STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: All Black Everything

These days it seems like everyone is mad for monochromatic fashion; and I am totally okay with that! This trend is great because it is simple but so chic, and especially great for me considering my closet consists of pretty much two colors: gray and black.

Often people look at wearing all one color as too ‘matchy-matchy,” when in fact, this look is sleek and super flattering! Wearing all one color gives the appearance of being taller which is great for girls on the more petite side.  If you look at this look as drab or plain, try putting in pieces that have some detail or different textures. If you want to be a little bold, try a red lip to give the outfit a pop!

This Fashionista expertly shows off the monochromatic trend. She went with an all black look with her cropped turtleneck, high-waisted black jeans, slouchy thigh-high boots and a sleek trench coat. Following the one color feel, she topped off the look with a swanky tote. This look is so easy yet looks so fashion forward.  Dark tones are perfect for pulling of the monochromatic trend as it is not too flashy, and allows for a sleeker appearance. This Fashionista may be going to class, but she could easily wear this outfit at night. That is the great thing about monochromatic fashion!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “My closet is currently full of turtlenecks because they are so versatile, and of course, super comfortable! They can be dressed up or dressed down and eliminate the need to accessorize my neck with a scarf or necklace. They are my go-to winter trend!”
