MONOCHROMATIC: Power of Navy

As a New Yorker, the default perception of monochromatic is all black. It’s the easiest (and laziest) way to look effortlessly cool and chic. I say that this goes for navy as well; its a color engrained in all of our staples such as denim and shirts. Yet we look at them as complementary pieces, not the central attention of our outfits. So this is me defying the unconscious tendency and making it all about that navy.

Since this look was consistent in color, I played around with a looser silhouette. From unbuttoning the sleeves of the denim-looking shirt to wearing an oversized coat, the monochromatic theme kept everything in tact. This was quite impactful at a glance, so expect to see more monochromatic styles (in different colors) coming from me. Happy styling!
