Top spring trend: What's black, white and chic all over? Monochromes!

This spring, make way for the ­classic monochrome, as this ­fashion trend trumps again, this time beating the colours. Nothing is as universally loyal as an ensemble that ­flatters every woman. Bollywood or Hollywood, monochrome has ruled the red carpet like none other.

Whether it’s a gala night or a Sunday brunch, don a monochrome maxi-dress and you’ll be good-to-go. Rock your date-night by ­slipping into a simple black ‘n’ white dress, with a dash of colour for your foot.

For a more wearable look, team up that white tee with black ­bottoms, or go with a reverse colour combo. Don’t shy away from experimenting with ­fabrics and bold patterns, jazzing up your ­ensemble with bright ­accessories and some electric pop of makeup.

We tell you how celebs have played around this colour scheme.

*Alia Bhatt
This quirky diva perfectly decked up her monochrome dress with a cool camera clutch, adding just the right amount of bling. One could trade those black heels for some more drama. We love how her fuchia lips offers a splash of colour.

*Vaani Kapoor
The actor turned heads in this ­off-shoulder monochrome dress. She looked stunning with nominal makeup sans jewellery. The tidy ponytail and those slinky pair of heels had onlookers weak in the knees.

*Neha Dhupia
The actor rocked a designer monochrome gown and did justice to the look by sporting chunky ear pieces, keeping the makeup minimal, sporting dark nails and a neat top-knot. Also, don’t miss the perfection that her clutch brings!

*Tisca Chopra
Her look gives a fresh twist to the vintage black ‘n’ white mix. We heart how this differently draped sari has been teamed up with such a gorgeously tailored ­monochrome blouse. Don’t ­overlook her emerald green ­earrings making a bold statement.

*Huma Qureshi
Huma looks nothing short of ­ravishing in this ensemble. The tightly knotted hair and sultry eyes beautifully ­complement the look. The diamond ear-cuffs ­personify femininity. We are ­smitten!
