BLACK, WHITE & EVERYTHING NICE: AN ACHROMATIC OUTFIT

I’ll admit, colour often scares me – and I do say this with the utmost respect for all colours of the rainbow. Whether as a day, evening or nighttime look, there’s just something so effortless about an achromatic outfit.

This particular look fairs best as a daytime or weekend casual outfit. It’s just too damn difficult to fancy it up during winter, wouldn’t you say? If you consider this winter, well, winter.

I’ve got so much love for this plaid button-down I’ve had to make a conscious effort not to over-wear it (lest people wonder if my wardrobe is limited to this shirt alone). Of course, pants like these are a major staple in my fall/winter wardrobe. They’re like the legging’s cooler cousin. This particular pair is from Zara and without a doubt my favourite ever. Like, ever. It’ll be a sad day indeed when they make their way to the donation or garbage bin.

In any case, I find it’s the little details that can take any outfit from ‘blah’ to ‘chea’. Case in point: these boots. Also featured in FALL CULOTTES OOTD, they’re my favourite at the moment. I love that they can be paired with a casual outfit and a dressy one, too. It’s the gold zipper, I think – it makes that understated statement if you know what I mean.

Sophistication can also be found in statement accessories. I’m all about this Sadie Necklace from Rox ‘N’ Bunny. It’s been an accessory repeat of mine for some time. While it’s a statement necklace it’s not too flashy (like most I own) so it lends itself beautifully to an achromatic outfit and a casual one at that.

This Michael Kors rose-gold tortoise shell timepiece gifted to me by parents for Christmas 2015 is a must for me, too. Again, it’s not too flashy making it the ideal wrist candy for an achromatic outfit.
