Last Week's Collaboration on Leather.

Hi Everyone! Happy Wednesday! This week is our second week of collaboration where we will be focusing on the current trend, monochromatic. When you say monochromatic, a lot of people think of black and white. Although you can not go wrong with black and white, the monochromatic trend can also be achieved through colors as well, which I think is very chic, especially if you have a monochromatic look in bright red. For me, I styled the monochromatic trend in black to make it easier on the eye at the office.

When styling the monochromatic trend, I like to add in different textures to break up the outfit. For today's outfit, I decided to break up the all black outfit by wearing a lace top and adding suede d'Orsay pumps.The lace adds a more feminine touch, especially against these wooden doors. I originally paired it with this striped trench coat since I thought the black stripes continued with the monochromatic trend, but as I look at the pictures some more, I think the trench coat might of actually taken away the monochromatic element. 

What do you think? How do you style the monochromatic trend?

I hope you enjoyed this week's collaboration on the monochromatic trend. I'm super excited for the next topic since it is a rather unusual one. I can't wait to share it with you next Wednesday! In the meantime, be sure to check out last week's trend on leather here.

Thank you so much for reading! :)


  1. These pictures are gorgeous Christine! Love the contrast of the wooden door against the b&w outfit. I actually like the touch of the striped trench coat - brightens up the look versus an all black trench. Plus, I like how the stripes of the trench tie into the subtle stripes of your skirt :)

  2. You look very elegant & glam in this outfit. Great choices for each piece! I'm really enjoying this series and seeing the looks that each of you put together. :)

  3. So beautiful! I love your classic style!
