Working with a classic two tone palette, monochrome reigns supreme when it comes to understated new season dressing, lending itself effortlessly to the season’s must have print, checks. Leaving colour by the wayside, the stark simplicity of black and white can strike quite the chord, allowing the pieces to shine. Look to Nicole Warne for inspiration, introducing new depths through layered separates, repeating the print for maximum impact with a trouser and coat combination. For just a taste of the trend, the checked skirt is the way to go. Experiment with both mini and midi lengths, pairing with bold colour block stapes – think a classic black high neck knit or white boyfriend tee – and introducing pops of colour through scarlet accessories, as seen with blogger Meric Kucuk.
