Look of the Day – Going Monochrome!

Monochrome Look

From left to right:

Some say monochrome is one of the hottest trends for 2008, but I say: monochrome is hot EVERY season and it will never ever go out of style. Sure, it might not be the most daring trend, but it’s a classic for a reason.

To all the hardcore fashionistas out there, add white ruffle socks and a black satin top hat to give the look the icing on the cake. But remember: You gotta be brave and confident to rock these accessoires.

Hayden Panettiere - White Top and Black Pencil Skirt Favorite Look

If you haven’t already noticed, Heroes hottie Hayden Panettiere has been sporting a rather unhealthy obsession with a certain look lately – the tucked in white blouse combined with a black pencil skirt and black pumps (mostly peep-toes).

As far as our research goes, Hayden’s been opting at least 6x for this monochrome sophisticated look in the last 4 months.

Apart from seeing this look too many times on Hayden now, I really like the combination (if chosen carefully). But still, I can’t help thinking that this is not a style that suits Hayden very much. First, it makes Hayden age about 10 to 15 years. Considered that the actress is only 18, it’s kind of weird to see her going for the “First Lady“-look. Second, Hayden’s a petite girl and that really nice pencil skirt is cutting off her short legs at a rather unflattering, not so nice length. In fact, the skirt makes Hayden look smaller and boxier than she actually is. But see for yourself.

This event seems to be the birth of Hayden’s current obsession with pencil skirts. She paired her satin skirt with a tucked in white backless halter top, a large red clutch and a pair of black velvet Louboutins.

Fast forward one month later. Same skirt, same belt, same shoes, different white top, but still white, still tucked in.

Again one month later. A new pencil skirt, but still black. Yes, technically spoken, the sleeveless turtleneck top is not exactly white and it’s also not tucked in, but it’s still the same boring style.

In this case, Hayden should’ve rather worn the shirt tucked in because it falls way too long on her small frame making Hayden look smaller.

Next day, but basically the same outfit. Same black pencil skirt, same black shoes and –surprise– a white tucked in blouse (again sleeveless, but this time ruffled)

Covet this look? Here are some “Look for Less“-alternatives:

Hayden Panettiere - New Year, New Old Navy Celebration January 2008

New Year, same old look on Hayden. Black pencil skirt? Check. Black peep-toe heels? Check. White tucked in top? Check. (Okay, okay, the top’s ivory, but you get the idea).

(Btw, the ivory silk chiffon tie blouse is from Nu Collective and can be purchased for $185 at and )

Summary

Hayden, darling, please give us some rest from your favorite look. We all know you like pencil skirts by now, so how about getting some variety in your closet? Unlike us mortals, I’m sure you get tons of great new stuff delivered to your doorstep every day, so why not take advantage of it?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against recycling clothes, but Hayden’s carried things too far here with her faible for the monochrome look. It’s not about being economic anymore, it’s about being plain boring and uncreative.

Of course, there still might be a reasonable explanation why Hayden’s been channeling her inner secretary for the last few months. Maybe she landed a role as an office lady and that’s how she prepares for the role? You know, method acting at its best.

So what do you think about Hayden and her pencil skirt?

Should Hayden Panettiere get herself some new clothes?

    From belts to bags to footwear – wearing patent leather accessories is one of the key trends this season. And I just happened to stumble upon these wonderful Jimmy Choo patent leather ankle boots with multiple golden buckles.

    Since ankle boots aren’t easy to pull off, these Jimmy Choos are perfect for everybody who wants to be fashion forward, but doesn’t have gazelle legs. The lower style that cuts right under the anklebone will guarantee you a great line. Pair the boots with skinny jeans, dark, opaque tights and simple above-the-knee dresses and you’ll always look all fab, dear.

    Grab this pair of shoe perfection at for $820 or €640
