A Monochromatic Mix of Navy

Monochromatic looks, from all-black ensembles to head-to-toe neutrals, have been dominating trends for a few seasons now. I’m definitely a fan of this approach to wearing color because of the endless opportunities it presents for mixing pieces in your wardrobe. Whether we go totally matchy-matchy, experiment with different shades of a color, or play with texture in a single color, interesting monochrome outfits can be made.

In today’s post, I’m mixing one of my favorite colors this fall—navy blue. My J.Crew Factory Velvet Skinnies (back in new colors) from last fall get new life when paired with a navy sweatshirt with stripe sleeves.

      Thanks, Sandie! Those are small, two-strand twists on the top. The twists were curled with perm rods.
