This season on the catwalk it's been all about monochrome but just wearing black and white is dull and when done the wrong way makes you look like a wannabe fash pack member. Here are some of my tips on how to keep it real.
Don't just wear opaque black and white, mix it up with some sheer bits. For example this lovely black shirt.
Adding a little bit of nude isn't cheating and helps to stop it looking like you're wearing all one colour if the other colour is subtle. I like this plain nude bustier.
If you really can't face monochrome (even with a little bit of nude) then add a teensy tiny bit of red. A good idea might be this vivid red scarf.
So long as you aren't being really fussy then just ignore denim. Dark wash jeans like these might work better though.
If you're getting bored with black and white then play around with some shapes and optical illusions. Maybe this black and white optical illusion dress?
There's no need to colour block monochrome so play around with prints. I in particular love this black and white print dress.
