monochrome outfit

All Red

Tis the season to be stylish. With upcoming holiday events and parties we want to look our best. The power color of the season is red. So, how could I not wear this color? It's festive and fun.

You can just imagine my joy when Tracee Ellis Ross came out with a collection at JCPenney. I've loved her and her style ever since Girlfriends. I love her fashion sense and self-confidence. Her style to me is retro with a modern twist. Her collection is full of sequins, fun patterns, and vibrant colors like this red duster and trouser set. 

Red is a great way to add a pop of color to your outfit but, also looks amazing in a monochromatic look. It looks so fashionable and chic. 

I broke up the red with my favorite color, black. This semi-sheer knit bodysuit has an allover floral lace design which is a great compliment to this set. It adds a sexy appeal to the look.

I love this outfit. I feel comfortable, chic and it's at a great price. I love that this look can be for everyone. The collection comes in regular and plus size. I will say that it runs big. I'm wearing a size Large duster and an X-Large bottom. Both size runs are on the links below.

Transition to Spring

Spring is a time for regrowth- in fashion of course. Our wardrobes start to transition from jackets to sweaters, from darker tones to a lighter color palette. 

Style Tip: This time of year is all about lightening up your look. Wear lighter knits, blouses, cardigans, and skinny scarves. Weather can be unpredictable - I suggest to layer up lighter fabrics.

As the weather gets warmer a little everyday - I find myself picking out lighter fabrics and colors. This outfit from Fashion to Figure is a perfect transition look for Spring. This open knit sweater is breezy and pairs perfectly with these white jeans. I love that these jeans are stretchy and have a fun lace-up details on the side of the pants. A pair of lace-up shoes with an open toe and back are a great bootie for Spring.

Wear It Over and Over Again

When I shop for clothes I always have it set on my mind to shop for things I can wear over and over again. I like things that are versatile. I'm always up for the challenge to wear those things completely different, almost recognizable. Black clothes are very versatile, you can wear over and over again. Another tip is buy staple pieces like trousers, a vest, and booties because I guarantee you'll wear these multiple times.

Style Tip: Create a monochromatic look by wearing separates of one color that have different textures and/or similar shades of that color for an overall tonal look.

You might have seen this vest, trousers, and booties before on my other posts. I have joined all these pieces together and created a monochromatic look. It's chic, very simple to put together and to replicate. The vest I wore as a top just by tying the belt from my trousers over my waist. I layered this long vest over some trousers and finished the look with high ankle booties.
