Monochrome Edge

When it comes to our choice in fashion some things never get old! I honestly don’t remember a time in my life when I haven’t loved wearing monochrome outfits. There’s just something about black and white fashion that does it for me. Firstly colour coordination is the name of my style game. Black and white items always make for hot staple pieces in the wardrobe and always make things convenient when you’re on the go.

Yours Clothing recently got in touch with me and asked me if I would like to select a few items in their current collection. The first thing I saw was this hot black and white stripe shirt. The item to me worked as both a hot item I could wear to the office but also something I could switch up. Reminiscent of a referee shirt, the slightly loose fit and double thick stripes were what caught my attention. Due to the fact that I have a large bust I always up-size with shirts or front fastening items. Wearing this one in a size 26/28 I not only have plenty of room and feel comfortable in the light weight item but I find that when I want a more of a modest look this fit is perfect. A monochrome item in and of itself!

Now those of you who know me know that I can be as girly and demure as the next woman but I do love my edgy items. Shiny things have always caught my eye. The thing is, I like wearing bright and garish things despite the fact that some people think us big women shouldn’t. Latex, vinyl and wet look items have been available from plus brands everywhere. Perfect if you like monochrome looks. Vinyl and wet look leggings just happen to be something I have a slight obsession with. I selected this pair in a size 26/28 because fabrics of this style have little to no stretch. Vinyl isn’t breathable on the skin either. You can see by my photos that I could have selected these in a size 24 for a more tailored fit.

I never used to be a woman phased much by footwear but that has changed over time. I did think when I was younger that you only needed 1 pair of black boots. Laughable when I think about it now. I have casual boots, sexy boots, sophisticated boots and those I can wear anywhere. This pair of heeled ankle boots had an edge to them that I really like. I should note that I find these extremely comfortable and could see myself walking a fair distance in them. I think that they compliment this outfit really well.

When it comes to my wardrobe I like a little bit of everything. Black and white items we all know go with every colour out there but there’s just something funky about putting them with each other. Monochrome suits every person on the planet. You simply can’t go wrong! You will definitely see more of the style from me in the future!

    I love your leggings, they were the first thing I’ve noticed in your outfit and thought how cool they are. The shirt is really nice as well and, as you say, it can be wore at the office too.

    Such a fabulous outfit, you look amazing. The monochrome shirt goes so well with the leggings, and the boots finish it off perfectly. Casual enough for most days, smart enough for drinks out.
