Cool Monochrome

COOL

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.

Denim Blue

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.

Beautiful quality lingerie always makes for a nice gift, whether you buy it for yourself or you get the man in your life to buy it for you.

Remember when buying lingerie; to pay attention to the detail and make sure that what you are buying are comfortable because you want to look sexy but you also want to be comfortable when wearing it.

The classic such as black, pink, red and whites are always a popular option. If you want to steer away from the classics go for navy which suits most skin types. If your man is buying it for you, do some research with him online so that he knows what to buy when heading into the shops.

Bohemian Summer

primarkuk 811321733356943

The bohemian look originated in the 1960's Hippie culture and is a popular today as it was then.

Drawing inspiration from all over the world adding texture and richness, it has something for every fashionista. With neutral colours as its base making is easy to add colours to key pieces. Layering is key so start with your basics and layer it with pieces like cardigans, jewellery or shawls.

But remember just because the elements of boho style is so relaxed and layered, it does not mean that you have to look like a sloppy hippie. It is always best to keep it simple and the layering to a minimum if you are unsure. Try to keep it feminine and chic by mixing oversized with fitted pieces to balance out your look

Layer on the accessories sunglasses, necklaces, belts and jewellery, a lavish amount of accessories are key to this look. Never combine more than four shades of colours, if your look is already eye catching tone it down with grey's, beige or brown colours. Be sure to add touches of your own style personality and have fun.

Bohemian summer is all about lazy and chilled out days going from music festival to the beach.

It's girly yet stylish!!!

Here are some of my favourite boho looks for summer.

Flower Power

The Boho look is all about being natural and earthy, so floral prints are always a winner, be it that you are wearing a flower crown or a flirty floral print top or the latest trends in floral print shorts or playsuits. Make sure to incorporate florals into your boho look and show your love for the earth.

Gypsy Nights

What is more bohemian then Gypsies, with their flowing sleeved tops, colourful scarfs, skimming skirts, lace, large dangling earrings and beaded jewellery. Show off your carefree side with flamboyant and vibrant colours. Let your hair flow naturally or tie a scarf loosely around it.

Gypsy

Crop Tops

Although not a traditional boho look. Showing just a little bit of skin making your look sexy but still keeping the signature laidback feeling. Go for a loose fitting or a super cute crochet crop top and pair it with a maxi skirt or a palazzo pants.

Tie-dye

Tie-dye adds splashes of colour to your boho look, great with short shorts or over your bikini

Crochet tops and summer knits

These lightweight knits are for layering and creates a casual and uninhibited vibe.

Accessories and footwear

Head wraps, turbans colourful scarves, vintage style sunglasses and Indian style bangles and African style neckpieces as well as gypsy earrings are ideal pieces to finish of any bohemian look. Accessories can also be a great way to add splashes of colour to your look and to tie all the pieces together. It can be as simple as a flower crown paired with a fringed crochet top with a pair of shorts or a flowy maxi skirt.

Footwear

This is defiantly not a look for stiletto style heels so keep it flat with ballet pumps, or Ethnic inspired sandals like Greek, Roman or African styles. Cowboy boots in matching shades to your look, are perfect.

Boho is not about throwing everything in your closet together that is fringed or tie-dyed, but is about mixing pieces together, so that it reflects your personality. Remember is all about a chilled "flower power" vibe and being you.
