Monochromatic Gray

all gray look wThere are two colors getting a lot of attention this spring: blush pink and gray. Today, we’re talking gray. (Blush to come later.)

I’ve been attempting to mix more gray into my life lately, which is a change from my heavy-on-the- black winter wardrobe. It looks great in strong, structured pieces, but still adds an element of softness when compared to harsh black.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, monochromatic looks are pretty simple to pull off.  Try mixing different textures and patterns, as well as different shades of your color of choice. For this look, I went with mostly structured pieces that varied in patterned.

Another option to consider if you are going monochromatic is to add a strong lip.  Here, I have on a bright pink lip by way of Nars Yu Satin Lip Pencil. Gray and pink, a lovely combination, no?

Lovely Side Note: I highly recommend the Nars lip pencils. They’re foolproof (which is exactly what I need); they stay on for hours and the color pigments are incredible! If you’re looking for a discount, sign up for Sephora’s VIB program. Sephora just had a VIB sale last week and will most likely not be having one for a while, but sign up and be prepared for that next sale. Start a Sephora wishlist and add on these Nars pencils!
