Monochrome looks are a huge trend for the spring and summer – but it’s not all black and white – this great look has got a make-over with bright or subtle colour blocks having made a striking appearance on the catwalks! One great way to make your own unique mark and which helps pull off a monochrome look is to think stylishly colourful or patterned bags.
Every year, fashionistas get spoilt by this wonderful trend – after all most girls have something black or white in their wardrobes which means it’s a great trend to follow. No one needs to go out and break the bank when to buy a completely new wardrobe. But a little shopping spree for accessories may well be on the cards.
This monochromatic look can be superb especially if you get your accessories just right. It goes without saying that ladies leather bags of every shape and design as well as shoes feature high on the list of how to achieve the best monochrome look ever – but then so much more plays an important part in your look too – with less being definitely more!
- Handbags and More Handbags
To add a splash of contrast to a monochrome look, think handbags. There are some amazing choices from Jane Shilton – to name just one brand. Black and white bags and especially spotty clutch bags are a great choice to pair up with a monochrome look – think solid colour Jane Shilton handbags!
Clutch bags are hot this spring, they add a finishing touch to a monochromatic look and they’re so ladylike! The fact they are small works well with the look – again less is more when it comes to monochrome looks.
2. Belts are a Must
Choose a great belt to add a finishing touch to a monochrome look – a little white dress can be jazzed up by simply adding the right belt to the outfit – the same goes if you wear a white shirt and skirt. Thinner belts draw the eye to waistlines and if thin will give the illusion of a smaller waist!
3. What About a Trilby?
If you’re into hats, then think about wearing a trilby with a monochrome outfit. This works especially well with a smart monochrome trouser suit and creates a really classic look that just never seems to fade – it’s oh, so sexy and hot!
4. Scarves are a Must Have Accessory with a Monochrome Look
Scarves offer a burst of colour to a monochrome look – red, yellow, fuschia or anything else you fancy adds a touch of neon to your chosen monochrome outfit. For a subtler look, think pastels which work really well by adding a discreet burst of colour to your look.
You can wear a scarf in so many ways, around your neck, around your waste, tied to stylish ladies leather bags or the scarf can used to tie back your hair. Whichever way you decide to accessorise your outfit with a scarf – it looks brilliant and adds a well-chosen finishing touch to the look you want to create.
5. Shoes Can Do It!
Picking the perfect pair of shoes for your monochrome look can be fun – think solid colours but with neat, subtle details incorporated into their design. Black suede wedges are a great choice with skirts or pants. Different textures work really well too. Monochrome looks are one of the easiest to play around with and it’s fun to create a unique look that’s so you – choosing the right leather ladies bags to complete the look is a must!
