Minimalist Monochrome, Worn Backwards

Black and white sweater and denim

I’ve said “worn backwards”, but I now think this sweater is actually designed to be worn both ways. I thought at the time I was being really clever and creative to wear it round the other way (compared to the picture online of it, see below) – but the front and back panels are exactly the same.

So yes, very minimalist for me, almost to an extreme! Just a simple thrown-on sweater, skinnies and wow heels was my outfit the other weekend.

    Oooo I like that you can wear it both ways! At first glance, I thought it was just striped down the arm and side, but I love that it's half and half. And those heels are still so cute! <3

    Love the combination of the "wow" shoes with sleekness of the shirt.

    Also, thank you so much for all of your photography tips. My husband and I are rather clueless about photography so your information has really made a difference! Please keep them coming!

    Golly, I saw that jumper and thought about it for a long time and decided against it. WRONG. ITS FABULOUS. Love the shoes too!

    Amazing outfit Catherine! The top is fantastic, and of course your legs are made for skinny jeans! The shoes are killing me with envy!

    Very elegant! It doesn't hurt that you'd look great in a paper bag, either 😉

    What a clever sweater! It's very 60's Mod. The bright multi-colored shoes are really a fun an unexpected touch.

    Wow heels, indeed – they make any simple outfit remarkable. Love this look xoxoxoxo

    Catherine, this is the perfect casual outfit and you look beautiful! Actually today I spent a couple of hours looking for a pair of skinny jeans…yours look great! The jumper is indeed very original and the bicolor/byfront wearing makes it so versatile. I wish you a great w-e! Caterina
