather wardrobe.

Sure, climate control may prove tricky (freak showers, anyone?) but there’s one trick that takes the stress out of trans-seasonal dress – the mastery of monochrome.

The trick? Simple. It’s black and white.

STYLE NOTES

THE LOOK

Think beachy waves, polished skin and ‘no make-up’ make-up.

THE SILHOUETTE

Create the illusion of length with a head-to-toe monochrome look.

THE PRINT

Forgo this season’s sea of gingham for classic graphic prints like solid stripes or micro dots.

THE ACCENTS

Simple is as simple does so keep clear of unnecessary clutter and opt for minimal accessories that complement rather than compete.
