Dress Code: Monochrome

Hi, everyone! 

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

This trench coat (similar here) is one of my favorite pieces to wear this season. Here, I'm wearing it over nude pants (similar here) and pairing it with nude heels to complete the monochrome look.


#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!
