You know when people say, “Black, like my soul!”? Ugh, it bugs me. Black is one of the palette pillars of my closet, so I don’t like people misrepresenting my love! I adore the color black, but I don’t have a dark soul, okay? Glad we’ve covered that. Now onto the point…
Have you ever been hesitant to wear an outfit that’s all the same color? I know it can be a little freaky at first, but I’m here to say that with a few tips and tricks you could be onto styling some of the most chic outfits you’ve ever worn, especially to work. Thinking up new outfits for work each day can be exhausting, so knowing how to throw together some monochrome pieces together will reduce your decision making time. And then maybe grab a few more winks of sleep? Let’s get to my tips!
- Opt for tailored pieces to make pairing items of the same color easier like collared shirts or a-line fit skirts – these are also very office appropriate as well
- Pick dynamic designs like bell sleeves or cascading ruffles to add interest to a monochromatic outfit
- Use accessories to break up the same color like belts, scarves, or earrings – but make sure to choose a neutral color as an accent so that you don’t take away from the monochromatic look
- Add in a contrasting color in with layers like a denim jacket or military jacket if you need a little warmth in the office
And don’t forget that the Nordstrom Sale ends on August 6th, so make sure to grab any items you’ve had your eye on! I’m sharing some of my favorite items to wear at the office below:
