A little black dress is a wardrobe essential. But what about a black, white, and grey dress? Monochrome dresses in graphic prints are a great way of livening up an outfit. It’s also a smart way of creating a daring outfit, while still sticking to a neutral colour palette. Take a look at a few monochrome dresses below.

Monochrome dresses are even more eye catching when they feature a bold pattern or print. The geometric print on this dress is a statement maker. It has a slash neckline, three quarter sleeves, and full skirt. The print is very retro. Pair with patent black accessories for a streamlined look. For something a bit more quirky, try bright accents in pinks and blues.
