Beige on Beige

It’s been popping up for months on feeds and in fashion articles, but it wasn’t until i was scrolling my own actual closet that I even consider trying it out for myself. When I think monochromatic dressing my first instinct is to reach for blacks, greys, whites or even dramatic colors. 

Beige is a color that for whatever reason seems to get a bland rap. However, as the runways have proven (at least to me) when paired all together it creates a classic look that still has an easy casual vibe that says, “I just threw this one before running out the door”. 

Will this be my go to color from now on? No, but I will definitely be reaching for it way more often now!

I love a good monochromatic look, but sometimes find myself wanting a bit more. Playing with texture is the easiest way to do this. Not featured cause the sun (finally) came out is my big black teddy bear coat, which added another layer of fun material to step up this all black look. As the weather continues to warm up I plan on playing around with monochromatic dressing even more– I’m thinking pinks, yellows, and maybe even lavender, but am open to suggestions!

As I’ve gotten older I’ve started to lean into simpler outfits more often than not. When I’m running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off on too much coffee at 6 am try to get out the door the last thing I want to do is stress about what to wear. That being said it’s easy to fall into a style rut when you have a go to uniform (mine being black, black and more black). Lately however, I have found that by sticking to a different color (or close to it) I can create the same elongating, chic effect as I do with an all black outfit, while having it be slightly more eye catching and daytime appropriate.
