Fall 2013 Trend: A monochromatic look

Last Week's Collaboration on Leather.

This week's trend is monochromatic (see last week's trend). It has always been a favorite trend of mine. The outfit today showcases a monochromatic look using different shades of black. The key to keep a monochromatic look interesting is playing with patterns. You want to incorporate as many different patterns as you can to create dimension. One color from head to toe isn't boring when you mix textures and patterns =)


What I am wearing:
Dress: Express  *old* (buy this year's version or similar)
Blazer: Espirit *old* (under $30 or petite version)
Sunglasses: Prada 17OS
Earrings: Chanel (buy similar in silver)

I'm really enjoying this collaboration series and each of the looks you ladies are putting together. I actually have this year's version of your dress, so thanks for the ideas on how to style it for fall!

Hi Sydney! I'm visiting from Tara's linkup today. I love this monochrome look on you - the patterns in your dress and scarf really make the outfit. =)

I hope you are having a great week so far!
