We’ve discussed my love of monochrome outfits on several occasions and the ease that it brings to getting dressed, but I think some people still forget that this does not only apply to white, black, or neutrals. Regardless of the hue, assembling an entire look from the same color family will always appear chic and elevated. One of my favorite purchases from Paris was this gorgeous patent-like midi skirt in the most deep & rich wine shade. Despite being beyond excited to add it to my wardrobe, by the time I got home, I was honestly struggling with how to style it. Because the pigment was so bold, I knew I wanted it to be the focal point of my ensemble; but it was also tricky not to pair it with other pieces that would make the look appear oversaturated. Finally, a lightbulb went off and I realized that one of my favorite handbags, and a sweater that I barely wear, were almost a perfect match! At this point, the foundation of the outfit was officially laid. My next steps had to be thought out very carefully because I do not currently own any burgundy outwear or footwear. That said, I decided to take my usual approach when dealing with a fairly dark color palette and use other contrasting garments & accessories to brighten it up! It’s been awhile since I pulled out this off-white faux leather puffer jacket, so I used this as my opportunity! To tie this in, I added a pair of sunglasses and earrings which both featured pearl accents. My eyewear also had some tan elements which I used to compliment my two-toned boots for an extra “subtle” statement. Overall, I was quite pleased with how this styling came together despite the extra thought it may have taken. Remember to have fun with your fashions and know that while some days may be harder than others to get dressed, as long as you focus on the pieces you love and what feels most authentic to you, the final product will always be one you can be proud of!
