My day, with a comment about Trousers, was made.
I desperately want to wear the lighter shades on the bottom half but the sad truth is, the darker the better. I wear white jeans at a pinch and only if they are boyfriend style. The days of tight white are relegated to memory unless the yoga and gym results in some kind of miracle.
What I have noticed is I have a penchant for monochrome lately; especially the white blouse. I am not wearing the classic button down man-style shirt but the more feminine, embellished with adorned sleeve style of blouse with the dark pants.
It’s warmer in Provence than London so blouses and pants with the addition of a sweater for the evening should be about right. I find the white blouse with the darker pant such an easy look to wear and as blouses have had a huge comeback in the last few seasons, the choices are fabulous.
Elegant, bohemian, romantic or man style; it is the moment to take your pick of the monochrome. xv
