Spring Trend: Monochrome


The weather in New York has been crazy. We've gone from spring like weather back to winter in what seems like matter of hours...which I guess theoretically it had been. All I know is that I want to truly transition my wardrobe from winter to spring. I'm over wearing my heavy coats and layering of scarves and hats. The only way I feel better about this whole situation is by starting to mix in some spring trends when I can. The monochrome look is one of the easiest looks to mix in. It's a timeless look that always looks chic. Plus it's a look that you can dig around in your closet to find the pieces you need to pull this trend off.

Since the weather has been wacky I decided to layer up two of my favorite jackets, my Michael Kors leather jacket under my light weight houndstooth Roxy jacket. Adding a printed black and white piece to your look can give it a more vibrant feeling instead of just your basic black and white look.

    Lol fashion bloggers must be going through a hard time with this weather. They're not able to show off their spring wardrobe or instead have to freeze their butts off :p
