    I love minimalist fashion – these two shades are really gorgeous on you. The majority of the clothes in my wardrobe are black, but I do love adding a pop of colour. I wish I could have a capsule wardrobe, but I struggle to let things go 😀

      Thank you Kat! I am curious to see how long I go with no colour! I am thinking about red dresses and baby pinks and turquoise. But I know that I will always go to monochrome first.
      It’s hard letting pieces go right! I did it all in baby steps and now I can’t remember exactly what I gave away.

      Thank you girl! I realised that even when I had colour, I naturally choose black and white. And it kind of made sense to follow suit for a while. I probably will wear pieces of colour again, but I’m liking this style right now. x

    You suit black very well! It’s funny how certain colours look better on certain people. Ha, colour theory! The thing I learnt with monochrome fashion is that the attention then becomes within the actual design of the product whether it’s the silhouette, fabric/texture or cutting. It is unlike print or colour which is already quite the statement and it is in this way that black is such a classy colour because it doesn’t show off!

      That’s exactly how it is! I’ve never paid so much attention to fabric and texture before. I really do love black and I could easily wear it head-to-toe on a daily basis. But then I have white for back-ups 🙂

    I love your perspective on fashion, because there’s clearly a lot of thought that you put into defining your own style! I love monochrome outfits, because it is hard to go wrong with them. 🙂 I love block colors a lot, but really enjoy some patterns as well. Oh well, that’s a tough decision to make! Great post, as always. 🙂

      Thank you! I’ve always been super conscious of fashion, because for the longest time I felt that I didn’t have any style and it really affected my confidence. I would just hide in baggy clothes. So now, I really want to figure out my look and create something. 🙂

    I usually wear a lot of black. almost all my shoes are black, with a few nude ones. I tend to like dark colors. Dark greens, dark gray, and maroon. Recently I’ve been even adding pink into my wardrobe, it’s been such a refreshing change. The one color I do tend to stay away from is white! I don’t know why, but the color white makes me uncomfortable. Great post Laura xxx

      I would be lost without my white shirts! It would be like losing half my wardrobe. I’ve never owned white trousers so that’s a style hurdle to figure out!
      Pink is a gorgeous colour to wear though – there’s a specific shade I love but I can’t think how to describe it. xxx

    I am very much solid colors only and gravitate towards everything in black and white – yet very consciously shop for variety of colors. Your article is so interesting to read as always 🙂

    • LauraJ says

      Thank you! I’ve never been a pattern person – other than when I was a child and wanted butterflies or flowers on literally EVERYTHING! I naturally gravitate towards black and white as well. 🙂

    • LauraJ says

      Thank you! The only downside is that I have a couple of coloured tops I still love and they kind of just sit in my closet. They are like the furniture in Beauty and the Beast – desperate to be a alive again! xx

I would love to read your thoughts!
