Monochrome Navy + Gray

Add a slouchy knit beret to complete your cute fall outfits.

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In these pictures I am 5’1′ 140lbs. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

Cute fall outfits wearing monochrome

My friend got me turned on to the style of Emma Pillsbury from the show “Glee.” She does a lot of monochrome outfits, using all of one color through out. Her style is more ladylike than mine, but I was inspired to do some monochrome outfits too. You’ll be seeing more ideas in the future.  It’s simple and flattering on an apple shape because it creates a long, lean line from head to toe, especially when the choice of color is a dark color like navy, black, dark brown, dark gray, maroon, plum, or deep purple.

To make things a little more interesting, I added another cool toned color to the mix with my accessories and bandeau bra. The gray beret, peep of gray under my shirt, and gray peep toe booties keeps the outfit from being boring.

When you do all one color with your outfit, throw in another complimentary color for your accessories and shoes.


Where you can get items similar to what I’m wearing

I love a navy 100% thin, silky polyester top. It skims over the upper body well. A few nice options: A camp shirtA ruffle 3/4th sleeve top. One with two front pockets.  

A pom gray beret. 

Or if you’re looking for a gray wool beret. 

I love bandeau bras for shirts like this that are too low cut. I have one in every neutral color. Here’s a gray one.

Stretchy dark high rise (so they don’t shimmy down) skinny jeans. Cuffed looks better on apple shapes. Since apple shapes tend to have long legs and a short torso, this cuts off the leg a bit and balances things out.

I looked forever for these open toe booties. They are super comfortable because of the thick heel and insole cushioning. It’s especially comfortable for being three inches in height.  It has a cool quilting detail on the back and two zippers on each side for easy removal. They only come in black now.
