Monochrome: Checks, Stripes And Geometric

This season it’s all about the monochrome look of black and white…


The contrast of black and white together has always been eye catching and makes a statement all on its own. But by adding funky new patterns, this trend seems to be taking off and we’re spotting it on the runway, the red carpet and on our favorite celebs (the moment Beyonce rocks it, you know it’s got to be in our closet). It’s slimming, daring, and screams self confidence!

Like all trends in fashion, there are ways to adjust the look to fit your skin tone and body type and since our favorite go-to color in our closets is black, it’s not an expensive trend to achieve. Just mix and match some of your favorite pieces and see what you can come up with. Think outside the box and pick up some new basics in a fun new pattern to layer over or under your current looks whether it be in stripes or checks. We are excited to see this trend making its way from the runway to our closets this Spring/Summer!
