Monochrome {Burgundy + Blush}

Friday, January 20, 2017

Surprisingly enough, 2017 has started off with many special celebrations, from birthdays to baby showers! I wanted to share with you a monochrome look that I wore to a recent event, which can be easily transitioned from work to play. Rich colors, like burgundy and berry tones are gorgeous to wear during the winter months. They look beautiful against the colorful leaves and wintery snow all around. 

To compliment, you can certainly add a long cardigan in any beige or grey shade, but for the office, a blush blazer gives a lovely, softened contrast to this look. Putting together monochrome outfits is essentially choosing varying shades from the same color wheel and pairing them together to create one cohesive look. To give you more of an idea, you can pair a cream top with white skinny jeans, a beige coat, and complete your outfit with black loafers. 

Keeping with the burgundy/berry tones, I used a new favorite product in my makeup look from Bite Beauty, which is their Multistick in Brioche! It's described as a rich terracotta shade, but translates on my skin as a stunning deep mauve shade. This multistick looks phenomenal as a wash of color on your eyelids, draped across your cheeks, and as a plumping lip color. Since it's a hybrid of a creamy matte formula, it applies and blends effortlessly with a brush or makeup sponge. I plan to do a review very soon on this recent find, so please stay tuned for that.

Monochrome looks can be quite easy to achieve. Shop your closet for similar shades and colors, mixing textures and patterns to bring personality to your look.  

Style Tip: Incorporate different fabrics and textures when pairing similar colors, as I did here with this velvet top from Old Navy and this ribbed midi skirt from Nordstrom Rack.

I hope this inspires you to give the monochrome look a try! Thank you for hanging out with me a while and have a great weekend ahead!

Warmly ~
