Monochrome Mondays

I don’t think that there is a better way to kick off the week than in a killer monochrome outfit. While I do have a lot of different colours and hues in my wardrobe, it’s nice every once and a while to tone it down for a day and rock the colours that represent everything and nothing simultaneously. I always find it so bizarre that black and white, two colours that we see every single day for our lives makes such a statement when they are both coordinated into a thoughtful and freshly styled outfit. In a way for me it always screams power and maybe that’s why I enjoy wearing monochrome colours from time to time.

   This past weekend I have been doing nothing but staring at my laptop screen trying to learn as much as I can in a short period for my ongoing final exams for this college year. Of course, while studying the attire is more along the lines of sweats/ lounge pants and a hoodie but to be honest after wearing that for a few days there was nothing that I wanted more than to dress up a little, finally to put on a proper pair of pants. While raiding my wardrobe these two pieces kept catching my eye so I thought why not look as powerful as I want to feel!

The outfit

Top – Zara

Trousers – H&M

Boots – Office

Jacket – Vero Moda

After putting this outfit together, I rediscovered my appreciation for these simply elegant yet effectively statement pieces. I, like so many people are quick to overlook those pieces that don’t scream ‘look at me’ and yet more often than not those understated pieces are what I admire most about other people’s outfits. I most assuredly will be adorning more of these stunningly muted pieces in the coming weeks and is a look that has firmly made is place at the front of my wardrobe!
