Ladies and gentleman, let me reintroduce you to an old friend: Monochrome. You might not recognize monochrome from the pictures above because recently, monochrome has undergone a makeover. No longer does the idea of wearing an outfit entirely of one color apply only to black and white. In fact, for summer, the brighter the better. BUT, since wearing orange or yellow head-to-toe may be a bit intimidating for many women, here’s how some brave fashionistas carry off the trend in real life:
The Man Repeller, Leandra Medine, pops in purple, while a Style Pantry owner re-defines blue jeans. Finally, The Sartorialist spotted the third woman on the streets of Milan and couldn’t resist taking her picture. The trend is easier than it looks and I guarantee your overflowing closet could put together more than a few monochrome looks. For more ideas, check out the SHOP section below and boldly go where your closet has never gone before with monochrome!
