The Apple Shape Wardrobe: Do You Ever Wear Monochromatic looks?

Do you ever wear monochromatic looks? I have a friend who always does, and one time she mentioned that she does it to simplify her life.

Inspiration from Glee

She said she was inspired by the Glee character Emma Pillsbury. I immediately googled her and was in love with her style and the concept of wearing all one color! Here are some monochromatic looks she wears on the show-

I want to copy this the most

My favorite style idea from Emma Pillsbury that I immediately wanted to copy was her stacking a statement necklace on top of the same colored top. Aren’t these gorgeous?! It kind of acts like a collar!

Why wear all one color?

I don’t know why but it was such a new concept for me to wear all one color from head to toe! It really resonates with my lazy side. It also looks so chic and put together. And like my friend said, it does simplify life to not have to match things!

My take on the monochromatic look

Sometimes I add a different color for accessories for visual interest like below:

Taupe ankle booties + taupe messenger bag for an all black outfit.
Gray slouchy beret + gray peep-toe ankle booties for an all navy outfit.
Brown leather shoes for an all cream outfit.

What do you think? I think my friend is pretty genius for dressing this way.

*Items similar to what I’m wearing-

All black outfit Black felt hat. Black sweater. Black leggings. Taupe messenger bag. Taupe ankle booties.

All navy blue outfitGray knit beret. Navy blue top. Navy blue skinny jeans. Gray peep toe ankle booties.
