How to Wear Winter Neutrals

With winter still going strong, sometimes it is hard to find inspiration in what to wear everyday, especially when you’ve worn the same combination of a puffer jacket and jeans a dozen times. However, one of the easiest ways to break out of that rut is to stick with one color!

Creating a monochrome outfit might seem boring, I mean it’s essentially all the same color so why would it be that cool. What makes it so awesome is that not many people do it, and if they do, it tends to be all black, which doesn’t always stand out in a crowd. Instead, focus on choosing the right color for you! I opted for brown tones but any other neutral color will work—one of my favorites right now is an all green look. Plus, you can pull off monochromatic fashion all year, just change the color depending on the season.

The key to any look that is centered around the same color is TEXTURE. This is such an easy way to give this look so much more interest and depth. For my look, I chose a knitted t shirt from Pull & Bear (find similar here) to give my look that touch of texture. On top of that, I wore a thrifted brown wool overcoat (similar here) that is perfect for winter and the transition into spring temperatures. Wool overcoats are also a wardrobe staple that never go out of style, so investing in one is a great idea.

I paired the brown on top with some dark, ripped denim jeans to give the look a bit of an edge to balance out the more dressed up vibe of the coat. For shoes, I went with a pair of brown suede chelsea boots (find them here) to continue with the more sophisticated vibe of the coat and shirt combination. Chelsea boots are another one of those staples that everyone should have in their closet, especially since they come in a variety of colors and materials that you can really find ones that go with the individuality of your clothes.

Creating a monochrome outfit is not only easy, but also a great way to get out of your style comfort zone this winter—or any season for that matter. It’s a chance to stand out from the crowd and you can show off your favorite color (honestly, I could have done that with my yellow obsession lol).
