If this was my winter uniform, this one can be considered as the spring/ early summer version of it. After playing with navy, baby blue and beige the last few weeks, I went back to my trusty monochrome palette. I am quite fond of the carefree attitude that goes hand in hand with these type of outfits. Deep gray compliments pitch black nicely, whichever silhouette or style you’re going for. If we add the minimal amount of time required for dressing in these matching tones, we’ve got ourselves a pretty good style cocktail.
I would argue anyone who says this combination is too bland or simple. Might be so looking at it solely from the perspective of (non)colors included, but to be frank, there’s nothing simple about the mix of textures I’ve got going on here. Ribbed rollneck is such a lovely contrast to the smooth surface of faux leather pants and (partially) selfmade triangle bag. To really spice things up, I added a touch of velvet with my timeless court shoes. Heels worked well here, but they could be easily replaced with pointed flats or simple slides for a more dressed down version.
When dealing with such simple colors and silhouettes, you want to really fire up your styling game with powerful details. My choice? Tucking everything into anything. Nonchalantly tuck your hair into the rollneck and the rollneck into the pants; it oozes that “I-just-got-out-of-bed-and-threw-this-on” feeling. To me, street style is all about that. The same vibe can be achieved with slightly rolling up your sleeves and/or trouser legs. Lastly, play around with geometric shapes and proportions. Pointed heels + triangle bag + DIY tube ring got the job done for me.
