You can't ever go wrong with monochrome! I think black and white is the perfect combination no matter what time of the year it is. 

This outfit can be dressed down or dressed up just by changing the shoes, bag and top. Ripped jeans are on trend this season, they look great as they can be styled in sooo many ways, from baggy tees, converse, boots or dressed up with heels, clutch bag and a basic top with gold jewerelly. 



With both pairs of jeans you can style with each top. The white jeans with the black lace crop top and the first pair of black heels would look great together, to style it casually you could wear black converse instead of the heels.
With the black jeans the white top to the right would be great for a casual look to throw on with some black or white converse, or some chunky black boots and a oversized jacket and oversized bag. Or to dress it up abit style with some white strappy heels, for example the white ones above with a little black clutch bag. 
The white crop top would look really good with the black jeans and with any pair of the heels, you could easily dress the outfit down too with some boots and add a long dainty gold chain. This too would also look great with a white bodycon skirt with the bottom right heels.

When wearing a monochrome outfit it's really fun to play with your makeup, especially your lips or a bold smokey eye. You could focus on heavy winged eyeliner with bold burgundy or bright red lips, maybe a dark plum shade, or bronzed and highlighted skin with a light brown smokey eye and burgundy lips. If you want to keep the lips quite natural, wear a nude or light pink lipstick with minimal eye makeup or go for a heavy black smokey eye with a nude lip! As it's autumn/winter now is the time to push yourself and try out those dark lip colours!
