Happy Monday, gang! No singing the blues here, as I’m decked out in head-to-toe neutrals. Winter white or ivory is a perfect color scheme to reach for during the gray and dreary months of January and February. We're continuing with a topic I started last week: monochromatic dressing. Embracing the monochromatic trend is a chic, fashion-forward formula with many benefits.
A monochromatic outfit is created with just one color. "Mono" means one, and "chromo" means color or pigment. The good news is that it can be any color: black, navy, grey, pink, red, or yellow. The list goes on and on, so go ahead and pick your favorite color and start experimenting. Monochromatic outfits can be casual or dressy, worn any time of year (pastels in the spring and autumnal tones in the fall), and don’t require much effort.
If you want to make a statement at work, try a monochrome look in the office. An all-white look with trousers and a blazer is a stunning contrast to your ho-hum outfit because workwear can be boring. But again, if you have all the pieces to put together an all-black outfit or all-navy outfit, then go shop your closet. That’s the best shopping spree ever!
Today, we're embracing the monochromatic trend with an all-white outfit

The pants are modeled, and I put together 2 alternates

Today’s OOTD starts with high-waisted pants from Ann Taylor. I’ve said it once but I’ll say it again Ann makes some of the most comfortable and flattering pants I’ve ever owned.
I shop at this retailer repeatedly because Ann Taylor has an excellent selection of blazers, and I typically have at least one hanging in my closet. One tip in putting together a monochromatic outfit is to bring in different textures.
