Monochromatic Pattern Play

SHIRT: Forver 21 (similar and love this) | SWEATER: Southern Jewlz (similar here, here, and here) | LEGGINS: J. Crew Factory | BOOTIES: Steve Madden (similar) | HAT: Target | HANDBAG: Michael Kors (similar)

I do tend to favor bright colors any time of the year.  They give more color and life to my usually very pale skin and they just brighten your day!  This winter I have been gravitating towards a more monochromatic look with subtle colors or blacks, whites, and grays.  This look can usually be achieved with things that you already own.  To create a monochromatic look, put together pieces that are in the same color family.  I like to add at least one item that stands out a little more than the others.  In this outfit, both the shirt and sweater have a pattern so that helps give the look some dimension.  Then I also added a small color pop with my purse and lips.  This type of look is great if you have a fabulous accessories that you want to draw all the attention to.  Monochromatic doesn't mean boring!

I would love to see how you styled your monochromatic looks!  Happy Tuesday y'all!
