Not sure how to pair your monochrome pieces to achieve a monochrome look? Keep reading for guidance on achieving your best monochrome looks.
On some rainy and chilly days, I want to look stylish too, why not? So I created this chic monochrome look for work with basic and classy hues – black and white. I’m wearing this pleated pants from Zara, which are super light and comfortable with a simple black ribbed top. The waistcoat is also quite light which is great for if it gets warmer. I know some jobs require that people wear just white and black or all black, as this is usually associated with formal wears, or it has juts been the timeless and traditional look for most job environments. If this is you, here’s how I achieve mine most times.
Fun fact: Black absorbs the most heat while white absorbs the least heat. Therefore I can keep warm with the black pieces when it gets chilly, while white sorts keeps me cooler. So when you are navigating through your closet and you are aware of the temperature, this fact I’ve shared with you can help you pair your monochrome look accordingly.
I also played with subtle textured patterns, especially with the pleated pants and monochrome stripes on the waist coat to add so fun to this look. So I only styled my black and white look a.k.a monochrome look differently. However this is just to give you an idea on how you can create a chic and classy look using the basic hues you already have in your closet -black and white.
