Simple monochrome checks | feat. Olia necklace from Psyche

I don't really like catalogues coming through the post as they always entice me into buying new things, so normally I'll just bin them without having a look. For some unknown reason I decided not to throw out the latest Simply Be copy and had a little browse, that's where I came across these beautiful black and white tartan trousers. I fell in love and simply had to have them. After reading the reviews I decided to size up to a 22 just to make sure they were comfortable and I could move, the don't have a lot of stretch but just enough to make them manageable to wear. I am glad I did size up though. I can definitely see me wearing them a lot over the next season too, I'm really digging monochrome! 

I decided to team them with a new t-shirt I picked up from New Look Inspire's collection the other week; it's black chiffon to the front and grey jersey to the back. This makes it tighter at the back for a more fitted look, but the chiffon to the front is very flowing and just skims my tummy nicely. 

A nice monochrome look needs a bit of colour, so for the pop I decided to wear my favourite blazer, the beautiful neon pink one I picked up from River Island in spring. Oh and my trusty black Hamble Oak brogues from Clarks, it's true, I do live in these now. 

This was a perfect outfit to team with my new necklace; a beautiful black and gold square pendant by Olia, from Psyche. Psyche are department store based in the heart of Middlesbrough offering high-end designers both in store and online too, with the option of collection in store or delivery. They cater for men, women and children and offer plenty of designer's apparel.

  1. They're absolutely gorgeous! I tend to play monochrome safe and make the whole outfit only black and white, but I'm in love with the pop of colour that you've added.. I'm thinking about giving it a go myself now!
