Description: Monochrome


How to put it together…

Ditch severe solo black and go for flattering mono mixes – so much kinder to grown-up skin tones.

Yes, you can mix stripes and checks – it's all about layering.

Ageless, hounds tooth check is as punchy as it gets.

A glossy leather pencil skirt screams style, as long as you have the legs to take it – heels are a must.

Trend trick: to get that coveted Channel look, pick pearls to accessories.

Perfect proportions – a boxy jacket and longer coat balance your body.

Flashy Florals

How to put it together…

Hot new floral prints are dramatic, not for wilting wallflowers.

The general rule is: the bolder the print, the simpler the dress shape.

Smooth shape wear will flatter where it matters most.

Opposite attract: style a floral dress with a quilted leather jacket.

Love a leggy look? Pick pointed heels that are sky high.

Three-quarter-length sleeves will flatter fuller upper arms.
