Monochrome Chic

Bag a last minute bargain in the pre-Christmas sales with this beautiful drop waist dress from Miss Selfridge. I've chosen to incorporate it into a monochrome theme here with all the stops pulled out - statement sleeves, pearls, patent, lace and satin. Layer over a pretty blouse - I can't decide between the kimono sleeved and the lace detailed ones. Add this Turkish style cream e┼čarp, elegant quilted bag and dainty pumps, and you have a luxuriously chic, yet practical outfit that doesn't break the bank:

Black drop waist collar dress £20, Miss Selfridge; kimono sleeve blouse £55; ivory poetic blouse £39, both Principles; cream esarp £10, LOSVE; black button trousers £25; pearl cocktail ring £10, cream patent cross body £12; all Dorothy Perkins; black patent bow pump £20, Miss Selfridge.

Hint: The dress may be out of stock online, but check availability in stores. Or check out other black drop waist dresses like the Renee embellished dress from Oasis.
