This time the challenge on our community of Venezuelan fashion bloggers was to create a monochromatic outfit. Total white and black looks were practically excluded from the challenge: this was an invitation to play with color.
After getting momentarily depressed by all the grey, white and black that lives in my closet, I tried to put togheter something with the red items that survived the huge wardrobe cleanse I did beforme coming to Brazil. I tried and failed. Tried again mixing some nude hues. Another big fail. Clearly, it was about time to do some shopping!
I was able to find this boxy dress at an outlet for a ridiculous price. It required some arrangements and I’m actually wearing it backwards: I just think it’s more modern that way and I also love the detail on the neck imitating a chocker, which is super trendy right now, so you’ll be seeing more of it on upcoming posts!
Because it’s so simple, I deciced to add a darker shade with the shoes for some contrast. You can also wear the exact same color all over, in which case I suggest to mix different textures and lenghts to give some interest to the look.
A third color is welcome, as long as it’s neutral. Extra tip: Smaller accessories are less distracting, that way you don’t lose the mono effect an keep the atention on your main color.
