See how celebrities rock this timeless street style trend

Riding solo

There is more to a monochromatic look than a predictable black and white indulgence

One woman, one colourway.

March into summer like our favourite celebrity style champions, but not before considering crimson, experimenting with polarising textures and hailing an avalanche of neutrals. The easiest method of adopting this evergreen trend is to sit back and let the designers do all the heavy lifting. No-brainer matching two-piece sets, such as Gigi Hadid's Sally LaPointe jewel-encrusted sweatsuit and Jennifer Lopez's flaming Balmain separates score high marks.

Aching for for some pattern play? Emma Roberts thought right when she walked out of her hotel in clashing prints. The trick lies in the marrying of contrasts — big prints and small prints make happy couples. Keep eyes peeled for amicable hues too. Her burnt orange, muddy chocolate and creamy ivory add depth without straying too far from the trend.

And if you must go dark, take a page out of Rita Ora's little black book. Nobody will accuse her plastic newsboy cap, satin blazer, and polyethylene pants combination as basic.
