Hello world and welcome back to a new fashion post. When I began my fashion section here on Life With MCM, I never really knew just how much I’d fall in love with it. Not only that, I’ve fallen in love with finding my style and also filling my wardrobe with some new pieces that I actually really adore. I typically love wearing quite a minimalistic colour palette and then jazz it up with a pop of colour here and there.
When I say a minimalistic colour palette, I generally wear black, greys, khakis and nudes/blush pinks – anything that’s easy to mix and match for different outfits and styles. Don’t get me wrong, I do switch is up sometimes with say a bright red top or an orange skirt, but I really do love a minimalistic wardrobe. For summer I do tend to stick with the lighter end of those shades and anything white always catches my eye. This adorable little white frill top is from Zara was one of those purchases that I just had to have. I knew I could wear it with so many outfits from trousers to skirts, which you can also mix with different textures from denim to cottons and silk.
With a monochrome style there is always room for some bright accessories, so for this look I chose this gorgeous red bag from Zara. Red is such a classic colour when wearing black and white and quite frankly, I want to wear this colour palette more and more. Red has always been a shade I’m drawn to when I comes to brighter colours (as well as mustard yellow as I’m all about that right now) and this is such a staple bag for my wardrobe now. It’s slouchy faux leather material means you can fit a lot inside and looks effortless with any outfit. The silver metallic detailing on the handles makes the bag feel sophisticated and luxe.
Zara really are doing it for me at the minute, especially with their bags and shoes. There’s a particular pair of mustard yellow heels from there that I’ve had my eye on for sometime, I think it’s about time I got them. As I’m one for a monochrome outfit, it’s so refreshing to see bright and easy to wear accessories hit the high street shops. I think I’ll be having many more monochrome moments this year so I can add a pop of colour here and there as I love shopping for accessories.
