How to work: monochrome

Monochrome is THE look of the moment and probably the easiest of this season’s looks to pull off.

Black, white and greys are the key colours to this trend and anybody can work this look especially if you are a Melbournite, where most of our wardrobes consist of black!

Just by adding a few white or patterned black and white pieces, you can make a drab black outfit look fab!

The ever stylish Olivia Palermo accenting the monochrome look with tan heels and clutch.
Kate Hudson looks fantastic in a monochromatic patterned top as her statement piece.
Karl Lagerfeld is the epitome of monochrome. Ashen face, white hair and all!

My picks:

Country Road Foil Print Top $69.95
The Country Road Foil Print Top would look amazing with a black jacket, plain black peg leg pants and gorgeous heels.
Dorothy Perkins Luxe colourblock necklace tee £28.00
How gorgeous is this Dorothy Perkins top? I love the necklace detail. 
French Connection mini brushstrokes dress $149.95
This gorgeous dress from French Connection is one essential piece to work the monochrome look. Incredibly flattering (the pattern elongates the body). I say this is a must have.

  1. I’m so happy black and white is back in the shops – HATED all the floral and aztec prints that were big not so long ago. Long live monochrome!
