No colour? No problem!
Trend Alert! Monochrome Dominates New York Fashion Week
Judging by this weekend's runways, the monochrome trend is here to stay. The black-and-white look has been popping up in several collections during New York Fashion Week, adding sleek sophistication to the catwalk without fail.
Of course, monochrome is nothing new. The neutral colours have inspired designers for the past few seasons - and it made our list of the nine best trends for SS14.
But there's a reason it has such staying power: The monochrome look is easy to pull off for us non-supermodel types. It's universally flattering and pairing pieces is a no-brainer. Plus, it makes you look instantly polished and pulled-together - perfect for those days when you need a quick confidence boost.
Victoria Beckham, Jill Stuart and Public School have all showcased the monochrome trend for AW14.
DKNY, Monique Lhuillier and Diane von Furstenberg utilised the colour scheme, as well.
And it wasn't just the models sporting the black-and-white garb. Celebrities in attendance also followed suit.
