Spring 60s monochrome three ways
Monochrome is an iconic 60s style – and it’s really easy to relegate it to winter. After all, black and white are colours we associate with the chilly season…
…but I’m here to say “hang on!”
With a little bit of styling savvy, you can turn monochrome into the perfect spring statement.
This Sunday, I’ve taken a cute, sleeveless monochrome shift dress from Closet London and styled it three ways – hopefully to show you how versatile monochrome can be this time of year.
Number one is simple and effective: mix and match different monochrome pieces for a statement spring look. This is great for work, or evenings out. I’m wearing an H&M black and white top and Jones peep-toe heels (see if you can spot my photographer…who has started charging for his services, I might add).
Number two pits monochrome against pillar box red. it’s an eye popping look and a style I’ve been loving for well over a decade.
I’m wearing the Closet dress with a tomato-red shrug and matching H&M knit tights with flats from Clarks.
This combo really endures and rocks for a day out to the seaside…try it.
And finally, number three: have you ever tried layering dresses?
It creates such a unique look and pairing the monochrome with a soft pistachio green makes it totes spring friendly.
The pastel brogues are from Office and the green 60s-inspired shirt dress is by Cici London. I’d probs wear this for day or evening: I just need the right occasion, frankly.
Have I convinced you? Give monochrome a go 60s-istas!
