A Monochromatic Moment in Gray


For a sleek, sophisticated look, try a monochromatic outfit. As long as you mix fabrics and textures,   it’s not the least bit boring. Recently, celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon and Dita von Teese have been stepping out in various shades of gray. Above, I’ve created an outfit that you can wear from day into night.

My favorite part of this look is the jacket. The belted waist balances out the voluminous sleeves. Chunky heels, statement necklaces, ruffles and snakeskin are all trendy for spring; the rose tint on the sunglasses add a subtle touch of color; and you can never go wrong with a neutral pair of gray jeans.
