Black and white monochrome

By | January 12th 2011

Black and white monochrome is one of the few real trends in women’s fashion. It is simple and most chic looks, perfect for whatever time of the year, and it never fails to attract attention when done well.

Monochrome is easy for creating a fairly effortless wardrobe and it can be given the lift of the moment with a bright accessory taken straight from the latest colour trend chart.

Monochrome fashion is smart, crisp and fun as designers come up with new ways of reworking the yin and yang of black and white. If colour blocking with paint box colours is not for you, then go monochrome.

Monochrome is capsule dressing and will stretch that tight budget. Long after coloured garments have faded into last season’s oblivion, you will still be fashionable in monochrome classics that stand the test of time.


1. Accessorise with earrings, bangles and necklaces in contrasting colours.

2. Add a scarf or flower brooch for an office look.

3. Handbags are also the perfect addition to complete the timeless monochrome look.
