Happy weekend folks! What are you all getting up to?! I’m working, gymming and catching up on the blog!:) I’ve been meaning to post this outfit for THE longest time, so finally here we are!
I’m sure many of you could put together an ‘all black ootd’ with ease, but can you say the same about colour? It’s actually easier than you think, so I’m hoping after reading this post you’ll be able to pull off your next monochromatic look like a pro! Today we are going to focus on ‘grey’ because a.) I personally think it’s the next easiest colour after black to style b.) I’m sure many of you have grey in your closet c.) it works all year round and d.) grey is my fav colour to wear hehe ;)
Unlike black, where it looks bad when you’re rocking 4 different shades of it, I encourage you to incorporate multiple shades of grey in your outfit. Of course you can dress head to toe in one solid type of grey, but if you want to add some contrast, play around with the colour family.
When I created this look I actually laid out all my grey clothing items on my bed. I started putting together pieces and making outfits and I was able to see what types of greys would compliment one another. I think this is the easiest way to start putting together your monochromatic ootd :)
As you can tell from my outfit, each clothing piece is a different tone of grey. I love how the silver bag adds a little sparkle, and the knit sweater adds texture to this minimalistic look! Experiment with a variety of fabrics to create some depth and character to your stylish ensemble.
If you’re going with the multiple shades of grey look, make sure you are accentuating the right parts of your body. For example, if you want to de-emphasize your bottom half go with a darker pant/skirt and a lighter shade on top.
If you’re not a fan of grey nooo problemo! You can apply the same monochromatic rules on other colours as well! How do you guys feel about monochromatic outfits? Would you rock the grey-on-grey? :) Until next time! – Mitra xo
