How To Style Monochrome

Monochrome is a trend that has really taken me by surprise.
I never choose such plain colours, it goes against my colourful nature. Heh.
But really, I find it a bit of a challenge, so I set myself a bit of a task 'How to style monochrome' and based all the looks around my new statement trousers from H&M.

Black and White

Keeping to just black and white was definitely the easiest way to style a monochrome look and I think one of the most striking. I did discoverer that matching whites is harder than you might think and it looks really wrong if it's an off white against the pure white of my trousers.

Monochrome and Neon

I've found neon quite difficult to style and then monochrome came along, like a knight in shining black and white armour.

Block Colour and Sports Luxe

Block colour works well with monochrome, particularly a bold, primary colour. These trousers are pretty smart usually, so to mix it up a bit I wore Converse for a take on 'sports luxe'. Yah.

Keeping it classic with polished heels, a white shirt and red lips works like a monochrome dream. While this is hardly an everyday look for me, it's nice to whack out the killer heels once in a while.
