Monochromatic

Nailing the perfect monochrome look can be tricky — while in retrospect it should be fairly easy  to do.. just pick a color and your done, right? Unfortunately, this is not always the case and by doing so can sometimes leave you looking like one singular blob. To make sure I keep an overall tonal look I stick with similar shades and mix up the textures to add interest to my look. In fact, when you keep your overall outfit within the same color hue, the outcome can be just as striking as wearing a bold pattern or pop of color. I also added some gorgeous chrome to my look to keep things interesting and less casual. I love dressing up my outfits with the silver statement necklace, like the one I am wearing here. It adds instant luxe without even trying! Mirina Collections has an amazing collection of this stylish necklace and was just featured in New York Fashion Week 2016. I have added a collection of my favorite ones at the bottom and you can use code: talesofher for 20% off sitewide!
