Black and White

Coco Chanel once said: “Women think of all colours, except the absence of colour. Black has it all. White, too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” This year’s most popular Spring/Summer 14′ trend delves into the once 1960’s trend with stylish and chic Black and White combos. Designers are experimenting with monochrome through pattern play, geometrics, grayscale florals and intelligent design. Not only will the perfect combination of these two colours make your outfit an eye stopper but it ensures simple sophistication and poise. However, be careful not to over do it otherwise you may find yourself looking like a french mime or a sort of zebra. The key is to find the right monochrome thats suits you and your body shape, adding accessories and the right heels to finish your look. For this season, every designer is following this trend through dresses, swimwear, shoes and accessories so be sure to reveal your monochrome style on the streets. Here are some of our favourite black and white combinations:
