Easy Monochrome - The Simplest of Wedding Guest Outfits


Style Theory: Monochrome works, it always looks chic, understated just add neutral accessories to lift the look and make it mid-summer worthy.

These culottes are so easy to wear, they are comfortable, elegant and take you from day to night in one easy step. They need to be worn with heels, the heel elongates your legs (culottes and trainers are a tricky look to pull off), I have opted for these Mango block heels that are super comfy (although to be honest the quality is not great!) To lighten up the look for summer neutral accessories are essential, they keep it all from looking too heavy. The great thing is both the top and culottes can be mixed up and worn with other wardrobe basics. The black off the shoulder top looks fab with boyfriend jeans and heeled sandals, the white culottes would look great dressed down with a breton or denim shirt and tan heels. A simple and easy look...
