How I Style | Monochrome

monochrome fashion bloggers black and white

OUTFIT #1 KEEPING IT CASUAL 

The first monochrome outfit in this post is my most basic and casual one I think. Ummm.. actually, they are all pretty casual, because let's face it, I am not about that life. It consists of a basic black t-shirt and cardigan from Primark paired with this black and white striped tube skirt ( is that what they are called? Don't ask me, I know nothing about fashion!) from Newlook. Now although I love my DSLR very much and the quality of it, is superb! I kinda wish it didn't pick up all the dust on my skirt, in the second photo- kinda ruins it, don't you think? The shoes I wore with this outfit are these basic flat pumps from BHS. You will notice that throughout this post, all the photos of shoes are rubbish! If you are a fashion blogger, please let me know how you take semi-decent pictures of shoes?

OUTFIT #2 WHO LET THE DOGTOOTH OUT?

I love houndstooth/ dogtooth whatever you like to call it! I think this skirt, which was from Newlook is seriously one of my favourite pieces of clothing I own. It's really fitted but still comfortable to wear, you can dress it up or down depending on what look you are going for! Today I paired it with this long white sleeve top, from good old' Primark. Not the most warming outfit around but you know fashion over comfort, right? For my feet, I wore my houndstooth/ dogtooth flats which I got from Matalan last year. I love these because they make me instantly feel more stylish and sophisticated.

OUTFIT #3 PRISON BREAK

This jumper, from H&M, has won the award for the most difficult piece of clothing to wear and take photos of ever! It took me so many attempts to get this to look right. However, despite that it is a super versatile and comfortable sweater to wear, at this time of year. It totally makes me feel like I belong in prison, when I wear it tough! I paired it with some black skinny jeans from Matalan because I am not cool enough to own Joni's from Topshop. I got sick of trying to take pictures of shoes after the last outfit, so I didn't bother #bloggerproblems. If you were at all interested, I wore some black pumps from Primark.

OUTFIT #4 LEATHER AND STRIPES AND ALL THINGS NICE

For the last outfit, I froze to death while I took the pictures. I paired this crop top, with black and white panelling from Missguided with some ' Disco leggings' from Primark, which now have a hole in, but I love them too much to throw them away and can't really justify buying ones from American Apparel. I wasn't wearing anything under my jumper and it was about 9 in the morning, saying I was cold is an understatement. Things I do for the blog, eh?  I then paired this outfit with some trusty  Chelsea boots from Newlook which again you can't see because I was being hunted down by a spider and I ended up having an argument with my tripod...
