Top 10 Monochrome

Ever since Audrey Hepburn’s Eliza Doolittle appeared in that Ascot Races scene, the power of monochrome to create an impact has been well acknowledged. This season black and white has been seen throughout the catwalk and ready to wear collections, and from simple separates to elegant evening dresses a touch of monochrome will instantly give you the edge in the style stakes.
