how to wear monochromatic black

 The everyday outfit.

If you catch me out running errands, I’ll probably be wearing something like this outfit.  Actually last month, I did a quick 24 hour trip to Houston and wore this exact outfit.  Let’s be honest, when you have a 5am flight you don’t want to think about what to wear.  That’s where monochromatic black comes to the rescue…


Wondering how to wear monochromatic black without looking boring?   The key is to mix textures and shapes.  I’m mixing a girly peplum with a masculine jacket and my ripped jeans add texture.

As far as this jacket goes, it has been such a staple in my wardrobe!  Even though it’s faux leather, I must admit I like it MORE than my real leather jackets.  It’s so durable and stylish.  See more ways I styled it here, here, and here.

Think of this as your Monday outfit.  Want to wear this to work?  Swap the ripped jeans for these black twill pants and classic pumps.  (I have these and they come in so many fun colors and are actually comfortable.)   

I hope this outfit inspiration helps you out when you’re in a hurry one day.  Looking for some under $60 options?  Just shop them below!  XO
