Monochromatic outfits can come across as boring if they don't have much interest in regard to texture, pattern, or unique details. I avoided the boredom, by incorporating all three of those things into this outfit: the texture is in the three different choices of fabric, the pattern is in the skirt, and the details are in the trims on the two tops.
Even though this is a monochromatic outfit there is so much visual interest because of the pattern in the skirt, the grommets in the neckline, and the leather trim on the cardigan.
For jewelry I chose a black and silver bracelet, silver rings, and black drop earrings.
I debated on whether to wear tall black boots or black suede booties, and I chose booties. However, it ended up being a lot colder outside than I thought it would be (hence the indoor photos) and I wished I would have went with the tall boots as my legs were freezing!
For outerwear, I chose a faux black leather coat; also from CJBanks.
I bought this coat on clearance this year because I liked the longer length. I own two other faux leather black jackets, but they are cropped.
As I write this post there is yet another winter storm going on. It looks like a white-out blizzard outside! I wish I could start showing spring outfits, but spring in Wisconsin is always late in arriving.
And for those of you who enjoy looking back at my older posts to see other ways I've worn the same item, here is a way I styled this skirt for warm weather:
Ha-ha! Looking back at these old posts can be so much fun sometimes. It's one of the many reasons I love to blog. It preserves my memories!
Have a Great Day! Amy
