How Celebrities Are Wearing Monochrome

by Chloe Wilshere, Content Creator

Black and white is the easiest and most timeless colour pairing in the world of fashion - it’s a colour combination you can’t go wrong with. As Karl Lagerfield once said, ‘Black and white always looks modern, whatever that word means.’ And we simply couldn’t agree more.

Whilst monochrome looks are never out of fashion, this season they’re more in than ever before. Something I’m sure we’re all happy about, as it’s the simplest colour pairing to throw together and looks great on everyone. So, for the winter season ahead we’ve rounded up 21 of our favourite monochrome celebrity looks.
