The Style Post: Monochrome, meet Suzie.

Apart from all blacks, there’s nothing I love more than a monochrome outfit. It’s simple and looks put together with minimal effort.

I picked this skirt up at the weekend from New Look (note: some of their stuff this season rocks! – my rings are also New Look), I think it will be perfect for work, especially if I have somewhere to be after! It will also look great with sandals in the summer if I’m not feeling too colourful (or mini February heat wave like last year).

I also took this as the perfect opportunity to give my Topshop cropped jumper another outing – I bloody love a crop top! Throw a leather jacket over the top (standard procedure with me really) and you’re good to go!

On my nails this week I’ve been wearing OPIs ” I’m Suzie and I’m a chocoholic” an almost completely appropriate name, other than the fact that I can’t eat chocolate! I digress, it’s a lovely chocolatey brown/red colour that warms up a monochrome outfit perfectly.

Monochrome is definitely one of my favourite trends at the moment – let me know if you would like to see an outfit video dedicated to black and white outfits as I would love to do that!

    Been loving monochrome lately as well – so easy to brighten up as well with a bright scarf or some colored pants when looking for something new.
