I'm not typically one to be monochromatic in my attire. However, as I was telling Carylee the other day, the thought of dressing all black has been on my mind lately, so I took the plunge. I came up with two different outfit ideas to share with you. Then you can tell me which one you prefer.
First up, I've been feeling like I've neglected to give my black Portofino wear time, so this was the perfect opportunity to wear it again along with my Moto Jacket. As you can see, I just couldn't resist adding a touch of leopard print too :-)
Top - Express, option // Leggings - LOFT // Jacket - Target, option // Booties - Target, option, option // Necklace - LOFT, option // Sunnies - Coach, option
The second outfit was inspired by Gina when she mentioned pairing this Baroque Tiered Lace Tank with a blazer. Coincidentally, I have both of those items in black so it was meant to be tried for this black on black experiment.
Baroque Lace Tanks - Express // Scuba Leggings - Express // Blazer - Target, similar // Necklace - J.Crew Factory (on sale) // Shoes - Apt 9 via Kohls, option, option (love these!) // Bag - Michael Kors, similar
The key to wearing an outfit that is monochromatic is to be sure you mix up the fabric textures and/or patterns. This will keep the outfit visually interesting & far from boring. All in all, my experiment went well I think. It's always refreshing to break out of your normal fashion routine once in a while...it gives you the confidence that you can pull off something outside of your traditional patterns. I will say one thing - wearing all black does make you feel like a bad *&^, heehee.
We have a night out this coming weekend to celebrate a friends birthday & I figured that would be the perfect time to wear one of these out. So, what do you think...option 1 or option 2?? Or a mix of the two? Feel free to speak your mind :-)
