On the Trend: Monochrome

Sep 3, 2013

It's all about black and white! These two colors seem to never go out of style..they are always chic and classy. But with the monochrome trend on the rise, it's time to mix the two! And what do you get? An outfit that contrasts and is amazing. Oh, and don't worry! You can wear this look without channeling Beetlejuice!

Jessica Alba loves this trend right now. I find her to be a huge inspiration to how I'd personally wear it. Check out my Pinterest to view some my monochrome inspirations for further help!


How do I wear it?

1) Stick to the Classics- Find classic skirts, blouses and tanks that are entirely black or entirely white. Then mix the two. It makes your outfit look very put together and professional.

2) Make a Statement- Wear a black and white pattern as 1 main garment item. Pants, a blazer, or even a dress! Too shy to try that much? A simple black and white bag or shoe will easily do the same job!

*TIP* A lot of us already have black and white striped shirts since they're a wardrobe staple! Don't have spending money this month? Dig out your striped shirt instead!
