Monochrome chic from Evans

Despite the fact that I am one of the greatest advocates of colour in your wardrobe, there is something undeniably chic about monochrome. Classic black and white will always be a wardrobe staple, something that is perfect for you work outfits, glamorous for important occasions like a day at the races, a family wedding or a black tie event.

Timeless and classic, black and white outfits stay in the wardrobe forever, the colour combo never goes out of style and will always be a fashion failsafe. This season, Evans have made monochrome a key part of its Spring/Summer collections, and have shown its versatility. There are cute, fun prints with lovehearts and polka dots, striped tunics a la Alexa Chung, and abstract prints from Live Unlimited. Unlimited could be a perfect word to describe the endless possibilities of monochrome too.

(Good) Friday Shopping Focus – Evans Live Unlimited

In February I attended the first Plus Size Fashion Weekend on behalf of F&F Clothing. One of the best things about the day was getting the opportunity to see some new ranges up close, and one of those ranges was the fabulous ‘Live Unlimited‘. With fellow blogger Caroline from Curvy Wordy, I had lots of fun examining the range and picking out my favourite pieces.

The Live Unlimited range is now available in store and online for Evans, and I think it is absolutely great. This is such a grown up range, feminine without being girly. This is definitely a collection for those who still like to make monochrome a focal point of their wardrobe – black and white is very prominent in the designs, and where colour and print is utilised, it is still in the darker shades of blue and grey, with snake prints and 60s geometric prints all featuring heavily in the collection.

Friday Focus – M&Co’s monochrome magic

Classic black and white never really goes out of style, does it. Think of Julia Roberts collecting her Oscar in Vintage Valentino, or Audrey Hepburn wearing Givenchy in Sabrina and you see the images of women looking classic and elegant in that most complimentary of colour combinations.

Just this week, Julianne Moore wowed at the Golden Globes in her Tom Ford monochrome gown, whilst Frieda Pinto showed that black and white can also be fun and flirty at the LA Bafta’s tea party. Black and white are the combination you can turn to when you want to make sure you have everything just right, it will never fail you.

High Street retailer M&Co have embraced monochrome this season, in a series of smart dresses and separates that are just perfect for rest and play. From spots to stripes, 60s graphic styling to Chanel style quilting, black and white shows its versatility and sheer longevity in these pieces. So, ignore the snow, and spoil yourself this Friday with a collection that evokes Royal Ascot, My Fair Lady and the best of the swinging 60s. You know it makes sense!
