This is part two of a three part series.

Last week I wore this top/ blazer combination with a cream leather disc mini. Today I created a more casual version of the monochrome look with jacquard shorts.

Two lessons to learn:

1. Monochrome works best with mixed textures.

2. If you wear a solid look, add a printed accessory.

Anytime you go with solids you need to add a texture or a print. My shorts, top and blazer layer well because of the varying prints; since my pony hair, leopard platforms are so far away from all of the texture, they work and add some depth to an otherwise too-airy look.

What I wore: Zara Blazer, Zara Top, Zara Shorts, Steve Madden Platforms, Celine Bag

    I agree that texture is important (with all layering really, but especially when doing it in the same color) – love this outfit & especially adore those shoes!! 🙂

    Texture is so much fun to play with and you’ve created such a beautiful look with it! So simple yet chic 🙂
