Although, I always associate and like brights, pastel colours with Spring/Summer fashion, I recently purchased two monochrome lace dresses. There’s something rather elegant/chic about the colour combination if done right – I have no intention of looking like a zebra 🙂
This lace collar shift dress from Miss Selfridge (£39) caught my eye on a recent perusal of their store on Oxford Street. I pair mine with a thermal black jumper from M&S, opaque tights (try John Lewis opaque cotton tights for £8, great quality and no holes after months of constant washing and wearing).
Dorothy Perkin’s take on the monochrome trend is very ladylike – their Bonded Lace Prom Dress (£38) length hits just above the knees, the prom like skirt and pretty bonded lace makes this a firm favourite.
