This season is all about graphic spots. From the runway to the streets, polka dots have been everywhere. Whether you wear your dots on your sleeves with a billowing blouse from Nasty Gal, on a regal headband from New Look or dotted on an Oasis midi dress – this trend will add a touch of youth to just about any black and white ensemble.
Gingham is the perfect print to take you through the day and into the night. The check print looks best in black and white, especially when paired with some monochrome strappy heels and a sweet shoulder bag. Go the gingham with Sleeper’s off-the-shoulder midi dress paired with ASOS DESIGN’s hair scarf tying up your locks, a look perfect for a hot summer’s day.
There’s plenty to love about animal print. From zebra to cheetah, mix up the monochrome style with a range of pieces in striking animal inspired prints. To style up this trend, we suggest pairing a fun midi dress, like Attico’s Zebra-print chiffon wrap dress, with some strappy heels or ASOS DESIGN’s western leather mule in cow print.
Typically associated with jackets and boots, leather offers itself in a range of forms. Using sharp lines and structured silhouettes, leather dresses, skirts and pants bring something new to the table. Play with the monochrome trend with genuine and faux leather pieces. We suggest styling simple pieces together like Nasty Gal’s Leather Been Better Faux Leather Midi Dress with The Row’s suede top handle bag and Office Ashen’s heeled ankle boots.
Be sure to turn heads effortlessly in a monochrome satin and silk textured number. One of the more comfortable, form fitting and flattering fabrics in existence, silky dresses and shirts truly compliment any style. Elevate a monochrome outfit with Orseund Iris’ ruched satin dress, Na-kd’s satin blouse or ASOS DESIGN’s cold shoulder satin midi dress.
