While monochrome gets to the fore this season, floral prints, bright colored denim and pastel lace numbers still continue to rule. So keep them on, while you experiment with the Black and white.
How to make the trend work for you:
It’s easy to look formal with black and white. The easiest way to avoid it, is to add a shot of bold colour. Go for a bright red bag/clutch, red lips or shoes in bold colours. Neon accessories are a great way to add hints of colour to your black and white ensemble. While wearing stripes, keep the accessories to a minimal to make the look less ‘noisy,’ or visually distracting. If you choose bold prints in one part of your outfit, keep the rest of the look simple.
I did a quick recce of the Black and white scene in stores this summer and was pleasantly surprised to see that the trend has found its way in jewellery with black and white pieces from VBJ, Popley, Nouvelle Bague and Porrati.
