Monochrome combo continues to be the go-to style to many women because of its classic and elegant appeal. You will never go wrong in a monochrome even if you brave the print on print styling. Not only that, if you invest on monochrome separates, you can easily mix and match these pieces with other colors and prints.
That said, Banana Republic is filling their new arrival shelves with many beautiful monochrome pieces. Below are some style ideas you can steal for new ways to revamp your monochrome style.
1. Halter Ruffle Dress
A bigger part of my closet is comprised with monochrome pieces and I do have a thing for black print dresses. When I choose a mono dress to invest on, I make sure it has something unique to offer so that I don´t look like wearing the same dresses all the time. This halter neck, ruffle style black print dress fits the bill. It´s fabulous for a wedding and romantic for a dinner date.
2. Sketched Floral Maxi Skirt
I would love to wear this mono floral maxi skirt casually with a simple dirty white tee and some black strappy flats this summer. But it can also be easily dressed up with a crop top and some metallic ankle strap high heels for formal events. Better yet, I will layer it with off-white sweater, black leather jacket, black tights and black ankle boots for cold seasons.
3. Short-Sleeve Pleated Top for Desk-to-Date
I always recommend investing on desk-to-date pieces – items that can be worn to work during the day and to date after five – and this black print pleated top is a great example. Worn with white pencil or A-line skirt, or white trousers and black pumps, you look elegant for work. Swapping the pumps with sexier high heels quickly transforms your look for an after-five date.
4. Sheer Mini-Pleat Top with patterned pants
A black top is one of the most versatile essentials in my closet. You can wear it with anything, literally, but I´m also loving it with black printed trousers for a truly posh monochrome look.
5. Sleeveless Vee Top with Paper Bag-Waist Crop
Click the link to the pants so can get a good look of how gorgeous the Paper Bag-Waist Crop Pants look with a simple black sleeveless top. This combo is very chic and stylish, but if you´re on the petite side, make sure to wear high heels.
6. Black Print on Black Print
Print on print pairing can be tricky, but if you´re working with black prints, the challenge is eliminated. Create a playful combination this season by pairing a black floral print tiered top with black plaid crop pants. Whether it´s polished with smoking slippers or high heels, the result will always deliver.
7. Open-Knit Crew Sweater with Embroidered Silk Shorts
This effortless look featuring a black sweater and black print silk shorts is perfect for transitional weather. Add a leather jacket and flat tall boots for cooler afternoons, or go laidback with white sneakers for a comfy stroll in the city.
8. Monochrome Accesories
And of course, no monochrome combo is entirely monochrome without the right accessory. Add more interest to your creations with fun black and white accessories – hats, scarves, heels, sunglasses, clutches and bags.
