Today’s Fashion post is tagged Monochrome Monday which was inspired by my colleagues who were beautifully dressed in Monochrome.
How much do you know about Monochrome fashion? Though a lot of people rock monochrome, only a few know much about it. Monochrome is a combination of white and black on the same outfit. As weird as it sounds, the combination is a classic colour that has been around for a while. Remember the days of black and white television? Yes they once existed and a lot of things where black and white then including fashion.
The Trend that the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, John Travolta and many others rocked in the 60’s – 80’s never went anywhere. Monochrome fashion is popping out everywhere you look, whether it is a man wearing a black suit with white shirt or a woman in her corporate look with white shirt and black pencil skirt on stunning black heels. These days there’s rarely any red carpet without a popping monochrome outfit to catch your eyes and even runway shows have taken a lot from the classic 60’s fashion trend to re-invent them on their catwalks.
That’s a bit about the retro monochrome. Now take a look at what re-inventing monochrome is like with my colleagues styles. I love how she jazzed up her monochrome look not in the common very corporate style but a bit playful and casual yet you will agree with me that She still looked smart and classic.
