This season, classic is cool, as the monochrome trend goes global. Head to toe black and white was big news on the catwalks for A/W ’12 and S/S ‘13 with Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton, amongst others, showcasing monochrome looks. The fashionistas have also adopted the trend with stylish front rowers and street style stars looking gorgeous in black and white.


If you want to work the trend in a more accessible way then try black and white accessories as seen at Alexander McQueen, Nicolas Kirkwood and Sophie Hulme. A pair of monochrome shoes is the perfect place to start…


Not only is the schuh Date Night black and white, it also has an ombred Perspex heel giving it serious fashion credentials. Team yours with a little black dress and some neon accessories for a great party look.


Slimmer heels are making a comeback and we love the white contrasting heel on the black Dance Off peep toe. We’re wearing these with tuxedo trousers and blazers for a stylish, androgynous take on monochrome.


Totally fresh for summer, this broderie anglaise flatform is causing quite a Hullabaloo around the office. We can’t wait for the warmer weather to try out these babies.


Slipper silhouettes still dominate the flat scene and this diamante adorned number makes a subtle statement. Wear them with black jeans, a crisp white shirt, and a slick of red lipstick for on-trend office style.


We love this chunky white tasseled loafer: a great everyday shoe with a bit of attitude. Wear yours with thick black tights and a micro mini for a look that’s been cool since the swinging 60s.
