While other trends come and go, the effortlessly chic monochrome has stood the tests of time. The lure of black and white has remained a style classic and season after season it’s presence still reigns supreme on a plethora of catwalks. The coming season is certainly no different with designers once again channeling this iconic trend.
As with all style re-births this time around monochrome is of course still in essence monochrome but never before has it had this edge. While we all knew that kids under 16 spend their days glued to the Disney Channel, it seems that some of fashion’s finest have taken followed suit and taken their inspiration from 101 Dalmatians. Yes that’s right, next season your style icon will be Cruella DeVille as Dalmatian print takes over your wardrobe from everything from coats to skirts to even your boots. A highly individual look guaranteed not to be to everyone’s tastes but inspiring and eye-catching nonetheless.
