From global cat­walks to In­dian run­ways, mono­chrome has been rid­ing high on the style charts for many sea­sons now. And it’s hot again!

What makes it trend? “It’s the best way to break from the colour­ful pal­ette. A good detox, I’d say. It’s a clas­sic yet very ver­sa­tile,” says de­signer Anav­ila Misra. Agrees de­signer Amit Ag­gar­wal, “Mono­chrome is great as sep­a­rates, too. It can be paired in­ter­est­ingly for a sporty or a chic look.”

This time around, mono­chrome finds power in its pu­rity. At its most ef­fec­tive, the dis­ci­pline of strict black and white is mir­rored in clean lines and sharp sil­hou­ettes. You can take cue from ac­tors Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone or Son­akshi Sinha.

For styling, Ag­gar­wal sug­gests, “Deep coloured lip­stick like marsala or bur­gundy, and chunky new age ac­ces­sories.” Misra sug­gests adding a pop of colour us­ing ac­ces­sories.

While stylist Vikram Seth says to keep it sub­tle, “Go for white and black sep­a­rates and team up with nude footwear and nat­u­ral makeup.”
