SOME TRENDS TO di­gest from the spring/sum­mer 2018 cat­walks: ice­cream shades, swishy fringes and feath­ers, se­quin suits, bustiers over dresses and shorts un­der them. Off the cat­walk, how­ever, the FROW were em­brac­ing a look that was a lit­tle qui­eter though equally im­pact­ful. The mes­sage? Wear any colour you want… as long as it’s black and white.

Per­haps the idea of a mono­chrome pal­ette strikes you as a lit­tle bor­ing? Don’t be fooled. In­stead, think of it as palate cleanser to the chaos of all those trends, a sar­to­rial re­set but­ton, and sur­pris­ingly ver­sa­tile. Wear­ing a black and white look is a graphic state­ment that can come in many dif­fer­ent guises – sporty and sweet, mas­cu­line and fem­i­nine, min­i­mal or max­i­mal. An over­sized white shirt and black trousers sig­ni­fies boy­ish cool, a frothy white dress with black straps peep­ing out (à la Lily Collins) ex­udes co­quet­tish ro­mance, bold prints be­come less over­whelm­ing in a strict, two-tone pal­ette. And if you re­ally in­sist on in­tro­duc­ing some colour to your look? Make it a sin­gle red ac­ces­sory. Pop!
