Style Snippet: All Monochrome

Wednesday, 13 January 2016


I've never done a fully monochrome outfit, I know surprising! So I thought I'd show you one of my faves using some of my sales buys. 










Shirt: New Look
Jeans: Topshop Jonis
Shoes: Boohoo
Coat: Zara

I always so monochrome on other people and think that it looks amazing but I've never been able to pull it off; I don't know, I always just looked a bit dull. However, I picked up this linen shirt in the New Look sale and I think the white is nice and bright so it works better. I remember eying a shirt like this up in Topshop but it was £30 and I didn't want to pay that much, so when I saw this in the New Look sale I had to grab it. (I'll be posting soon about all my recent sale purchases)
Anyway, the shirt is a lovely length and is really easy to style, I think I'll be wearing a variation of the outfit for uni open days because it's smart but not overly done up. The jeans are just a staple in my wardrobe because they suck you in and make everything flow but the material is a bit thinner so it's still comfy. 
Then for my new shoes love!! On NYE I had a big incident with wearing heals that basically cut up my leg and made my feet hurt; they were strappy and some men thought it would be a great idea to smash some glass on the dance floor and guess who got glass in their foot, obviously it would be me. So I knew I had to get some more practical shoes and I picked these up from Boohoo. I love them because I dont buy real leather but I like the shoes to still look good quality and these are great. They still have that feminine touch that heels do because of the peep toe and tassels but they are a lot comfier and more practical. I wear them on nights out and with a simple outfit like this and they just dress everything up.
I dont know if you'd call the coat a coat or a cardigan? Anyway it's from Zara and it's the best thing I've bought. It's so comfy on the inside but it keeps you warm, plus because its an in-between of a coat and cardigan I get away with wearing it indoors. 

Hope you enjoyed this post! Do you like a monochrome look?

  2. I don't know what happened to me, I used to always wear bright colours but I've fallen into the monochrome trap. You look gorgeous! The coat, shoes, hair, I love it! I've never tried any jeans from Top Shop but I need some new ones so I might have a look there! Lovely outfit!

  3. I do monochrome with blue, I find black a little to harsh on my skin now but I used to live in black and white, my mum used to say my wardrobe looked like a newspaper. I love the outfit, I'm so jealous of people that can wear peep toe shoes, I always end up with blisters on my toes! Hope the uni open days go well

  6. Ooh yay, I love this - it screams comfort and stylish both at the same time! The jacket/coat looks insanely fluffy and soft that I'm jealous, I only have my hoodie (less so for going out haha) that I wear indoors with the similar lining but I can see how this just transitions very well with any outfit. Also love love love those heels too, they look so practical but so damn kewl. I'm definitely not a heels kinda gal, I practically live in flats but I'd love to stomp around in block heels and the ones you have are perfect! I recently got a pair of thigh highs though, which I'm absolutely loving at the moment ^_^
