Casual Dressing: Weekend Monochrome Look

Stella Asteria Fashion & Lifestyle Blogger wearing a monochrome casual look in Paris

As much as I love dressing up, a comfortable yet stylish casual monochrome look makes me just as happy, especially in the weekends! And when it comes to casual dressing during winter, there are three things in my mind: a nice sweater, comfy flats ad a hands-free crossbody bag.

Last weekend I went monochrome and wore this look to go for a walk at the Republique area and the Canal Saint Martin. I really wanted to wear these super comfortable Erro leather pants with stud details, that my lovely friend from The Queenstore gifted to me a few years ago, so I started from there. Since I had already decided on a monochromatic look for that day, the rest was very easy. I chose a grey turtleneck sweater and white coat, multiple thin layers underneath the sweater of course (it’s a bit cold in Paris), white sneakers and my Chanel boy bag which can be also held as a crossbody. Finished with some purple lipstick to add a bit of color pop and voila! How do you like a monochrome look like this? I think there is always something special about a monochrome look and black & white, or ‘the absence of color’ like Coco Chanel said. What do you think?

As for me, you may have probably noticed that I have been missing some of my posts lately, and I am afraid it will be the same for the next couple of weeks, right before and during Paris Fashion Week. This will be my first Fashion Week so there are so many things to do. Plus, one of my besties and Anestis’ sister, Eleanna, visited us in Paris and I wanted to spend as much time with her as possible. But I am really making up to you with my stories and posts on Instagram and Snapchat, so make sure to follow me to see our daily shenanigans and scenes from the fashion shows and events I am going to attend. I really love it when we connect there too!

What about you? What are your plans this weekend? Is anyone from you coming to Paris Fashion Week? I would love to find out in the comments below!

Happy Friday and have an amazing start to the weekend!

    Paris Fashion Week. Oooh, how exciting. My Mother would attend all of them. London, Paris, Milan etc. And return with wonderful stories to tell. I would be soo envious.
    Wrap up well, my Dear. I don’t have to tell you about soft layers. Spring is just round the corner. And the woods are full of pretty little snowdrops.
    Today I an going to lunch in Arundel Castle. A private function, no less.
    Hugs, Jo x

      Hello my dear Jo! I hope you had a great time having lunch in Arundel Castle, I saw photos and it looks like it came out of a fairytale! I have already planned some outfits for fashion week and most of them are pretty ‘light’ so I hope for good weather! 😉 Wishing you a great week!

        Oh, Stella. I had a wonderful time at the Caatle. And you are correct. It does look like it comes out of a fairytale. Some of the rooms are soo pretty.
        I’m longing to see which outfits you have picked for Fashion Week. But I suppose I will have to be patient. However, I do hope you have something in is a happy springtime colour, and soo you.
        Wishing you a lovely week. Jo x

    You did monochrome dressing so perfectly! I love the the edgy details on your leather pants, really makes them stand out against this neutral palette! I’ve been loving monochrome dressing with sneakers too! I need to find myself a pair of white sneakers like yours! I can see them being worn with a variety of outfits!

      Oh yes, they are too stylish for their comfiness and they can add a lovely pop of white to a dark outfit and make it more interesting! Hope you find the perfect one soon! Love your latest casual monochrome look by the way! Happy Monday! xo

    I adore this easy chic outfit on you. You KNOW I always love you in white, and this winter white colour is perfect. It is so nice with your dark hair. As usual, every detail is perfect, the trousers, the trainers, the bag, the lipstick, everything!!! Enjoy fashion week; I look forward to seeing what you get up to! xxx

  13. 27/02/2017 / 19:22

    Oh babe! You are always so damn chic! Totally nailed that casual weekend style! Can’t wait to see all your pics and looks from PFW… Hope you have the best time!

      Thank you my dear Emily! Have an amazing time in India! xoxo

    You missing a few posts as a result of being at PFW is totally understandable. I mean, that’s fashion week and you’re a fashion blogger! LOL! I think that will be such a fun time for you and I can’t wait to see all that you write about when you get back! That aside, I love this outfit, Stella! I’m big on the comfy look the majority of the time so flats and a crossbody is totally up my alley. Plus being comfy allows you to easily go on random adventures and with you still exploring Paris, I’m sure that cute outfit will make it easy for you to go deep into your new city!


    • Stella Asteria
      27/02/2017 / 22:21

      Hahaha thank you for your understanding my darling! You are so right, I think so too that being comfy and warm is ideal to explore a city like Paris, and I really can’t have enough of it! Happy Monday and thanks for stopping by! xoxo

  15. 27/02/2017 / 21:05

    Oh yes! Love this outfit babe, monochrome is so fierce and always at its best with at least one pop of color. So gorgeous to go for a dark lip. Dark purple with that coat is a great match. Lovely with the edge of the pants and the bag too – great styling as usual!

    Have a lovely week Stella and of course a fashionable one at PFW! Xx

    I’m super excited for you- your first fashion week, cant wait to see what you wear! These days I’m just as interested to see what you guys wear as well as the models. I can imagine how busy it must be for you. Try not to get overwhelmed, the secret is to prepare for it like you are going to war. Get your outfits ready, plan your transport, get your bag ready and it it make sure you have your business cards etc.
    Ok I’m talking too much now, but I’m excited for you, I remember my first time, tsigh… ( :

    Lovely casual outfit! I love how you mixed different textures in these neutral shades! 🙂 The coat is so stunning! (I really like classy coat + sneakers combos) And I love your sunnies by the way 🙂 Enjoy Fashion Week! 🙂
    Have an amazing week!
