Monochrome is something I used to associate with the word boring. The word monochrome in itself is not boring at all, in fact, I think it sounds super futuristic and cool but just black... and white... together? It totally goes against my need for bold colours or patterns.
Since it arrived for SS13 I've discovered that actually monochrome is a very bold look in itself. I also like how easy it is to do, for example everything I'm wearing here I already owned. There was no need to go out and buy myself some striking monochrome paneled trousers (which I definitely did do) everything was sitting in my wardrobe ready.
I've got a 'how to style monochrome' blog post in mind with things I've learnt not to do and what works but until then I'll leave you with this monochrome outfit, complete with paper white face! I'm off to Barcelona next week and then on to Malaga and Morocco, so will hopefully come back looking less like a porcelain doll.
