Trend Spotlight: Monochrome

Yesterday was our official one-year anniversary! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!!!!!!!!!!! We're back today to celebrate in the only way we know how - to talk about trends! With Fashion Month creeping up, trends are definitely on the mind. Speaking of those wonderful fashion weeks, the latest shows have provided us with one of our favorite Spring / Summer trends... monochrome. Black and white from head to toe is always a good idea and just so happens to translate beautifully on every skin tone and hair color. 

We were thrilled to work with this trend in our styling class here in London to produce two photo shoots displaying the different ways in which monochrome is trending this season. Whether you love the masculine tailoring or you have the funky fun style that mixes prints, we've got you covered for some monochromatic trend-spiration.

Masculine Monochrome

We've seen androgyny in some shape or form down every S/S runway. A really easy way to delve into this trend is to play with tailoring. Whether it's a great pair of wool trousers or a nicely structured jacket, adding just one of these pieces to an otherwise feminine outfit can totally change the game. Intermix some sheer pieces, as Samantha did in her photo shoot, to play with the illusion of heavy and light on the eye.

Monochrome Pattern Play 

When the sun is shining and the air is warm, a girl just wants to have some fun! Well, mixing patterns is such an easy way to incorporate this playful passion into your everyday wardrobe. And since black and white are the trending colors of the season, it makes this look even easier to pull off! When playing with patterns, keeping the color scheme neutral allows you to really go crazy with textures and graphics. So have fun and be inspired by Bri's shoot titled, "Black, White, and Red All Over".


Truly Yours,
