FPTL MODERN MONOCHROME Here are five new outfits with which I hope giving you some idea on how to style black-and-white pieces in a quite modern and trendy way. While the monochrome combination is the most classic out there, I tried to make less conventional and deja-vu outfits by adding some hipster items, mixing different styles and playing with bold colors and shapes.
The first ensemble is a typical sporty-chic look that went viral on social media a while ago and ain’t going anywhere any time soon. To pull off this kind of look you’ll need a backpack, Stan Smiths, a logo sweatshirt and denim sleeveless vest. Lucky for you, these items will be popular 10-20 years from now, so invest in them. This Mansur Gavriel backpack is a simple yet sophisticated so me using it so often in my outfits is simply a matter of common sense.

FPTL MODERN MONOCHROME 2This style has grown in popularity so fast that I couldn’t keep track of when and in which country this trend started. I think it comes from Scandinavian countries, but don’t take my word for it. Anyways, it consists of super high platform shoes. They seem to love this type of footwear there especially black and white ones. The great thing about this sporty-sexy look is that it reveals a lot of skin (for the bottom part) while the top is shouting “I’m from the hood” and covers everything without even revealing the body shape. It is a clever way of feeling sexy yet appropriate.

FPTL MODERN MONOCHROME 3Of all outfits I have shared with you today, this one is my favorite. The Proenza Schouler leather jacket is the greatest biker white jacket I have ever seen. The fact it is white with black zippers makes it a unique and unseen piece of clothing. Pairing it with black tapered pants with tiny white stripes on the side can never go wrong. Then comes this super cute Milly crop top in tangerine with black straps. It doesn’t get better than that!! And when I decided to add a pair of color-block sandals also from Proenza Schouler instead of a classic black pair of heels, I simply fell in love with the result. But the best of the best is this super cute and modern clutch from Balenciaga. The yellow border just complements the tangerine and team so well with the monochrome combo. Love, love, love.

FPTL MODERN MONOCHROME 4And what about this extraterrestrial look? Every and each piece makes a statement, that’s for sure. First, the Peter Pilotto shirt with its crazy print would make every outfit insane! And these mules from Giuseppe Zanotti are to die for! Though, I must admit I’m not very hooked on the mule trend actually but this pair is just mind-blowing. The little metallic detail of the mules matches the mini cross-body bag from Alexander McQueen and they both look like they have been pulled out of the sea. Don’t their blue/green shades remind you of the ocean?

FPTL MODERN MONOCHROME 5Last but not least, this all-black everyday look is to wear every time you can. There’s no need to specify why though!

Hope you like my post guys! See you next post,
