Summer's must-have monochrome staples

Image source: Instagram
Every season there's a new trend and it can be really difficult (and expensive) to keep up.

My suggestion? Buy staples in black and white that will last you for a few seasons, only adding a few statement pieces like jewellery or mixing it with timeless denim pieces where you can.

Here, I have chosen 3 black and 3 white summer staples from some of our most fashionable Instagram friends:

1. Black crop and full skirt in black. You can mix and match this with other items and go from day to night in a few items flat.

2. Get some sliders in white from Mr Price. They look great with any day look - especially on the beach with a jean short and a tank top.
