I call this my fearless look because it's one of those trends that I really have never done. I was inspired by In Style's color booklet (an insert in their January issue) and all these rad color combinations that I hadn't thought about pairing. But I took it one step further and thought, "what if I picked one color and did something monochromatic?" Boom. The rest is history.
I've preached about my love for yellow a few times on my instagram, specifically maize. It's such a happy and energetic color. It's attention grabbing and it also plays up my eyes and my brown locks, and also accentuates my light skin. I love the way it looks with the cobalt blue Louboutins. It's a perfect pairing. Double pop of color in your face.
Because the color is so rich and bold, I kept the look minimal so it could get the "all eyes on me" attention it deserves. The crop sweater top is from H&M and the skirt is from J.Crew. I added a very simple gold necklace from Forever 21 and a gold clutch.
Nothing beats a powerful red lip to compliment this outfit. It only makes the color stand out even more. Like my flowing tresses? I have Aveda to thank for that!
Here's my advice to any daring fashionista wanting to try this look- shop in your own closet! You'd be surprised how many monochromatic possibilities are just sitting pretty waiting to make their grand debut. Give some of those pieces a second look and a second chance. Avoid black. It's too easy. Go for a color you normally wouldn't wear!
