Anja Rubik's new editorial for Self Service Magazine, ironically titled 'The Now,' displays some striking monochromatic fashion ensembles that offer viewers a trip back to the 1970s.

Each ensemble featured in 'The Now' exists strictly in a black and white color palette. Stripes, checker-prints and other geometric designs are all prevalent throughout the editorial, catching the eye with their stark, contrasting tones. One of the most stunning shots in this editorial is of Rubik wearing a floor-length, black and white-striped dress. She leans back as far as possible, forming a half-moon with her body. Her hands hold a black basket ball above her chest, giving the shot a captivating geometric quality that, when combined with her flexible pose, makes it seem almost otherworldly.

70s-inspired fashion is coming back in a big way, as the world moves on from pin-up girl-inspired outfits in favor of funky, strongly feminine looks. This editorial proves that retro styles can be combined with monochromatic fashion to produce stunning and unforgettable ensembles. Stats for 70s-Inspired Monochromatic Fashion Trending: Older & Warm
