How to wear the monochrome trend

I'm a little tired and extra busy due to 2 weeks off work at my day time job and surrently sitting with my hubby's mom cat so I practically a little late with posting all of those precious Italy outfits which I promise do so shortly. And so far I'll leave you with this guest post regarding an awesome trend I'm wearing mow

One of the key trends for this summer is monochrome. This pairing of black and white could be blocks of colour or even stripes and spots. However you choose to wear it, this classic combination can be used for both smart and casual outfits, so how do you make sure it works for you?

Accessories
One of the most effective ways to wear a current trend is to use it to accessorise. There are many ways this can be done including bags, shoes, scarves and jewellery. To fit with this season's monochrome style, you will find many accessories available in black or white, or a striking combination of the two. A great way to wear this trend would be to team a black dress with a black and white oversized clutch or wear a black and white scarf to lighten your outfit. Alternatively, there are shoes available in a huge variety of styles to suit every budget from flat pumps with a black and white dogtooth check to plain black or plain white wedges and heels.

Tops and bottoms
If you have chosen to wear a black and white outfit then there are several ways this can be done. Teaming stripes or spots on the top, with a solid colour at the bottom works well, so, for example, pairing black trousers or a black skirt with a black and white striped top is a great look. Alternatively, wearing a white skirt or trousers, particularly if they are made from a material such as linen, is great for summer. They can be made dressier with the addition of a smart top in either plain black or a combination of black and white. If you are more daring then why not try wearing spots or stripes on the bottom and matching them with a solid black or white top or blouse, which can be very effective.

Dresses and jackets
If you prefer to wear a dress to trousers or a skirt then there are plenty to choose from that provide a 'nod' to the monochrome look. White dresses look very pretty and are great for summer however there are plenty of black dresses for summer which can be lightened with a black and white jacket or accessories, making them seem lighter and more suitable for the warmer weather. A great example of how this can work brilliantly is if you are attending a wedding or some similar formal occasion and you are going with a plain black dress, adding a monochrome striped blazer to this will lighten your whole outfit as well as making you stand out!

Hopefully this has provided some insight into how you can wear the monochrome trend wisely and effectively. The key to this trend is probably that less is more. If you are not sure, then it is probably a good idea to stick with monochrome accessories that you can pair with a plain black or white outfit. Alternatively, wearing solid blocks of black or white can be a good idea, rather than stripes or spots, which are not something that everyone can get away with!

Milca Lozada fashion show

I missed it so much and I didn’t even fully realized it. Last weekend I got to attend to local fashion show and it was super fun! Local Cancun based designer Milca Lozada presented her collection. Moreover not only the designs are super pretty but the collection is made from recycled materials, mostly denim. I loved the 00s vibe so much as well eco trend with sustainability. Also I am overjoyed to be a part of strong local community.  My outfit… it’s hard to say anything about it. I went on whim and I believe it turned out pretty good. I don’t know why but lately I really an into crop tops.  P.S. sorry for the photos, I didn’t have my camera on me.  I was wearing: Cuidado con el Perro top and shoes Monki bra top Uniqlo jeans   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

New glasses

Hello! I had cooperation with Glassesshop again! I am super excited to show you my newest additions to glasses collection. This time I didn't get to choose I simply got their new designs to try and review. In short: I liked each. Which one do you think looks best on me? Review: the frames are lightweight, very comfortable and provide nice protection. I had no issues wearing for a long time so I assume they are great for people who wear glasses full time not only occasionally ike I do. The glass is made with coating, easy to wash with provided fabric and hard to scratch (that is my experience from before). The color are bright and generally the frames look just like pictured on the website. Each frame is made perfectly following my prescribtion, there is no even slight discomfort on that part (my eye vision is different on each eye, nearly perfect on one and way worse on the other). Each frame comes with protective case, this time it was simple plastic, not as fun as potions befor
