This is my second post incorporating monochrome - I just couldn't help myself! Although at first it may seem to be a pretty simple trend with not much versatility, I am actually finding it to be a trend that is going from strength to strength this season. Instead of a strong bold look like did a couple of months ago ('Monochrome Magic 1.0'), this time I opted for a softer look by choosing this elegant long-sleeve white peplum top from Sheike. I also injected that little bit of edge (which I always try to do with every outfit) by teaming up the top with these awesome leather running shorts from General Pants.
The one thing about monochrome is that it is meant to be simplistic and minimal. But I wanted to show that as long as the colours are subtle, you can dress it up with intricate statement jewellery, and still keep with the trend. This Mimco necklace my gorgeous sister gave me for my birthday last year was perfect. I just adore the layered chains, and clusters of pearls and crystals in black white and silver, adding that extra bit of glam and pizazz!
Also, pointed heels have made a comeback in a HUGE way this season - screaming instant chic! this is a trend that I can see throughout winter and even carrying through to spring and summer.
