It's a trend but it's not a trend.
Black and white has long been an easy fashion combination that we hooked onto in the 60s and since then, we've never let go. Every Autumn Winter monochrome makes what I want to say is a comeback, but really it never goes out of date.
It works for casual and dressy wear and it works for everyone. But how can we get the look this season? Are there changes? And where do we go to get it? Let me be the fashion oracle that solves all problems!
If you want to invest in a coat, then faux fur is your chic option for winter. Penneys have this awesome short jacket to come in store soon that will look great over skinny jeans and the other high street trend, over the knee boots.
Dresses and skirts can make a great statement for monochrome when teamed with a print. Staying on from the summer are stripes, so check out knitted polo neck and tea dresses for this take on black and white. Just add some opaque tights, and you are right up to date on how to style the look.
Full length winter coats are not devoid of monochrome either, and matching this with the penchant for oversize outerwear (more on that next week), it works really well once you keep the rest of your outfit fitted so the coat doesn't swallow you up.
So is the new update of monochrome something you see as a hot option for the cold, chilly days?
