Black and white are the two basic shades that build any look. Whether its a classic black pump or a crisp white shirt, anyone could wear this trend without even realizing it. Although spring fashion is often associated with pastel colours and bright hues to stray away from the winter darkness. This year the tables have been turned and spring fashion has been given a strong dose of monochrome. A classy look of black and white is barely a trend. The entire look is effortless, chic and timeless. There is a certain ambience that surrounds a monochrome outfit, and it can be perceived in two different ways: boring and dull, or minimalistic and chic. One can interpret it in whichever way, but one cannot change the fact that the simplicity of black and white is everlasting. Whether it be a black and white outfit or an eye catching red suit, monochrome has taken this industry by a storm. Seen all over the runways and streets, this year has been well endowed with solid coloured looks. A beautiful single hued outfit can never go wrong. The colours go hand in hand to create a perfect balance between light and dark.
The black and white monochrome trend originated in the swinging 60s, when twiggy was the talk of town, and mods, mini skirts and monochrome were popular amongst the stylish women. A-line minidresses, emblazoned with geometric prints were also favored. If you walked into any shop now, you would see a rack of edgy monochrome prints.
