Monochrome Fashion

BLACK AND WHITE FASHION TREND

I’ve always been a huge fan of black and white. It seems to be trending these days more so than usual — which is just fine with me! More to choose from!

Is there anything easier to wear than black and white? It always looks timeless, crisp and translates into everything from ballgowns to shorts.

This super-sexy monochromatic look is easy to achieve with existing pieces in your wardrobe, like a black pencil skirt or a white shirt.  Just invest in one or two items to add some edge to your wardrobe and you’ll be spot on – think a chic hounds tooth jacket, a striped shirt or an elegant evening dress.

Keep your silhouette sharp by choosing pieces with clean, simple lines.

A striped shirt paired with black or white tailored trousers will create an elegant look.

Pair with statement gold or silver jewellery –like chandelier earrings or a cuff – to add some shine to your outfit.

If you go for a black and white pattern (hounds tooth, stripes or paisley) then keep the rest of your outfit simple and one colour. 

Take a fashion risk and throw on a pair of black and white striped pants the next time you go out.   

Black and white style is timeless and transcends all trends.  What’s your take on black and white?

On Trend: The Boy Friend Jean

Boyfriend jeans has been an ongoing trend for about two years now.  They are a throwback to fabulous 50s and they are just as great now as there were then.  The new, skinnier boyfriend jeans are relaxed and comfortable.  Washed out and worn in, slouchy and slashed, boyfriend jeans were definitely made for living and women of all ages can wear them.

The fear of boyfriend jeans looking too much like you literally pulled them out your boyfriend's closet, is a concern for most, but boyfriend jeans can be feminine if dressed up correctly. A pair of heels and a feminine top can make the look go from masculine to sexy street style in a second.

A pair of boyfriend jeans can look either dressy or casual depending on what other pieces it is paired with. A pair of classy heels and a nice silk blouse move the jeans up the formality scale, while a pair of sandals or sneakers plus a casual top move the jeans downwards. Attempting to dress up a ripped up pair of faded boyfriend jeans is more challenging than dressing up a tailored pair in a dark wash.

find jeans that fit you correctly. Boyfriend jeans are meant to be loose and roomy, but they should still fit in the waist. Opt for a straight-leg style.

choose a pair that has a "worn-in" look. After all, the concept of boyfriend jeans is that you have, in theory, stolen your boyfriend's favorite pair of worn jeans. They shouldn't look brand new.

Pair the denim with a feminine shirt. It doesn't have to be tight-fitting, but something that has a girly aspect to it like frills, bright colours or fun patterns. This will help balance out the masculinity of the pants.

Roll them up for a cropped look. They look great rolled and paired with everything from stilettos to flat sandals and ankle boots.
 

Don't go overboard with the "worn-in" look. A few holes and tears in the denim is part of the look, but too many rips makes it look sloppy. Find the happy medium.

Many people think they are hard to pull of because it does nothing to enhance your figure but I think, like all jeans you have to search around and find the right pair for you. 
This look is so fashionable and trendy why not have fun with it.  What is you favorite combination?

Trending: The Statement Tee

It’s all about the statement T-shirt.  Gone are the days when the T-shirt was the most basic thing in your wardrobe, because today it’s clearly one of the most statement making items. Whether you like tees with your favourite artist on or an all over graphic print, a tee can add so much personality to your look.

The basic, form-fitting tee can be dressed up or down, tucked into pencil skirts or worn with a sleek blazer to the office. Go with a neckline that suits your personal taste, whether a v-neck or a high crew.

Shop for washed-out designs, retro slogans, and concert T's replicated from decades past. Mix with distressed denim or a feminine skirt.

The oversized, boyfriend-inspired top is the ideal Saturday tee. Baggier than the standard fit, it avoids being sloppy when paired with tight bottoms.

The loud graphic tee, can carry an entire outfit and looks best paired with solid coloured pants and minimal accessories.

From nautical to multi-coloured, you can't go wrong with stripes.

Whatever you taste, there will be a tee for you!
