I am still in a monochromatic phase. The pieces I choose to wear and decide to purchase nowadays, only consist of the colours of black and white, and the shades in between. There's something really cool and daring about mixing textures/prints in an outfit together. But I always have guidelines when doing this mix and match: 1. the pieces must have some common elements OR... 2. there should be an item included in the outfit that links them together. For instance, this lace top is quite subtle in both pattern and texture, the colour is very neutral and calm as well which perfectly links the tweed skirt with bold stripey jacket. So the second rule can be ticked off. The skirt and jacket both consists of only black and white, something in common between the two, which ticks box number one.
For shoes, I chose these creepers because they are super comfortable and they give me the extra height i need desperately. Those two are my shoes' criteria. And shoes have to look pretty awesome as well of course.
