Fashion Diary – February 2020

The monochromatic style shows us that wearing one single colour is anything but boring. Try mixing different shades and tints of your preferred colour, whether it’s a neutral one or a bolder choice. Multiple layers with different textures will make your outfit interesting and chic – a great trend for the Scandi minimalist.
With big lapels, built-in flap pockets and slightly enhanced shoulders, the Paris blazer from Weekday is a classic suit jacket for that ultimate power dressing look. Throw it over your monochromatic outfit to add an extra layer of beige – a staple piece you will be thankful to have in your wardrobe.
Weekday, ‘Paris’ blazer, £80
The key to getting the monochromatic style right is to mix different tones of the same colour, and we think this light-blue knitted pullover in lambswool blend from Tiger of Sweden will look great under the darker blue overshirt.
Tiger of Sweden, ‘Aint’ pullover, £119
A belt can also help break up an outfit and make it more interesting. A timeless classic, this one from COS, made from smooth leather in a warm shade, will make a bold addition to your smart workwear looks this season.
COS, classic leather belt, £35
Grandpa is a Scandinavian lifestyle boutique offering a different way of shopping through a carefully curated and always updated collection emphasising the brand’s key values: service, atmosphere and inspiration. We love this rib-knitted beanie in lambswool from the collaboration with classic Swedish manufacturer Sätila.
Grandpa, beanie, approx £38
These beige ankle boots from Acne Studios are crafted to a squared toe from supple leather and then set on a triangular, stacked heel – a pair of statement shoes you’ll be wearing for seasons, because they’ll go with everything.
Acne Studios, square-toe leather boots, £490
We all need a modern and simple bag. Designed with multiple straps, this large, soft-structured nylon bag from COS can be worn in a number of ways, making it a versatile accessory to carry around this year.
COS, versatile soft nylon bag, £55
A neutral such as beige is an excellent choice for a monochromatic outfit. Simple and classic, beige will add a timeless elegance to your outfit. Pair this luxurious loose-fit, round-neck jumper with these smart caramel-coloured trousers, both from House of Dagmar, and you are ready for spring.
House of Dagmar, ‘Talia’ sweater, £222
House of Dagmar, ‘Antionette’ trouser, £249
Stay right on trend this year with classic blue. Rich, dark shades teamed up with lighter hues will create a sophisticated, monochromatic look. This versatile overshirt from Arket delivers a neat, clean appearance with a warming quality. Made from a blend of wool and recycled polyester, it is twill-woven for a smooth, slightly lustrous texture. Its slightly heavier top-stitches grant a workwear feel.
Arket, wool blend overshirt, £99
