Mad for Monochrome

Does anyone else find it really difficult to dress for this time of year? The Spring drops have already began to hit the high street and sit alongside the hangover stock from winter, which is usually in the sale but neither seems appropriate. With the new year comes a desire to start afresh and dip your toe into the new trends but the freezing temperatures and icy weather make these pieces completely impractical and inappropriate. Apart from willing the warmer months to hurry up the only solution I can find is to go for classic looks, with monochrome being a regular choice. Here are a couple of outfits that I've worn over the past week or so featuring this black and white theme

Faux fur is a cold weather essential so I squeezed three pieces featuring furry fabrics into one outfit. The sweatshirt with fur patch is from Zara, The fur lined skirt is from misguided and the jacket is a New Look number which I've had for a couple of years. The loafers are from Linzi and the bag is M&S

I bought these gingham trousers from Primark a couple of weeks ago and they'll be great for Spring with a shirt and pair of pumps. The cropped, fluffy jumper was a Topshop sale bargain and the boots are a past season buy from New Look. Being on the short side, standard high street trousers can be slightly long in the leg, especially when worn with boots. These will probably look better in the summer with a pair of chunky heels
