Having a Monochrome Moment - EBONI + IVORY

Having a Monochrome Moment



Hey Guys, 



Monochrome- the timeless trend on which we can depend!


This month, i was inspired by the Marques ‘Almeida Autumn/Winter 2017 show.

Monochromatic tones and bold patterns feature heavily in this upcoming collection (which you can view full-size in this Vogue Gallery)

Here are my favourite, affordable monochrome outfits from my wardrobe!

I find myself constantly pairing together black and white to create simple, classic outfits that are easy to wear. Black and white also mix and match well as they can be paired with every colour in your wardrobe!

This black Primark jumpsuit was an absolute bargain as I got it on sale this year for £3.00. I love the tie detail on the shoulder and the cropped leg. I paired it with a £4.00 H&M sale white top with ruffle detail.


The black satchel bag with gold clasp is from Primark. It is versatile and perfect for a day in the city. The ankle boots are also from Primark and only cost £10.00 in the sale!



This whimsical outfit was a staple of my Italy wardrobe! This pleated circle skirt was just £7.00 from a vintage shop in Edinburgh. I paired with some patent brogues and a simple long sleeve bardot top.




In keeping with the vintage theme, I finished the outfit with a pair of black cat-eye sunglasses from Primark.


This was my perfect site seeing outfit for a hot day in Florence.



These were my first ever statement trousers, and now I’m hooked!



I styled these wide-legged Primark trousers with another black bardot top- this time short sleeved. Even my handbag is in keeping with the theme and only cost £5.00 in another fab Primark sale.



I love the striped monochrome pattern. I think its flattering, eye-catching and great for a casual day. The flared bottom is also very on trend and perfect with some cute ankle boots.



These Primark culottes are light and airy, perfect for a summers day in London. I dressed them down by pairing with a Boohoo.com cropped cami and a Boohoo.com black bomber which was £6.00 in the sale.




Lastly, I have styled this white denim jacket, which cost £1.00 from an East London Vintage/Thrift warehouse.



I juxtaposed a casual denim jacket with some smart high waisted trousers from Primark. Paper bag waist trousers are my new favourite thing! I find they flatter my shape and can be styled very easily.

To finish, I wore some black patent brogues with some glitter socks and a simple black cami.

Which was your favourite outfit?
