Monochromatic Minimalism

Monochromatic pieces can create a very timeless and chic look; however, sometimes can be intimidating to style  – especially with the color black. Typically with monochromatic looks, you want to play around with fabric, texture and proportion so that an outfit with only one color can still be interesting. Another option is to keep fabrics simple and add a subtle contrast of color. You can add contrast not only with shoes, jewelry and hand bags, but with nail and lip color as well.

For my monochromatic look, I paired a boatneck top with slacks, leopard print shoes and my favorite minimalist jewelry from a local boutique BOHINDI.

How do you style monochrome?

Summer time print mixing

You know those nights where the weather is so perfect [not too hot] that you’re able to mix long sleeves and shorts and still be comfortable? Yep, this night was one of them. I mixed some light and dark prints for a bright and flirty look.

The boyfriend and I took a stroll around short north to a bunch of different bars. Our last stop was a new bar called Eagles that opened up. I highly recommend the fried chicken and biscuits.

All black texture + leopard

I love a great all black look. Typically when I style an outfit this way, I incorporate different materials and textures. In this case, I styled my go to LBD slip dress with my favorite leather jacket. A waist belt with zipper detail and leopard booties tied everything together.
