What are your thoughts on monochrome outfits? Boring? Too much of a good thing? Or do you like them?
I remember last year when fashion magazines and street style stars were doing head-to-toe red, or green, or grey. And I loved it. But let’s face it, head-to-toe black is the original “monochrome” outfit!
I agree with some, it can be boring. But it can also be sophisticated. And chic. If you include different textures and fabrics to give the outfit interest, and use accessories that aren’t necessarily straight black, I think it’s a recipe for success. And could there be anything easier to put together???
|Perfection! Love the peacoat, the loafers, and the black skinnies.|
|A plain black cotton blouse with dark jeans and simple heels, yet, the combination is so much more than the sum of its parts!|
|Love the texture added with the leather pants. And the grey flats are adorable!|
|Perfectly “casual chic” Saturday wear!|
|The lace blouse is gorgeous and adds so much texture. And I love that she paired the outfit with white pumps – so unexpected!|
|Here Olivia Palermo adds a feathered bag for texture. Interest is also added with the zippers on the black skinny jeans and the ribbon choker.|
|Love the all-black suit with the Adidas kicks!|
|Yes, yes, yes! Perfection!|
