Keeping it Simple with Monochrome

Keeping it Simple. 

This blog post is about keeping it simple by pairing up the classic black and white look but adding a pop on neon to give it that spice. 

Whatever the occasion monochrome is always the safest look, you will undoubtably look sophisticated, sexy and damn right classy. Whether you wear a cute little black dress with a white blazer or a stripped pair of slouch trousers with a plain cami, you're sure to turn  heads.

1. New Look; £16.99
2. Topshop £49
3. River Island £10
4. Motel £38

However with the summer days finally starting to show, its time to add a flash of colour to the monochrome look. With neon being a huge hit for this years summer season, why not glam it up a bit with one of the great vibrant accessories on the market at the moment! Whether you want a chunky statement piece or a dainty more sutler piece there is something out there for everyone. 

I personally think that sometimes shoppers are more reluctant on splashing out on jewellery that is at the higher price range- well I certainly am. This season New Look has some great products, which are all at the less pricey end of the jewellery market with their starting price being about £5/6. Zara and H&M also have some great statement pieces for the summer starting around the £15 price mark, however I have found that they have a lot more to offer in store than they do online, so unfortunately I can't put up many of their products up as examples.  

The Statement Pieces

1. Zara £19.99

Above is only a small selection of what the high street has to offer in terms of neon and colour in general, however the selections that the high street shops have are growing more and more each day as we reach those summer months,  so keep an eye out.

I hope this provides you all with an insight into how you can incorporate the monochrome with some summer vibes and still look fabulous!

Keep checking back on this post as I will adding some pictures of some of my very own favourite monochrome outfits.

Peace and Love
