When in fashion doubt, go monochrome.
A style tip, one of the best and easiest is to wear one colour or varying shades of one colour from top to toe.
Monochrome is always a strong fall back position.
The reason I wear monochrome most of the time is not only is it an easy solution but also it is figure flattering as it lengthens and trims the body.
You know me well by now. Black is my default; grey and winter white a close call for second. Then there is navy, which I am becoming more and more fond of.
When I wear monochrome I usually switch it up with a different style of jacket or if I’m wearing exclusively one colour I will introduce a contrast with accessories. Yesterday, for a trip to Brussels I wore all black and added a cape. It was a subtle difference but it did add interest and a texture change.
I have a huge cape crush this year and even if I wear all, all black, a cape adds that extra flair.
I know I am enthusiastic with the neutrals if you can call black, cream, grey and navy neutrals but for a monochrome looks they have never let me down. Monochrome dressing saves time when indecision rears its naughty little head.
I suspect monochrome is the one style rule many people follow. It is a dependable way to look polished and well groomed. xv
