Get The Look: Modern Monochrome

Monochrome need not be confined to winter. In fact, these style stars prove that a combination of black and white can look ultra cool in the heat of summer. It’s all about balancing proportions. Take your cue from Sarah Harris and pair a low-cut top with tailored trousers or tuck an oversized sleeveless knit into a layered mini skirt. Miroslava Dumo’s midi dress looks smart when worn with open-toe sandals for day, but throw on a pair of tights (and a chunky knit) at night.
