Outfit Post: All Black Errrythang







 
Skirt: H&M (last seen here)
Top: Target (old - very similar style here on sale!)
Shoes: Zara
Bracelet: Banana Republic (old - awesome and affordable option here)
Earrings: Jewelmint "Versaille"
Clutch: Vintage
Lips: Revlon  Matte "Stormy Pink"
 
Forgive the title, apparently I think I'm a rapper..... and a comedian :) After researching and writing this post about Chevy inspiration, I've had monochromatic schemes on my brain. In particular, I've been obsessing over an all grey ensemble, but I wanted to work with what I already had. (i.e. I have no grey and need some pronto!!)
 
I never thought to pair this tank with the skirt for a black-on-black look, but I actually think they look great together. Black is slimming so double score! I added on some silver-toned bling to match the studded detail on the skirt. Plus, I think the sparkles brighten up the whole look.
 
When trying a monochromatic look, stick to colors you're already comfortable with. Since you'll be rocking a lot of it at once, you better like it! My favorite outfits are the bolder ones, like an electric blue tailored suit, but chances are you can go white or black with what's already in your closet. Start there and then if you find yourself falling for the one-color wonder, invest in some brighter colors.
 
P.S. my summer love for metallic nails is totally carrying over into fall...
