HOW TO WEAR MONOCHROME
We love everything stylish, everything chic. And – at the end of the day – anything we can pull off with minimal effort! So for us, MONOCHROME is literally ticking ALL the style boxes. It’s everywhere we look at the minute, in all manner of styles, patterns, shapes and textures. For all the right reasons, it’s completely TAKEN OFF. We’ve narrowed it down a bit and grouped together some of our top trend-hitting products in stripes, check and print to give you that little bit of inspo – and to spot anything your wardrobe might be missing.
Whether you opt for a subtle or dramatic take on the trend, the same rules apply: aim for something easy to work with, that can be worn time after time…
Arguably the EASIEST way to make an impact, polka dots have INSTANT appeal. Go BIG and BOLD with ATHENA MONOCHROME POLKA DOT AND STRIPED TOTE – enough to make a statement yet subtle enough to carry through from day to night. An added bonus - the reverse side is striped black and white, two styles for the price of one! Love it!
If this tote is too large for your look, opt for the cute and compact CELLADORA POLKA DOT SHOULDER BAG - come with gold Chanel inspired chain for extra chic vibes.
OR...if you're into textures over totes then the crinkled BELLE SCARF is the one for you! Frayed hem for more laid-back vibes.
PRINTS - YAY OR NAY?
You know you’re onto a winner when you find an accessory that can transform your outfit from drab to fab in an instant. We have selected our fave exotic monochrome prints to jazz things up, starting with MELIKA SCARF, this adds yet another gorge dimension to any ensemble –SO MUCH to love here! Complete with sleek belt for that fitted silhouette, we’ll be teaming with black skinnies and boots for a glam-meets-sophisticated look this year.
If scarves aren't your thing, welcome the ZIMBABWE TOTE into your life! This is a simple way to inject the monochrome trend into any outfit with minimal effort. Wear over an all-black ensemble to channel the monochrome vibe and make the tote a STAND OUT piece. Large enough to double up as a weekend bag and has a makeup bag to match! We just can’t resist.
Last, but by no means least - we have selected a simple yet elegant item - the SANCHA TUNIC. This is for all those ladies who like to follow a trend but want it to be lowkey. We have teamed our Sancha tunic up with white skinny jeans - a timeless look. The shape of the tunic itself is great for a daytime look or even a vacation vibe over a white bikini - perfect!!
Last but not least, if laidback styling is your look then check print is the way forward. The DARCY SCARF is perfect for this. Adding some greys here really softens the edges of the monochrome look, and means you can work it seamlessly into your off-duty get-ups. We know it's well into Spring Time, but with the Irish weather we get (rain, cry) a blanket scarf is never far away! The essentials don’t have to be boring!
And don’t forget…
Cadence Hat, Harlem Handbag, Jamila Scarf - The finishing touches of course! We’ve said it before but we’ll say it again – we’re all about no fuss, easy impact. Get together your base of chic black staples, and they’ll work wonders topping off your monochrome look!
