Long Live Black And White: Embrace Monochrome

Monochrome: Long Live Black And White on vickiarcher.com

My day, with a comment about Trousers, was made.
“I’m only wearing so much black until they invent a darker color.” One of my readers so cleverly penned.

I desperately want to wear the lighter shades on the bottom half but the sad truth is, the darker for me the better. I wear white jeans if I can wear a longer style shirt or sweater on top. My days of tight white are relegated to memory unless the yoga and gym result 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 my darker pants.

Blouses with pants are easy to wear. I find the white blouse with the darker pant a no brainer when I want to get ready in a rush. A black loose-fitting blouse over a white jean is also a fab alternative.

Elegant, bohemian, romantic or man style; it is the moment to take your pick of the monochrome. xv

You know me Vicki, I am a black and white lover! In fact today for work, I’m wearing a black turtleneck with a black satin-type skirt with silver embroidery and dangling silver earrings. I LOVE my monochrome look!


can affiliate to your readers quote. Black…a colour even I like in summer but elegant and always as a no brainer with white shirts or blouses.
