Mixing and matching colour palettes will never be boring. As much as I love wearing colours, going Monochrome is undoubtedly a classic fashion statement that will never phase out.
Black and white monochrome style elicits several images to mind – sleek clothing, minimalist fashion, sophistication.
For this look, I experimented with textures and grayscale monochrome.
The Look :
Striped black and white crop top – River Island uk sz 16
Full leather skirt – Forever 21 Plus, sz 1X
Black beaded necklace – Lovisa
Mid-calf boots – H&M
I seem to be drawn to leather this Fall and this is not the last you will see of me clothed in it. I’ve always been a fan of sophistication with a bit of an edge. One of my favourite looks from my early 20s was a black sleeveless turtleneck top with a black leather pencil skirt.
Personally, owning leather outfits in a variety of colours makes me giddy with joy. But I am feeling some strong monochrome love this season. It was good fun experimenting with colours and prints the second half of last year and for most of this year. Deeper, darker hues seem to beckon now. Oh don’t worry, it will not be droll !
This stylish crop top has the privilege of being the first crop top in my wardrobe. I purchased it last year but it got forgotten in my ever increasing pile of clothing. I like the decreasing gradient of thickness in the stripes, it lends a unique touch to the top.
Leather can be difficult to wear in the climate I live in but thankfully the skirt isn’t bulky so that makes a bit of a difference.
Having a layered beaded black necklace is a staple in my jewellery stash. It’s easy to pair with most colours and can make all the difference with jazzing up a look.
Here’s a photo taken at home that I like, pre-blog shoot..
Yes the hair is crazy messy!
But I liked it for this look.
What leather clothing items do you have in your wardrobe? I’m curious!
that’s a wrap for now,
stay tuned for another post later tonight! Time for my Sunday siesta and dreams in technicolour 🙂
all my love,
