So we are officially in Spring, although the weather is not playing along yet, we can look forward to, hopefully, some great summer weather. But while we are not there yet, and we are still working on our bikini bodies. HELLO!! Monochrome, one of the best styling tricks to hide those pesky areas that you are conscious of, while at the same time adding inches and making you appear leaner.
Monochrome is often associated with black or white but there are more colors that you can wear to create that elegant monochrome look. Here are my favorite 6 colors, that if chosen in the shade that compliments your skin tone, will carry you through spring and summer for all those cool monochrome looks.
Cool and tranquil the perfect color for your casual street style, as we all have a denim jacket, cutoff shorts, jeans, chambray shirts, and button-down skirts in our closets.

Green is great if you want to refresh your look. And as we are seeing a lot of the khaki safari trend this season. Pulling of the green monochrome look will be a breeze. Choose hues of green like khaki, hunter green, olive green, and forest green for a fresh chic look.
White, the classic summer color. Although most women find it challenging to wear because the all-white shade, as it is not very flaw flattering. The trick is to pick the right fabric and to make sure that it fits your silhouette and that the design flatters your shape. So if you do have a muffin top, pair a structured vest with a dress, as the lapels of outerwear slims down your shape and defines your waist.
Grey, not always a summer color, but definitely a good choice for a slimming monochromatic look. Just be sure that the color does not drown you out so add splashes of complementing color like blueberry blue, red or fuchsia.
Nude, depending on your skin tone this is a very flattering monochrome look. But like grey it can drown you, so make sure that you pick a shade that is in contrast with your skin tone.
Trousers are great and we love dresses but skirts have a certain ladylike chic to them and you can never go wrong with a well styled skirt ensemble. Here at three looks to inspire you to fall in love with skirts.
Unexpected Hues and Prints
Bury the black and gray and go for a statement making skirt for the office a perfect option for a dull Monday.
Break up a printed midi skirt with neutral separates and accent your outfit with complementing accessories.
Go short, for a lunch date, a shorter hemline will make your legs look longer.
Considering the length of your skirt, the right shoe can make or break your outfit. So go for heels with interesting details.
A striped midi, for those casual weekends, vertical lines are always flattering as they give off the illusion of a longer line.
Try and keep your ensemble as simple as possible using your accessories to highlight the shade of your skirt.
It is the month of February and I can feel that love is in the air; I would not be surprised if I saw Cupid himself shooting arrows at strangers.
Heels makes you feel sexy and confident and the higher the better!! but they are not always good for the health of our feet and leave our feet feeling and looking like it has been in a war zone. Here are some tips on how to wear your killer heels without causing too much pain to your feet.
Blisters are caused by friction, as your foot rubs against your heel. So reduce friction by wearing a thick strap over the foot as this hold the foot in place and prevents it from slipping around and causing friction points.

Keep your pedicure short
Wearing heels and walking around in them all day, can make your feet sweat, causing your feet to slide forward, so always make sure that your pedicures are short so it does not cause extra tension on the toes.

Running around and on your feet all day, make sure that your shoes are comfortable. Chunky block heels, or cute kitten heels, for all day running around, are a better than those high stilettos’. Keep those supper high heels for date night or girly nights out.
Also make sure that your shoes are not too tight as your feet will not have any room to breathe.

Relieve the pressure
When you are on your feet all day, try to relieve the pressure by slipping of your shoes. You can do this while sitting at your desk, just to give your feet a little breather.

Sprinkle bottom of shoes with baby powder
The baby powder will soak up any moisture created from the walking in your heel all day. The moisture from your feet sweating can cause friction which will cause blisters. So the baby powder will keep your feet from slipping and thus minimizes blisters.
