I had so much fun putting together an all white look last week that I decided to continue with a monochromatic theme and showcase a few of my favorite dark brown pieces. I love the warmth and richness of a chocolatey brown, and there’s just something so sophisticated about layering it for a monochromatic look. Not only is brown versatile, but it can also be a great place to start if you’re hesitant about wearing all one color, and want to ease into it with a neutral.
An important thing to remember when styling a monochromatic outfit is that not every piece needs to be the exact same color, and you’ll come to find that even similar shades will contrast nicely when paired together. As I mentioned in my last post, texture is everything, which is what makes winter the perfect season to try a monochromatic look, as you’ll have no trouble finding different layers to add. A few easy options that I love working with are faux suede and leather, velvet, and satin or silk. I chose faux leather culottes but a textured legging like these could also be a fun option. For a top, sweaters are the perfect layer as there are so many great textures to choose from. Sadly my ribbed turtleneck is sold out, but I also love this classic cable knit sweater. For my final layer, I was excited to cozy up in this gorgeous faux fur coat from last season. This year there are a few similar options, but I think my favorite has to be this one from Sanctuary.
For final touches, consider going bold with a statement shoe, other accessory, or even a fun brightly colored lipstick. The result is a simple outfit that looks polished, and effortlessly chic. Have you tried any monochromatic looks this season?
