Your Monochrome Style Guide

Your Monochrome Style Guide

I've long been a fan of black + white accessories as it ticks the stand out and versatile boxes in one go and lets face it, we all want a hard-working accessory to get a ton of wear out of.  You need only look at Chanel, Celine or Anya Hindmarch for a sweep of black and white down the catwalk.   Pintrest and instagram are awash with monochromatic styling be it for a cool flat lay or living room decor.

With so many beautiful prints, patterns, plaids, animal print or simple stripes to choose from, we can all agree that black and white is FAR from boring.  Whether you are blocking white with black or throwing a pattern into the mix - monochrome styling has never been more exciting.  And I can't think of a better look to transcend seasons or accessory colourway that gives such longevity and great wear.

Here are some of my favourite b+w bags from Elyse & i, as well as other covetable accessories or clothes.  I've picked brands that I know and love for their quality - like the stylish and comfortable pumps by Emblem (I have several pairs!).  Or brands that have great delivery to Singapore - like Mister Zimi and Shopbop.

To a few pieces that I'm craving from my fave independent stores such as the gorgeous tortoiseshell sunglasses from Paperbag Princess - you can never have enough sunnies especially if you are like me and keep on losing them!
Hope you enjoy the edit...
