Some people say that black and white monochrome is boring, but I disagree, I find it elegant and truly chic. Think of a black and white dress paired with a bright colored bag … the result is striking. That´s probably the reason why monochrome is a tried and true trend that keeps on repeating itself. You can either keep it classic and covert chic with head to toe black and white, or you can make it attention-grabbing with the help of bright color accents.
If monochrome is also you style and you´re looking for new ways to wear this trend for fall, here are six outfits from Coast that you should check out.
1. two in one stripe shift dress
Instead of the common black and white, how about we make it beige and white? Look the gorgeous contrast of stripes in this dress, the layered crop top has large stripes, which gives the illusion of bigger bust line.
This style will flatter a pear shape figure the most, the slim stripes on the dress will slim down your wide hips, enhancing the proportion of shape. Avoid this style if you are an inverted triangle.
2. black and white bardot dress outfit
Most of the fit and flare dresses are too sexy with skirts that are too full. This fall, slip into a sophisticated bardot fit and flare with black and white stripe top, three quarter sleeves, and a solid black A-line skirt. To wear it to work, finish the look with wine colored court shoes and satchel bag for some hint of color.

3. monochrome print dress
This contemporary styled dress is your great pick for special events this fall. It also has a cropped top overlay in feminine beige which, also still neutral, suggests color on your monochrome.
Its flared skirt creates a flattering silhouette with exaggerated fullness and dramatic flaring. I suggest opting for a pair of beige high heels to match the top, and a silver or black handbag to match the skirt.
4. monochrome trend stripe maxi dress
If you´re on the tall side, you will surely love this imposing black and white maxi dress. It brings all the drama to the even in the most captivating yet effortless manner. You don´t need colors to impress, you only need its stripe long skirt to swing nicely and sweep the floor as you stand high on your cigarette high heels.
5. black and white spotted dress
When the temperature in the office begins to get chilly and you need to layer, start with a chic but relaxed quarter-sleeved dress featuring black and white spots and tiered layered skirt. You can move all stay at work feeling comfortable, but without sacrificing style even for an inch. Polish up with an all-black accessory.
6. white top + black pants
For a more functional week-to-weekend outfit, you need a classic high neck white top with flared hem and cropped style. Wear it with relaxed yet tailored trousers, and tapered slim legs. Layer it with a cardigan during day at work, or with a sequined blazer for an after-work cocktail event.
Black and white monochrome will never go out of date, you only need to find new ways to update the style.
