STYLE GURU STYLE: Three Shades of Gray

There’s nothing I love more than throwing on my comfy gray turtleneck sweater and recently I’ve found a new way to rock it. This fall and winter I’ve gotten a lot of inspiration from the Tibi fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection which features comforting, earthy neutral tones. During the runway show, many models wore one color in many different hues and textures from head to toe, looking extremely chic. Mixing patterns and color blocking can be a bit much but using one color in different shades keeps the look simple and clean but looks striking.

I chose to throw on my oversized gray sweater with pair of black (the darkest shade of gray out there) jeans. To match, I threw on a pair of all black booties with a pointed toe that almost match the exact shade of my jeans. To create the monochromatic look, I used a gray winter coat that is a little darker than my sweater. To finish off my look, I added jewelry I wear every day: I wore my Marc by Marc Jacobs watch, my wishbone ring and a few other dainty pieces.

All together, I used four pieces in the same color scheme to get the monochromatic look! Use three pieces that are the same color but in different hues. Not just any pieces will make the look work though. The color has to be visible from head to toe so try picking out a top and bottom in the same color, then chose another piece like a coat, shoes or bag that is the same color as the top and bottoms.

Get My Look: 1. Gray turtleneck sweater. 2. Black skinny jeans. 3. Go-to black boots.
