You can definitely feel spring in the air!
It’s a lot brighter in the mornings and I’m looking forward to being properly able to ditch the tights and jackets. For now, as requested, I thought I’d show you how I plan to style the monochrome fashion trend this spring season. I also had to make some use of all the monochrome pieces I have been buying lately lol (haul video here).
The key thing for me with styling monochrome is not being afraid to accessorise with lots of bright colours, whether it be with your makeup (cant go wrong with a red lip) and/or accessories. Done nicely, it always looks good and adds a nice contrast to what could otherwise be a boring black and white palette.
I also think you can also mix things up with clashing black and white prints. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything appropriate in my wardrobe to demonstrate this but have a look at my video below for my styling in motion! You can tell I got a bit carried away making the video as it took me absolutely AGES to make as I was so busy and was being stupidly pedantic lol, so if you enjoy it please let me know and make my day!
Outfit details as described in the video:

Topshop stripe split side tee – I love that this is only £15 and so versatile!: (available here)
