In part one of my trend report for S/S 13 (which you can read here), I talked about how monochrome and stripes are going to be huge next season after being seen on designer catwalks such as Marc Jacobs and Versus.
Well, I found a certain sleeveless shirt in my wardrobe – from last A/W 11 – which consists of horizontal, monochrome stripes of different thicknesses. I haven’t worn it for a while and, to be honest, I’d forgotten I had it (does that ever happen to you?) but I decided it was about time for it to be worn again!
Also, how awesome are these Pretty Polly tights? As are quite provocative, mimicking suspenders, I thought I’d team them with my black peep toe wedges with studded straps and dress up the look for a smart casual occasion. I then added a studded belt, to co-ordinate with the studs on the shoes, and fancy silver jewellery.
Sleeveless Shirt – Topshop
Denim Shorts – MOTO at Topshop
Tights – Pretty Polly
Wedges – New Look
The result was a sexy monochrome look, proving that different styles and trends can be mixed and still look fashionable together.
I’ve said it before, but I do love experimenting and clashing trends that you wouldn’t normally put together. Try it – you might find that you come up with something really interesting!
(UPDATE – This look has been featured on Look magazine’s ‘Street Style Fashion’ section of the website here.
