Today I'm experimenting with a monochromatic color scheme. If you follow my blog, you may know that this is not my typical style. I tend to incorporate at least one pop of color -usually shoes or bags- to refrain from using too much of one color. However, I keep seeing other ladies successfully pull off using just one color in their look, and I decided to try it myself.
Given that its a little out of my comfort zone, I started off with a simple look; pairing together one of my favorite dresses, with one of my favorite pairs of flats, and a nicely structured bag. I personally love the deep, wine-colored red. Its very classy and easy to style. I suppose the denim jacket could be construed as a pop of color -hey, old habits die hard!- but it also acts as an anchor. Its' a little hard to tell in the picture, but the flats in particular are slightly lighter shades of red than the dress and bag. Its not terribly noticeable at a glance but it is there. The jacket helps distract from the color difference a bit.
This is such a great go-to outfit for when you're on the go or for a casual Sunday afternoon or brunch or errands... Its simple, chic, and especially nice with this ever-changing temperatures (although I ran a bit warm during the shoot.)
What do you think?
I hope you have a great weekend!!
