50 Shades of Fall

50 Shades of Fall

This week we’re covering all the big fall trends! Besides statement sleeves, another fall trend I’ve been noticing is monochromatic looks. To be completely honest, it reminds me of when I was 8 - I would buy all of my clothes from Gap and wear completely matching, monochromatic outfits.

Monochromatic Look

I actually planned this look before I noticed the trend and it just so happened that it’s a primarily brown outfit. I always worry that over-the-knee boots make me look shorter, but I like that when I wear them with these brown pants they blend together and it makes me feel like my legs don’t look quite as short as if I were wearing jeans.

If the monochromatic look is something you were thinking about trying, I think it looks best when it incorporates a few different shades of the color. Although my pants and boots are the same shade of dark brown, I wore a lighter brown sweater, and a white tank underneath.

I also have to mention that this sweater is from Abercrombie. For a while I’ve been really impressed with their new stuff and they have frequent sales that make all of their pieces really affordable. I snagged this sweater at 40% off and I liked that it wasn’t especially long!
