The covertable black and white tuxedo has given a faminine influence over unisex dressing. There has always been a touch of class associated with black and white.
Unisex dressing however, came from Mrs Prada, who delivered a high fashion version of ”his n hers” – fifties denim cuts and workaday sports jackets worn in sequence by first male, then female models.
The feminine influence over menswear has reached new heights with more and more women rocking meanswear on and off the redcarpet.
Monochrome gives black and white a contemporary make over with the use of pattern, prints, intellectual design and minor detailing. Opposites attract when it comes to monochrome, the infamous tuxedo proves this best.
If you are someone who is afraid of bright colours I suggest you try monochrome, neutral colours like – gray, white, black or beige and don’t be shy to put in some pastels to brighten up your look.
Don’t be shy to play around with clothes, colours and accessries, that’s how fashion trends begin.
