We love monochrome and the look often featured at Romantique and Rebel: From 60s geometric black and white checks to block stripes. The Salt and Pepper Style looks pure in stripes and lend themselves to be paired with a bright lip, neon shoes or a bright handbag. Let your imagination run free!
Above: I am wearing a black and white striped dress from Max & Co, fitted at the top with a puffy, pleated skirt. Keeping in the with the minimalistic tone, I chose a white mini bag and a breton striped boucle jacket.
The Monochrome trend was seen everywhere this summer SS2013, from Moschino to Marc Jacobs to Dolce & Gabbana. The Sicilian designer duo created a block striped collection inspired by Sicily’s striped sun loungers and sun umbrellas. Rich fabrics such as brocade give the casual look a luxurious feel.
My dress is made of a stiff kind of polyester which makes the pleated skirt look puffy and voluminous. Usually I shun 100% polyester garnments but I liked this dress so much that I had to made an exception. After all, the new generation of well made polyester are not as sweaty and itchy as they used to be years ago.
