Sometimes one does need a break from all the colour that this summer season is offering; that’s when I turn to black and white, as it is, and always will be such a classic.

'What I am Wearing' Summer 2019 Edition - Marvellous in Monochrome from Off The Rails Fashionista

I just love this gorgeous printed mesh dress from Iconic. The material keeps you cool and the flare sleeves add a touch of elegance to this feminine piece. I’ve teamed the dress with a classic pair of block heels from Julz Shoes, which gives some glamour to the look. This look can so easily be worn to the office, a Christmas lunch or cocktail party; it’s just so versatile!

The fabric is just fabulous, as it won’t crease when you pack it into your suitcase, making it the perfect dress to take with you for the holidays. I’ve paired a bold pair of black earrings from Beryl Dingemans with the outfit and a stylish pair of sunglasses from Select Sunglasses ready for those summer days!

For a more casual take on mono this easy to wear, soft viscose top and bottoms from Habits can be dressed up or down and it’s such a classic look. I’ve teamed it with a pair of trendy animal print sliders from Julz Shoes for a smart casual look.

To accessorise I’ve chosen a gorgeous long gold necklace from Poetry and bold black earrings from Beryl Dingemans. For a more casual look, keep the accessories and replace the sliders with white sneakers and add a denim jacket.
