Trend Post: everything IS black and white!

Hello Lovelies

‘Tis the season to be bold and floral, but guess what made the cut for Spring/Summer? Monochrome and all black/all white errthing is really trendy this season. This is minimalists dream hey, myself included. If you have a classic wardrobe there will be no problem transitioning your pieces into this season.

Trend Essentials
– Shirts and tunics in light weight fabrics.
– Plain tank tops and t-shirts.
– Wide leg pants.
– Breton Stripes.
– Sheer items or clothing with sheer panels.

I am sold on the all black and monochrome but wide leg pants and all white isn’t for me. I find wide leg pants very unflattering for my shape (wide hips and short legs). Also you will never ever find me wearing white pants; I feel it accentuates my beeeehind.

My ideal monochrome look would be a relaxed t-shirt (slogan/plain/striped) paired with denims.

Street Style Inspo

You don’t have to look far for street style inspo though check out my friend Zaakiras latest monochrome look post (here) for her take on the trend. She shows how you can be just as creative with a monochrome ensemble.

Some might feel this trend is too dreary especially all black but I’m a fan!

    Quite a surprise that monochrome is here to stay for spring and my classic closet consists of most of these pieces from the last spring/summer collections. Lightweight shirt, sheer and sheer panelled tops, black and white stripes, tank tops in black and white and even a flowy white mango tshirt. Having said that and having lived in black this winter I’m quite looking forward to wearing my pieces of colour and buying some soft pastels. But when all else fails monochrome is waiting in my trusty wardrobe.
