Black, white and all the shades in between – monochrome is such a classic palette to play around with for winter ladies!

Marvellous and Versatile in Monochrome from Off The Rails Fashionista

The houndstooth design has over time become a classic staple that every women should have in her wardrobe, whether it be a jacket, knit sweater or pair of pants. Because of its monotone nature it is so easy to pair with any fashion colour.

Here I am wearing a houndstooth design, from my What Women Want new winter range, in jegging style pants with a slimming black side panel, teamed with a classic white shirt, black jersey and sneakers. It would work equally well paired with black ankle boots and bright red/orange (like the one I am wearing here from Witchery) or even pink jersey, be bold and take your pick!

This black jumpsuit is the absolute bomb! I had to dash off quickly to a meeting this week so I slipped this on with my black sneakers, a black belt and printed scarf, and I felt so confident walking into my meeting. Casual, yet stylish and presentable! When it gets a little chillier I would throw over my animal print faux fur coat and either a black or neutral scarf.

Who would have thought that teaming a pair of “trackie” pants and a smartish blouse would be the way forward in fashion? Well, the way we are operating at the moment, half at home and half in the office, is exactly where this look took its inspo from, and it actually does work. Again, here I have kept it clean by wearing a white shirt but you can also swop it out for an animal print shirt or a denim shirt or even print knit jersey. Your options are endless with just one bottom!

All these items are from my new winter What Women Want range (not currently available on my website) BUT a sneak peak of what I will have to offer will be showcased at my pop-up next Thursday 17th June.
