Neutral is an easy and fail-safe option. It’s always classic and you can purchase timeless pieces that will weather many seasons – especially in a time of uncertainty. “I always strive to look effortless, which is at the core of neutral dressing.” Too much of black hues may not be ideal when comfort is conserned with this humid weather so bring it down a notch and pair it with whites

While fashion experts expect some of your favorite trends to stick around in 2019, you're going to see them reinvented in interesting ways. Exciting, brand new trends are also making their way into stores over the course of the 2019 year.

Of course, you need not wear a fancy schmancy dress to pull off the ultra-feminine vibe. The style expert said by simply incorporating little details, like the aforementioned florals and ruffles, into your shoes or accessories, you'll be able to "give your outfit a fresh look" for the 2019 year.

If capsule wardrobes are your thing, you're in luck. After attending the spring 2019 fashion shows, San Diego-based personal stylist Vanessa Valiente revealed to The List that "monochromatic looks" are definitely going to be in fashion. Yay for easy-to-coordinate pieces!

As pictures of the Burberry collection show, designer Riccardo Tisci was surely all about monochromatic fashion. He included plenty of muted tones, like taupe and camel, all throughout his designs and even presented subdued versions of what would normally be very bold prints, like leopard. A few pops of solid colors were added, including fiery red, but the Spring 2019 designs remained cohesive and monochromatic — and yet, they were anything but monotonous.

Fall 2019 Ready-to-Wear

As the fashion casualties of red carpet season mount in a multi-coloured heap of tulle, sequin and feathers, you can be sure those like Charlize Theron, who erred on the side of caution by going with black and white, escaped the worst of the online commentary. No wonder this killer combo has become so popular again this year Charlize Theron wearing Dior, Golden Globes 2019. Trends may make fools of us mere mortals but monochrome rarely leads to regrets.

By definition, monochrome may mean varying shades of the one colour, but we’ve come to recognize it as black and white. Navy and white works too if you find black too draining on the complexion, as spotted on an elegant street styler Darja Barannik at Copenhagen Fashion Week.

Karl Lagerfeld held true to his predecessor’s aesthetic with that signature Chanel look providing the foundation of every show and the default choice of his muse Keira Knightley whose understated glamour has won her those big bucks contracts.

The best part about black and white is that it’s just so easy to put together as long as you resist that urge to add colour, then it can head off in a different direction entirely, one we can’t insure against. For those who like pattern, there’s plenty of zebra print, checks and stripes on the high street to play with if you fancy more of a challenge. With fast fashion under ever more scrutiny in these changing times, those black and white buys are sure to last the test of time. Maybe that’s one of the reasons it’s become the non-colour combo of the season.
