Monochrome

There's no denying you can't go wrong with monochrome, I for one need both black and white in my wardrobe, they're essential. The word monochrome in fashion usually means a combination of these two colours but can also mean all grey too.

Monochrome is timeless and will forever be on trend. If you're stuck on what to wear for an occasion whether it be an interview, date night or brunch with the girls, the easiest combo would be black bottoms and a white T-shirt/shirt option, simple and classic. The best thing about this look is that it will work on any budget, monochrome is the easiest look to create.

Some inspiration below on black and white looks, all images taken from Pinterest.

Evening look:


Smart look:


Adding colour to a monochrome outfit is easy, just add colourful accessories. Monochrome doesn't have to be lifeless and lacking excitement, it can be stylish and eye-catching too, like the above outfits.

What's on the high street?:

I love the ASOS White collection, a lot of nice things with many monochrome pieces including the below dresses. (Left: Stripe knitted midi dress £75 Right: Stripe organza trapeze dress £75)


If you want something simple this shirt is perfect for work or casual wear, this clean line shirt with frills on the sleeves make it stand out from the rest.

French Connection £37

How about monochrome accessories, I have the below shoes from Wallis, wear with an all black outfit or jeans. Or try a bag, Mango makes lovely bags like this tassel clutch, wear with any outfit.


Re-created my favourite monochrome look below, add an oversize jumper instead of a blazer for a more casual look. You can re-create the same look with a long sleeve lace top too.
