MONOCHROMATIC

 WEARING: Zara Knit, Front Row Pants, Polysemy Jewellery and Alexander Wang Heels.

There is no end to my love for monochromatic looks, in particular when it comes to head to toe white. Let's face it, anyone can do (and has done) all black. Don't get me wrong, you will most often find me in an all-black outfit, but sometimes is good to be challenged and try lighter tones. I have been asked many times why I dress in muted and monotone outfits. I have come to two conclusions: Number one it provides me with a certain privacy, and does not demand attention when you walk into a room. The second is that the use of monochromatic colour allows for a strong sense of visual cohesion. The relative absence of hue contrast can be offset by variations in layers, textures and accessories, while maintaining a minimal form. In this particular outfit I used Polysemy Jewellery pieces to add some depth to its simplicity.

  2. I love your outlook and general analysis on monotones and monochromatic looks. I've never given it much thought to be honest, all black is just what we do where I live. We love black and can't get enough so it's interesting to read this as I've never shed any light on it myself. I can't help but do so now though.

  15. i love your conclusions about the reasoning behind dressing muted. I think overdressing and was an insecure style of presenting oneself (atleast for me), so it's a beautiful reflection of that confidence also.
    ps very much looking forward to seeing you, less than a month now xx
