Monochromatic Trend: White and Black

Monochromatic is defined as having or consisting of one color or hue. And when you love to wear one of two different colors all the time this becomes a favorite trend. The two main colors I often wear on my blog is black and white – often all black or hues of black. This spring I’d like to gravitate towards wearing more white – with the hopes that I’d be able to survive the day without getting a stain or dirt on my outfit. And because I am so indecisive it took me some time to decide which hue to share.

This monochromatic trend isn’t relatively new either, each season many tend to favor a specific color hue – this season it happens to be white. I’ve seen it all over Instagram, Pinterest and in stores… most recently at Zara. It was an extremely inspiring moment to see the display of all white monochromatic outfits, more notably wide leg pants.

Since my body shape is more curvy/pear shape I prefer to wear wide leg dress pants that are not black. Any light colored pant is very difficult for me to wear which I’ve discussed in another post about styling for your shape here. As excited as I am to wanting to wear white, I have to proceed with caution… the shape and cut of the pant has to be flattering and in this case, the wide leg pant trend is very much in!

Zara featured many wide legged pants:

Express also has some great options. It is no secret they are my go-to for jeans and even dress pants! They have some great options for white jeans too:

For any monochromatic look, you can pair it with a statement top or keep it simple with a tee. Obviously, I couldn’t decide between either of them so I’m going to share both (links in order of photos):

You can even take this to a more business chic level by adding a blazer or chic vest.

As much as I am LOVING these all white items for a new spring monochromatic look. You know that I can’t live without having a black monochromatic look. A great way that I’ve found to add some oomph to a black monochromatic look is to throw in some texture or a different neckline. Of course, you can stick with the classic black suit which never goes out of style but this spring when I do wear all black (because you know it is going to happen) I want to be sure that it’s with a twist.

And you can pair these looks with whichever footwear your heart desires…. for me you know it is going to be a pair of sneakers!
