Inspired by Chriselle Lim's recent post on Why Everyone Should Monochrome, I decided to experiment with pieces in my closet and give it a try! I've put together four outfits suitable for different occasions. Read on!
#Monochroming: Office Style
#Monochroming: Brunch with Girlfriends
This sweater from Naked Cashmere has been on repeat since I got it. It's so soft and warm, and I love the little peekaboo one-shoulder design. This is perfect for brunch because it is chic, yet comfortable (and the sweater hides my full belly after a big brunch). I paired it with the same berry-colored pants and pink/nude chunky-heel sandals.
#Monochroming: Weekend Vibes
Possibly my favorite look out of the four here, this white-out monochrome outfit was so easy to put together and perfect for a weekend day out! All l I had to do was to pick out everything that is white in my closet and throw them on. This one-shoulder top is so much fun to wear thanks to the tiered ruffle sleeves. I styled it with a white denim skirt and my current favorite pair of white boots (find out why you need them this month).
#Monochroming: Something Fancy
I recently discovered a new brand called Par en Par and am actually really excited to share this outfit with you guys! Usually, I think it is bold to wear red head-to-toe, but I really like how effortless this outfit turned out to be! The brand features elegant resortwear so the material is soft and very light. I could've easily worn the red slip dress and robe with white sneakers, flats, or sandals, but I completed the monochrome with a pair of red tassel heels (similar here).
Which one out of the four is your favorite? Leave a comment and let me know!
