1. White panelled playsuit - MissGuided, 2. Stripe leather dress - River Island, 3. White cut-out bag - Vero Moda, 4. Cut-out platform wedges - Jeffrey Campbell, 5. Beaded tassel necklace - Dorothy Perkins, 6. Checked umbrella - Topshop, 7. Checked blazer - Topshop.

As some of you may have noticed I'm a big fan of monochrome! I either dress in black or white and like to then accessorise with pops of colour. That said, this trend of wide stripe and large checks was really appealing to me. However, as much as I love the designer buys in the top picture (particularly the Acne jacket!) I can't afford them, so I included how I would dress for the trend but on a high street budget. I particularly LOVE the checked blazer from Topshop!

Hope you like the post!
