When the weather is constantly throwing curve balls it’s good to have go-to accessories that can go with any cold or warm weather outfit. No matter how many colorful combinations you can put together, monotone looks and black and white prints create an assertive but corporate combination. Especially since the black and white trend has been on the catwalks this spring and summer. The flawless duo are undoubtedly fashionable.
I caught this Fashionista strolling through the amazing weather in her monochromatic palette and her printed shoulder bag was just waiting to be photographed. Prints are constantly evolving and debuting in different pieces of clothing. From tops to bottoms, handbags to footwear, digital prints and monotones are perfect for any fashionable ensemble. This season, prints and monochromatic ensembles are a fun way to spice up your look.
Today’s Fashionista goes for a relaxed look that was surprisingly accented with some signature pieces. She starts the base of her ensemble with a couple of classics: plain black denim capris from J.Crew, a printed sleeveless button-up from Forever 21 and a white tank top, which helps boost the print in her top. The focus is on her perfectly matched printed handbag from J&W, which I might add is functional enough for an all-day schedule. Her perfectly matched braided black leather belt from Mango and leather flats from Steve Madden add the perfect amount of simplicity and style to her look. And it needs no explaining as to why her amazing customized studded vintage eyeglasses from Fabulous Fanny’s are so classy and attractive. The tattoo on her forearm also makes up for the rest of her casual, peppy look.
If you want to try to recreate this look, black denim pants or palazzo pants are a great option to pull off on a rainy day, especially if worn with a pair of espadrilles. So, monochromatic and contrasting color palettes can bring you a new change to your style. To add a zing to your look, find a cheeky umbrella that will work perfectly to complement your style.
