Monochrome has to be the biggest trend that has emerged for SS13. Ever since Louis Vuitton’s iconic show, which featured checks and stripes, monochrome has been the buzz word on fashionista lips.
Luckily for those of us without a the budget of a Russian oligarch’s wife, the High Street is abounding with the trend, from head to toe black and white stripe dresses to cute separates that can be paired with denim, leather and block colours. Look to Zara and Asos for affordable fashion forward staples.
I like this River Island stripe blouse which clashes stripes to add an edge to the trend. At £30, it won’t break the bank and will see through to AW13 nicely. Workable for the office, I would pair it with a black leather mini and a statement red lip to take me to evening cocktails.
Will you be working monochrome?
