Trend alert: Monochrome dominates New York Fashion Week! This season, classic black-and-white gets a modern update – and we love it. Always so elegant, always so chic. By Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis.

The reason for monochrome’s staying power? It is an easy look for every woman to pull off – from the business executive to the stay-at-home mum. This stylish trend makes you look instantly polished and put-together. There’s no denying it; it’s pretty simple to achieve, whatever the season.

Create a sleek silhouette, and add interest with bold monochromatic elements. Think graphic lines (diagonal stripes for figure-defining looks, or vertical stripes to elongate legs), polka dots, ethnic prints or florals. Don’t be afraid to combine more than one print, if your personality allows.

Keep the look sophisticated by pairing with neutral accessories like nude, silver or gold. Or mix up plain separates with an interesting printed statement piece – perhaps a polka dot scarf, striped bag, or two-tone / reptile print shoes. Either way, the end result is sleek sophistication.
