Highstreet Monochrome Lookbook 2014 | LittleEllieMae

This summer I've been into the monochrome trend; I love how the block colours stand out and create a really 'put- together' look.  

Today I'm going to show you a handful of outfits that I've put together, inspired by the monochrome trend. All of these outfits are from the highstreet, so they're affordable too!

Playsuit: Primark- £14
Shoes: H! by Henry Holland- £30
Anklet- Souvenir from Spain

This is the newest edition to my wardrobe- I think that this outfit is great for going out somewhere a bit dressier than usual. You can also pair it with tights and ankle boots to take this look into the autumn months!

Skirt: New Look- £9.99
Top: H&M- £9.99
Shoes: H! by Henry Holland- £30
Flower headband- Handmade by me! (contact for more info)

This outfit is perfect for summer months! Black and white doesn't equal boring..! Go for a bold print, like this elephant print skirt from New Look to add some fun to a monochrome look. 

Top: Topshop- £10
Shorts: Matalan- £16
Shoes: New Look- £20

This look is really easy to wear everyday during the summer. I love the edgy, bold print on the top in contrast to the frilly, broderie anglaise shorts!

Top: H&M- £3.99
Skirt: H! by Henry Holland: £25 (ish)
Bag: Primark- £6
Shoes: New Look- £20

I love the mixture of textures and patterns in this look, with the velvety detail on the skirt and bold stripes of the top. Plus, it doesn't clash at all because the colours suit perfectly together!

Top: T-Shirt Policy London (ASOS Marketplace)- £35
Leggings: River Island- £20 (ish!... they were from last winter)
Boots: Topshop- £35
Hat: H&M- £12.99

This is my go-to outfit for the transition to Autumn! Make a statement with this monochrome look and add a daring red lipstick! My favourite lipstick to wear with this look is Rimmel London Kate Moss in 107.

Jeans: M&S- £23
Top: New Look- £7
Wedged Boots: River Island- £25
Phonecase: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Kimono: New Look- £20

You don't have to go all out with the monochrome trend; Why not stick to your black jeans and add a classic white top. This is such an easy look and you can wear it on a daily basis! 

I hope that you enjoyed these looks! If you try out the monochrome trend, please let me know as I'd love to see your looks!
