Black and white outfits are anything but boring! Personally, I love the contrast between those achromatic colours. I also think that the monochrome look is irresistible, because it is a style and color combination that never goes out of fashion. If you want, you can add a strong colour as a spot of colour.
Since the outfit is rather calm and harmonious, you can pimp it up with different fabrics and patterns. When I last visited the Milian Boutique in Düsseldorf, I have seen a blouse with quilted details for the first time and was enthusiastic about it. It is an absolute must-have with its cute details on the neck and the cuffs. We all know quilted bags and shoes, but this kind of blouses were totally new to me. Furthermore, the blouse is really oversized and you all know that I love this comfy fit.
Did you also know that Mules and Pumps in this quilted leather style are already part of the latest collection by Bottega Veneta. For sure, they found their way to my wish list.
But there was another piece that aroused my interest: A high waisted, faux leather pants by Maison Margiela. The variation of materials makes the outfit even more interesting. In general, the latest collection has lots of eye-catcher which makes it really hard for me to choose only a few pieces, instead of buying the whole collection. Although I really love buying clothes, I want to make sure that I find a long-term use for it.
Statement accessories are perfect for this black & white look and since I am a big fan of Maison Margiela, I had to grab the quilted glam slam bag in white. The sun glasses are part of a collaboration of Maison Margiela and Mykita. As expected, the result is impressive.
How about these Statement Velour Sandals with removable pearl and strass details? I really adore them. They are by Magda Butrym. I was so happy when I found them at net-a-porter in the right size.
I hope that this blog post was helpful to some of you who struggled with combining monochrome looks. Stay tuned for my next blogpost!
