Monochrome On The Shore

Wearing bright, vivid colors during the summer months can be a fun take on how to make a daring style statement. However, neutrals—like black and white paired together–can create the same, if not a bigger, effect.

Summer is all about bold, high contrast monochromatic looks, which was evidenced on many red carpets, street style shots and on the summer 2014 runways of designers such Victoria Beckham, Erdem and Helmut Lang.

Models marched the runways wearing extra crisp whites paired with charcoal and deep blacks, creating the perfect balance of light and dark.

Want to work the monochromatic look into your everyday look?

It’s easy  and you can extend this trend beyond the catwalk  and sidewalk. Try wearing  black and white poolside or even on your next beach detour.  You’ll look super-chic and cool.

For those that want to go for more daring high-graphic looks, try playing with black and white patterns and textures.
