New Look Inspire | Monochrome

One of my favourite looks for this spring is monochrome. I have plenty of gorgeous black and white additions to my wardrobe, and will definitely continue adding these staple pieces to my wardrobe! When the lovely folks over at New Look Inspire asked if I wanted to try one of their spring pieces, I jumped at the chance. I've had my eye on this gorgeous monochrome double pocket tunic dress for quite some time now. A big thank you to the folks over at New Look for sending me this dress to review, and show how I will be wearing monochrome this season. 

I presumed that with this dress being a 'tunic' it would be much shorter than it is, but I was absolutely delighted than I can wear it as a dress! I decided to take inspiration from London Fashion Week and go for a 60's look, complete with nude lip and feline bold, black eye liner. My black faux leather jacket was bought last year in autumn, but I think this is a great way to transition this piece back into my wardrobe for the spring season. It's such a gorgeous jacket, and the faux fur collar is also detachable so it doesn't look too autumnal/wintery. This was a great opportunity for me to wear my new wig! I've also teamed this outfit with a simple pair of black and white pumps just to continue the theme. 

The houndstooth print is a classic, and will continue to work as a staple in my wardrobe. This dress could be easily dressed up with a bright neon oversized blazer and matching pumps, or with this season's pastel trend too. 

I bought the dress in a size up (size 20) from what I usually wear as I'm a pear shape and have quite large hips, I wanted the dress to hang really well without being too clingy! It doesn't look too big up top either. Because of the stretch in this garment would also work really well as a bodycon dress too.
