There is nothing easier than pairing black and white pieces. Where it gets harder, is when working with embellishments, leather and patterns. Monochrome is one of the trends seen on the runway for this Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 season. Instead of colour blocking monochrome seen in previous seasons, it is all about monochrome patterns and textures.

Here are some pictures:

White Everything

White Everything

Who said it can only be black everything? Who said that black is the only colour for a monochrome look? Girls, Aunties and Yummy Mummies it can be done in any colour. Orange everything, Blue everything or Yellow everything-it can be done! I will definitely try a monochrome look in one of these colours and post it for all of you to see.

For this outfit, it was the ‘White Everything Look’. Summer has been lovely this year, especially by British weather standards lol. Nothing is better than wearing white, which will keep you cool in the summer heat. An all white look signifies class, sophistication and all things diva. When I was wearing this outfit, I felt I was in Saint- Tropez *I wish*. Instead I was in good ole Essex.

Dots & Stripes

Dots & Stripes

Hey everyone. Hope all is well. I recently went to Paris for a little get away at the end of June. I will be put be putting the pictures up very soon.  This outfit is what I wore when I came back and took a stroll to my local shopping centre. When I came back, the heat wave in England had begun. I am loving this weather. I have been complaining, I will not deny it. Some days have apparently been hotter than Accra & Lagos, that is crazy!  At least there air con is in most places. I just detest, the ‘sweat and the thirsty look’ as I call it. It is not a good look! It is essential in this heat to be carrying a bottle of water and some spray. Anyway, let me stop complaining because I would definitely not like it if started to rain. Hey ho, the UK hardly gets this kind of weather so I am going to appreciate it. It gives me a chance to wear all my colourful and patterned clothing. I was hoping for the sun to come this summer and I got more than I wanted. 

Monochrome trend is a hot look for Summer 2013. The best thing about the look it can be versatile-so you can go for a edgy or  a classic look. One of the best ways to achieve the Monochrome look is to go for polka dots, colour blocking or stripes. I chose to clash a small polka dotted top with striped white and black jeans.
