Black and white outfits will never go out of style and Zara’s new in page is currently filled with items to make a monochrome lovers dream come true


How does one look fashionable at all times?

Well, the key is to keep it simple.

And a monochrome look is as straightforward as it gets.

Thankfully, Zara’s ‘new in’ page is full of black and white pieces that will create uncomplicated but chic ensembles. Black blazers, coats, and dresses are complemented by crisp white shirts and zebra print dresses.

Our top picks include the limited edition dinner jacket that will last forever and the asymmetric black dress which we hope to wear to every dinner booked between now and Christmas.
