Time to try out the monochrome trend. Well, I've been trying it on and off for a while now as I mainly wear black and white or cream and black. Or all black for fun. 'What an adventurer!' I hear you cry! When I saw this top on a solo shopping trip (terrible for the purse, good for the soul) to the Trafford Centre a while back, I knew I had to have it, and that I'd wear it a lot. Which I have done, so I know this was a good buy. It's really easy to throw on over black skinnies and boots, as shown, or tucked into a black skater skirt with ballet pumps for a prettier look. I'm not a massive fan of the sleeves as they do nothing for my arms, but the slouchy fit and great aztec mirrored pattern won me over and I occasionally get my arms out now! I'm also in love with this necklace from Primark, I have the gold version too. And they're very similar to one I saw in Topshop a while ago but at a fraction of the price. Winner. Have you tried the monochrome trend? Have you done it a bit edgy or stayed safe like me?
