Dress and Jacket by Bec & Bridge // Shoes by Steve Madden // Sunnies by Quay // Horseshoe necklace by Tiffany Kunz // Watch by Movado

I’ve always been into the black-on-black version of monochromatic but this last year I’ve widened my horizons with other same-hue looks, using actual...color *gasp*. My girl, Natalie Chapman, does great slip dresses with matching blazers and I think I’ve dressed Zuri Hall in nearly every set. So, as silk trenches have begun filling up the racks of my favorite stores, I’ve switched from the tried-and-true blazer into something a little more flirty while still keeping the same shade underneath. I found this Bec & Bridge combo at my favorite store on the Sunset Strip, Kin LA, and I have to be honest when I say that it’s the first dress look that I didn’t really want to take it off. While the dress alone is good for a Saturday night out, adding the jacket makes it appropriate for just about anything you need to get done that day, for example: running through traffic or dancing down a Silverlake sidewalk. One thing I always do to make a monochromatic look a bit more edgy is to choose an oversized jacket rather than something fitted or cropped; it makes your frame appear more petite and with celebs like Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid showing us that sexy isn’t always skin tight, I think this is a trend we should all get behind. Loosen up and add 50 Shades of Something, it all sounds a bit more comfortable.
