How To Rock the Monochrome Fashion?

The moment we think that the monochrome mania is a passé, a new trend sneaks in to rock the fashion world! Are you struggling to get the right look with monochrome? We surely understand that dilemma, since it’s not just about sporting the black and white combo but wearing the right cut with the right accessory and carrying it with the right attitude does the magic. So for all those pretty butterflies we show you how to rock the monochrome fashion..

  1. Suit Up

Want to brighten up that otherwise mundane day at office? Then do it in style with the super chic look by Sophie, follow the dazzling glamorized look by Kim Kardashian with matching accessories or simply play it down like the hot Angelina Jolie.

Suit Up

  1. All Black

Get the all black Michael Kors look by Tanaaz Bhatia, with those leather skinnies and chic sandals in frills. Lili Allen does it equally well exuding that oomph factor looking super elegant in that pencil skirt and plunging neckline with a matching pair of cool printed boots. You can never go wrong with the leather and boots look like Amrita Arora.

All Black11

  1. Prints

When in two minds with prints wear it like Lea Michele in a comfy playsuit (sans the accessories) or take a cue from Kajol who’s flaunting it with minimal accessories, sticking to just a statement belt and a wristlet.

Prints

  1. Shorts

Amrita Arora sports the casual yet natty look with aplomb. Rachael and Shraddha Kapoor does it well too and look cute and super chic at the same time.

Shorts22

  1. Polka Dots

Wearing polka dots can be a bit tricky in monochrome unless you do it like the talented Kangana or the sophisticated look by Amy Adams in a halter gown. When in doubt look cool with hybrid prints like SJP.

Polka Dots 33

  1. Jumpsuits

The jumpsuit trend takes a new twist with wild prints on cotton or the hip combo..

Jumpsuit44

  1. Pencil Skirts

Show your curves with the pencil skirts in the right mash up like Mandira or Kareena, in the perfect contours and fab paneling.

Jumpsuit44

  1. Dress

Dress it up like Sarah Jessica Parker teaming a short dress with a jacket, with the superb bow silk dress like Kirsten or flaunt those silhouettes like Sonam or Aishwarya.

Dress

  1. Pants

Whether in the traditional black and white, solid single colors, in a contrast or with a tuxedo on, the pants are the perennial fashion wear for all.

Pants

  1. Frocks

Whether in horizontal stripes, silk or in checks the frock trend is timeless and just so cute.
