Trends come and go, but some fashion styles are timeless.
Monochrome is a trend that we’ve seen make a return time and time again, with Kate Middleton, Cara Delevigne and Margot Robbie amongst the celebrities who are a fan of this classic look. With the right pieces within your wardrobe, monochrome is a style that you can take from season-to-season and from day-to-night with no shortage of sophistication and glamour.
Here are just a few of our favourite monochrome pieces!
Vivienne Westwood, £460
One of the best things about the monochrome look is its versatility – and it doesn’t get anymore versatile than this piece from Vivienne Westwood. An elegant addition to any business brunch look during the day and perfectly-paired with heels and a chic jacket for an evening of socialising – we think we’ve found your new favourite skirt.
GiGi New York, £285
Everyone needs that one handbag that just goes with everything, with bags in black or white always fitting that bill perfectly. This incredible handcrafted crossbody bag by GiGi New York – beautifully made with embossed python leather – is available in both black and white, too, so you can head to your wardrobe for whichever one works that day!
Alexander McQueen, £3,490
Layers of tulle add a dreamy touch to any outfit, whether dressed up for a special occasion or dressed down for the day with sneakers and a tee – there are no rules when it comes to styling a beautiful tulle skirt, adaptable to every look. Explore all the possibilities with this stunning piece from Alexander McQueen, with its graceful silhouette and stylish smoke-effect print.
Dear Frances, £420
The perfect summer sandals, these two-tone mini-heels by Dear Frances are a real compliment to any outfit. With an upper of 100% Italian suede, organic linen straps and beautiful tortoise-shell heel, these are a particularly classic piece – we can almost see them being a favourite of the ultimate queen of monochrome, Audrey Hepburn.
Philip Lim, £710
At its heart, fashion is all about fun – and there’s no reason why monochrome can’t be just as fun as the brightest, boldest prints. This belted polka-dot midi dress is a particularly quirky piece, somehow still vibrant despite its lack of colour! Plenty of opportunities to dress it up, dress it down or keep it as simple as possible, we love how versatile this Philip Lim dress is.
Ralph Lauren, £219
Everyone knows by now that no wardrobe is complete without a classic Little Black Dress, but we think that the exact same can be said for a crisp white shirtdress – and we love this particular piece by Ralph Lauren. It’s a look that can be carried off beautifully by everyone and is fit for a whole world of different occasions.
