Monochrome With A Twist

| Monochrome With A Twist! |

Leonardo Da Vinci once said that "Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication" and the quote has resonated with me for years. It's something I like to keep in mind when planning my outfits because it relates to fashion really well as I believe the power of a simplistic outfit can emanate sophistication. 

When I think of simplicity in terms of fashion I think of black, white and grey hues. Monochrome is a classic combination that has stood the test of time but recently I've been taking my monochrome outfit up a notch by incorporating grey pieces into the look. We're all aware that there are 50 shades of grey available {excuse the pun! *wink wink*} but I find that a soft grey like the shade of my coat and boots is the key to simplicity. It looks effortless whilst the black adds depth to the look. I love pairing dark greys with black also but I find that you don't get the same minimalistic aura that you get with the soft grey. Adding small touches of white adds a light airy feel to the look which is an important aspect of my style, especially during the bleak winter months.

A simple way to create this ambience in your daily outfits would be to pair a soft grey coat like this Missguided coat with a chunky scarf like this black, white and grey one. The soft grey shade of the coat will look delicate against the intensity of the black and dark grey tones of the scarf, whilst the white will lighten the outfit. I've also added a pair of leather gloves to my look as this adds texture to the outfit. I purchased mine in Dunnes a few years ago but this Asos pair looks beautiful *insert love heart eye emoji*
