Black and white combinations continue to remain strong into the new season – and it’s easy to see why. Perennially stylish, the monochrome trend captures a sense of simplicity that is truly timeless. Silhouettes are sleek, sharp and classic, yet take on a more contemporary feel with luxe styling details. Clean lines and contrast panels create a striking effect that contours and frames the figure. The epitome of sophistication, monochromatic designs have the ability to make any beachside style look instantly polished.

"Monochrome never fails to make a sleek and sophisticated statement."

Whether it's printed or plain, working the monochrome trend into your holiday wardrobe is pretty straightforward. Halterneck bandeaus offer a modern edge with eyelet accessories and gentle ruching. Vintage-inspired designs are also key with polka dots, picnic checks and Bardot necklines for a 50's retro feel.
