That we are fans of monochrome is indeed no secret. Here, at Dashing George HQ, we love the simplicity and functionality of using two colours to create a look. After all, the genius does indeed lie in the detail. There is a reason after all why season after season, the white blouse pops up, the black blazer has another reworking and the classic and unfussy black pair of trousers is modified. Suddenly these basics are no longer mundane. They are the key pieces that will transform a look because they are reliable and like a trusted old friend, they will never let you down.
Take our next model, spotted on her way through busy, busy, busy Milan. We love the black Asos skirt and Givenchy glasses. The fact that she manages to snag two trends in one top is also a coup indeed: see-through and gym-style. What she clearly has nailed down is not only that awesome Italian flair, but a drop dead gorgeous smile…and that, in my book, is timeless.
We turn to our label of choice for effortless monochrome: Acne. Here are our top three: the sleeveless black dress, this Avre mesh shirt and these Saville cropped trousers. These three are available online through the official website, retailing at 140, 320 and 290 euros respectively.
