Hot Spring Trends - Magnificent Monochrome

Tuesday, 19 February 2013

Spring is officially here, and with a new season, comes fresh fashion trends - we're talking precision whites and light lacey fabrics, pretty florals, split-skirts, and of course - monochrome!

I've been seeing bold patterns of black-and-white everywhere, and I love the variety of striking yet simple designs flooding our high streets.

Checks have been a popular print featured on runways, and it's easy to see how trends are being merged together to create something amazing - as well as colourful squares creating a bouncy feel to the Spring season, monochrome has also been used to give these outfits that extra edge.

As well as checked designs making an appearance for spring 2013, it's obvious that stripes will be making an equally striking return. Vertical, horizontal, zig-zag, colourful, monochrome - you can pick to suit your fancy!

Upon my assumingly many hours spent browsing clothes online, I recently found the perfect monochrome midi dress for this season - it's a pretty simple design of horizontal black stripes over cream fabric and a high-neck detail, but I love it. I'm not someone to go for very 'out-there' items with unusual patterns that grab everybody's attention (not sure I could pull it off!) so this dress is perfect for me, and I think it will be a staple piece in my wardrobe for a long time. :-)

I ordered this dress from AX Paris for £17.35 (including p&p) and also got a 20% off discount for my first purchase! (Dress is originally £18.00)

I think the dress - and the trend of monochrome itself - is absolutely gorgeous, and I cannot wait to wear it. I'm sure pictures will soon follow!

What's your favourite trend this season?
