Monochrome, monochrome, monochrome...It's been everywhere this season and is beginning to sound monotone, monotone, monotone, right? Black and white is the undisputedly the most classic colour combination. I don't think I could ever get bored of it, but I'm glad the trend dying down a little, because it was getting a little monotonous, and I personally don't like to look like a clone.
However, there are so many different ways to rock this trend; a vast array of different monochromatic patterns and shapes: thick stripes, thin stripes, dots, swirls, blocks...The list is endless. You can clash the patterns or go simple.
SHIRT: ASOS | BAG: New Look | SHOES: Colin Stuart | HAT: eBay | EARRINGS: New Look | TROUSERS: New Look
What I love about this shirt is that it's not the typical black and 'brilliant white' monochrome, but a black and slightly off-white mix.
Wearing monochrome accesories such as a bag, shoes and/or earrings are a good way of incorporating the look into an outfit, especially if you want to keep the clothes simple or plain.
I added this quinessentially British bowler hat because, well, why not?
These shoes were given to me from Edee of Edee Beau Studios (you may remember, I did a post on her a while back >> here << ) on behalf of her sister (Betse) while she was clearing out her (amazing) wardrobe before moving home. How glad was I when I discovered they were a great fit?! Anyway I friggin' love these wedges! The gold maze pattern is such a lovely detail.
How do you wear monochrome?
