"How I Style"- Monochrome

Hi Guys!

Today's post is something a bit different, this is my first "how I style" post and I am showing 4 different ways I have been loving wearing the monochrome trend this season. 

Black and white is everywhere at the moment , so I wanted to share with you how I have been styling the colours for everyday and a glam night out! 

Outfit One
Jumper- Topshop, Wetlook Leggings- Missguided, Bag- Primark
Hat- Primark, Shoes- Primark, Beanie- H&M

This look is very casual, and perfect for everyday, shopping, hitting town. I love this Topshop top, it is so comfy and such a great wardrobe staple. It sits really well on the wet look leggings. 

Outfit Two
Jacket- Miss Rebel, Dress -Newlook, Boots- Newlook
Clutch- Miss Selfridge, Earrings- Newlook 

This look is still casual, but a little bit dressier. So you could wear it going out for drinks or meeting friends. My black leather jacket has been a staple of the monochrome style, as it gives even the simplest outfit like this white dress a bit of an edge. I must mention the earrings (which I know you can not see that well in this pic) as they are amazing. Big, black and white - beautiful!

Outfit 3
Trousers- Primark, Crop Top- Topshop, Jacket- Sample Sale
Heels- Newlook, Clutch Primark, Hat- H&M

Going for something a bit different here, with my new Topshop crop top. This is the first time I am venturing into the crop top territory, and I am probs still undecided, but with a jacket over it it feels ok. I just love the black and white lace pattern, it really reminds me of Erdem's SS13 collection. What do you think of crop tops?

Outfit Four
Dress- Motel Rocks, Jacket- Sample Sale, Bag- Miss Selfridge
Heels- Newlook, Necklace- Topshop

Firstly apologies for the fact there is a lot of leg on show here, it did not seem that bad when I took the photo's! This black dress is one of those perfect will be in the wardrobe forever dresses. I love it and it looks great against the white jacket. This is how I have been dressing up the monochrome style for nights out and I actually wore this dress for my Birthday Party night. 

Well, I hope you like my picks and I would love to have your feedback on these types of  "how I style post" as if you like it I would love to do more. I did have a video to go with this post, but the lighting was all wrong with it and I could not edit it right and to be honest had some sort of breakdown with it so just left it in the end. :-( But will re film asap. 

Hope you are having a good week and are not as cold as we have been up here in Manchester, it has gone Baltic again! 

Happy Thursday!
