How to Wear Monochrome Burgundy

When I do wear color, I do it monochrome! (Per usual.) Full monochrome looks might seem a little risky but I actually think that if done right, they can look like very effortless and put together. And surprisingly enough, it’s actually very easy to do monochrome looks. The key is incorporating different textures when working with one color. You want each piece to be unique but is also cohesive to the color. Textures in each piece will help pull a monochrome look together and prevent you from looking like a solid block of color!

Although it’s winter, it’s still warm enough in LA for the most part to wear a skirt. I paired this a-line leather skirt with a chunky sweater for a look that’s both relaxed and cool. Pairing the knit with leather breaks up the fact that they’re pretty much the same shade. This burgundy knit is a great piece for the winter because it’s super cozy and chic. Knee high foots for the winter is great because they keep my legs warm so I can still wear a skirt. Not to mention, who can resist these fringe suede boots? It’s that 70’s trend continually making its way into winter. I topped this outfit with my neutral Fendi bag. Pairing a neutral color bag will definitely draw the attention to the outfit rather than the bag itself, but I like how the red hues in the bag ties the look together.

I hope this outfit inspires you to create a monochromatic look with your favorite color from your closet! Happy Wednesday!
