How to Wear: Monochrome

In contrast to the bright bolds and complicated prints hitting the runways and the red carpet at the moment, a very sophisticated number of celebs (minus Mischa Barton who i'm pretty sure had no idea this was an actual trend) have opted for a classic Black and White look this summer. First the wave of white tuxedos hit the red carpet a la Mila Kunis and then the classic LBD's as seen on Jennifer Aniston and Kourtney Kardashian appeared as they usually do, but eventually some clever stylist in la-la Land realised that the mix of black and white was a chic and clean look for summer and a parade of celebs has been seen in the look ever since.

"But how do i wear the look?" i hear you ask, well, taking my lead from some of my red carpet faves i've decided on three ways to pull of the black and white wonder...

NUMBER 1: The LBD with a white accent

NUMBER 2: The Feminine Tux

Kirsten Dunst manages to pull off the tuxedo perfectly by adding a slick up-so and some killer stilettos

NUMBER 3: The Polka Dot
