Running out of outfit ideas? When in doubt, go monochrome! It's easy to style and you most likely already have pieces in your closet you can mix and match, so there's absolutely no need to burn a hole in your wallet! Learn how to achieve this tonal aesthetic courtesy of Laureen Uy's latest OOTD.
Here's the trick: Start with a base color (often the dominant or stand-out piece in your look). Laureen's coffee brown coat from Mantou Clothing is definitely catching our interest and is a good centerpiece for an earthy ensemble. She layered it atop a matching light brown tank and trousers, possibly well-aware of the fact that going a shade lighter (or darker) is key to not looking too bulky or boxy. Opting for similar shades also work to create a seemingly uninterrupted line that elongates your silhouette, thus making you look taller. Lastly, don't forget to match different fabrics to add more depth to your look.
