There’s something to be said for monochromatic looks. There’s also something to be said for these amazing J Brand velvet jeans that I picked up at Lyla a few weeks ago. I’ve been wearing them endlessly since I first picked them up. The inky blue color is stunning and they go with just about everything. Creating a monochromatic look is pretty easy and always makes for a chic result. All black is an easy starting point that we’ve all fallen back on when pressed for time or felt that we were lacking in sartorial creativity. When creating a monochromatic look pick a starting piece and build from there. Then, pick some other pieces with the same colour tone. You can have a lot of fun coordinating the outfit. Just remember that they don’t all have the be the same exact shade of the colour.

    Those jeans are incredible, I didn’t even notice they were velvet at first! This is such a stunning look, something I’d expect to see on Stockholm Street Style and the like!
