Despite monotone featuring heavily on recent catwalks, many women shy away from the trend for fear of looking like a waitress.
However, according to Harpers Bazaar blogger Geneva Vanderzeil, there is little reason for concern, as outfits in black and white can easily be thrown together by following a few simple tips:
- Wear a luxe fabric such as leather — try a skirt or skinny pants.
- Accessorise with gold or silver jewelry. A fine gold chain necklace can add that extra touch of stylish elegance.
- Top off your look with a sexy red lipstick. Vanderzeil recommended MAC’s ‘Lady Danger’.
Monotone can be extremely flattering when pieced together correctly for a stylish and sophisticated look.
The idea of pairing black and white has been around for a long time and the latest influx of designs show that this trend remains innovative. Monotone should be a staple in anyone’s wardrobe.
