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!

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