Another week, another trend-off! After struggling to decide between ankle and knee-high boots, we’re faced with a new sty-lemma, this time involving metallics and monochrome.

Sharing a penchant for both M’s, we love the graphic seriousness of a monochrome ensemble: the ensuing element of Karl Lagerfeld-esque mystery combined beautifully with Wang’s sharp street grit is too much to resist. But specks of shimmering thread weaved into our metallic wares also tug at our heart (and purse) strings.

We can’t ignore slip-into-me-now metallic boots, and are we really expected to walk away without snapping up that outfit-completing metallic jacket? It’s a party wear staple and, in darker hues, adds the perfect amount of pep to daywear.

So that you can help alleviate the symptoms of a stressful fashion situation, we’ve decided to round up our top metallic and monochrome picks for you to choose from. Which piece is your hero buy? Could a metallic Mulberry Del Rey bag entice you with its roomy shape, or are you in favour of a statement monochrome peplum top?

Pick away, and excuse us while we continue to decide…
