Have you tried a monochromatic look yet? I recommend it; it’s easy to pull off and looks chic. Pick a color and go with it. Today, I went with navy. My accessories have a few pops of nude and pink, but overall the look is all about the blues.
I think mixing up a monochromatic look by varying shades or textures (or both) is a good way to venture into this trend. For this look, I played with texture by pairing a neoprene(ish) crop top with a chiffon(ish) pleated skirt. Alternatively, I could have thrown in some lighter or more intense blues. Next time.
A Lovely Side Note: Keep your eyes out for quality pieces at H&M. I picked up this great, well-made crop top at the end of Spring last year. Because of the thickness of the piece, I knew I would not be able to wear it until Fall, but I was ok with that. It’s out and about now in full force.
