It's a trend thing / Black and White Monochrome

1. Obsessed with this look that was captured on the streets at Paris Fashion Week {source} / 2. This blogger has monochrome styled simple and perfect {source} / 3. There was something about this look that really caught my eye {source} / 4. Leave it to the Olsen twins to look awesome and matching in monochrome {source}

Is anyone else going crazy over the huge black and white monochrome trend right now?  I find it interesting because when spring and summer hits I love to wear colour, especially with pastels and mega brights trending.  As much as colour will remain popular this season it's still in major competition with black and white and I seriously can't get enough of it.  Let's be serious, anyone can rock this trend and I bet you can come up with something that's already in your existing wardrobe.  A lot of the images in this post depict the trend worn as separates, basically colour blocking with black and white, but that's not your only option on how to wear it.  If you like to wear prints you have so many to choose from.  Stripes will never go out of style and checkers are hot this season, although not for everyone, or go geometric!  Going monochrome is amazing because you really do have freedom on how you wear it. The street style images above are a great example of this.  Similar to the first image you could wear white denim with a sweater to be super casual or if you are meetings friends for drinks you could add a bit of edge like in image two where she has chosen leather detailed leggings or finally in image three make it a little dressy for a special event.  Think about the occasion and dress accordingly sticking to separates, adding prints or mixing both.  You can't really go wrong with how you wear this trend!
