Modern Monochrome/Via Uno Pumps

Faux leather skirt: asos; Blouse: Koton; Belt and Bag: Asos; Pumps: Via Uno similar; Ring: Present

Do you love monochromatic dressing? They are a huge trend this season and can be easily created with the basic items you have in your closet. Just look for  pieces that are in the same colour family. 

One way to keep your style chic and simple is to mix and match different textures and pattern . It can be as I did on this look  in black and white and throw in some gold accessories (for an extra portion of glamour) or using a different monochrome palette. It doesn't have to be bold. I was playing with different textures as leather, silk and some ruffles and bows for some touch of girlyness.
Usually I like to bring some splash of colour in the monochrome game  to lift it but not today. I wanted to keep it crisp clean and timeless with just black and white.

I have those super cute bow pumps by Via Uno in beige and black. I love their clean and classic feminine designs . Not only are they super comfortable but so affordable too. Do you wear Via Uno?

PS: If you click on asos to see the white leather skirt , you will see a Model who is 1.80 m and rock this skirt like a pro. When I tried this skirt on  it was probably 10 cm under my knees and became a midi skirt, which looks horrible on my figure with 1.66m. SOOOO I pulled the skirt up to nearly my breast so that its hitting my knees, I guess that works . I felt like the sister of Steve Urkel, just needed my suspenders :-D

Linking up with Alison!

  13. That is hilarious about the skirt being pulled up to just under your breasts. You have what I like to call, "old man Clint Eastwood pants" He also pulls them up to just below his nipples.

    You still make it look sexy : ) Plus now although you have no waist you have very long legs. Like I used to draw when I was a kid.
