Monochrome looks can be severe and uniform-like. But they don’t have to be. I like to do monochromatic outfits with different shades of a single color, and one or two surprising elements. And wearing all solid pieces makes accessorizing easy and lets me repeat outfits more often.
Here is an outfit I wear to work at the thrift shop, or go to lunch with my sister, or grab a solo coffee at the bookstore. The knit top is via Old Navy (sim), and the men’s trousers (sim) were thrifted locally. Men’s trousers are great to thrift, they’re so abundant. They do tend to fit a little loosely in the front seam, however, ahem.
The saddle shoes (sim) were found at a favorite consignment shop. I am not sure they’re staying in my closet as they give a bit of a costume-y feel. If you’re a size 9-ish and like them, let me know and we’ll work something out. The jewelry (sim, sim) was thrifted and/or gifted, forgive my fading memory!
Do you like to dress in a single color head to toe? And would you like to own some saddle shoes?
