If the black is a classic and white is a fresh summer look, then the two combined is a claim to fame — or fashion. Monochromatic prints whether they mix or match were all over the fashion week runways for the spring/summer 2013 shows. But even when his homework was done so wrong, this Fashionisto was spotted looking so right.
Wearing fabulous Zara tribal print linen pants and a simple button-down, this sight for sore eyes took the monochrome trend and made it monobromatic. The trousers speak for themselves and this Fashionisto took the perfect risk with a bold, ethnic print. His shirt is a classic, must-have in both men and women’s wardrobes, but it doesn’t stop there. This Fashionisto took street chic to the next level and the devil is in the details.
To break the look up, he added a simple, brown leather belt. This stylish student topped his look off with navy loafers to neutralize the harsh contrast of a black and white palette. As for the loafers themselves, if my other posts haven’t given it away yet, I truly believe every man needs a good pair in his closet.
Consider the details as a means of adding a personal touch to any spring/summer lookbook outfit. To add a pop of color, this Fashionisto wore some simple arm candy in two shades of sky blue to brighten up this neutral look. A rosary chain and some Windsor sunglasses are simple accessories that make this outfit an all around hit.
So let’s do some simple math: If white is the new black and black is the new white, then what happens if we add the two? The answer is a perfect monochromatic look. Scratch that — let’s make it monobromatic. Much like this Fashionisto modeled, it’s not hard, and the effortless chic look is a summer trend that will never go out of style.
Hint: If printed pants are a bit too much, try neutral trousers with a printed shirt like this River Island one.
