The thing I love about the classic monochrome look is that each piece in a collection is both effortless with a laid-back kinda approach, but still with a hint of sophistication. In my opinion, black, compliments and suits everyone. It has so many positives- it's elegant; slimming; looks good with any hair colour.. You know what I mean!! Over the past few months, I've also been loving the colour white, despite the difficulty of not getting it dirty (it's hard when you're wearing pristine white shoes and your only way home is to walk across the grass)!
First on my wish list is these Black leather running shorts, from Topshop for £65, as I love how they can easily be worn with black tights and some heels for a night out or dressed down with a par of Vans. Even though the leather look makes an outfit look more on the edgy side, I still don't think I'll be running in these.
The cropped tops are a great way to add some edge to an outfit- either a pair of skinny jeans or even a floral midi skirt. I love this white Daytona Leather Halter Crop Top, from Rag & Bone. The open back and spaghetti straps make such a bold statement, the only thing is that it's $220, which makes me want to cry! An alternative crop is this Black Bralet, from Adidas, for only £19.
Ever since last summer, I have loved cut out boots! They make such a statement, even with the most simple outfits. These white chunky ASOS ANNOUNCEMENT Gladiator Ankle Boots are without a doubt my favourite shoes in ages, I definitely want a pair! Now only £44, means you don't have to break your bank balance. I have always loved Zara's shoe collection, even more so now since I've seen these white and black pointed Leather Two-Tone High Heel Court Shoe, for £49.99. I personally think these would be a bit harder to match with an outfit- I'm thinking just some vintage jeans.
Last on my Wish List, is this duck egg blue, oversized Zara coat. With blue being my favourite colour, and pretty pastels going to be very big this upcoming Spring/Summer, it's without saying why I love this coat so much. The cut just makes it look very stylish, but still quite 'girly'. Does somebody want to give me £79.99 for this little beauty?
Still trying to get to grips with all this blogging. It would be great to hear your opinions or if you have any tips for me please! What do you think of my Wish List? Would you pair these items with anything else?
