Good afternoon everyone and happy Wednesday. Today’s post is on layering a monochromatic look, here I have gone for camel on camel. Both of these pieces were bought separately and a year apart. I love it when I can bring pieces out of my closet and style them differently, it gives me so much joy! Anyone else feel the same way?
Now your outfit doesn’t have to be muted, I will show you three other colours that work equally well when it comes to layering. As for the monochromatic look you can play around with so many wonderful colours. If colours are not your thing then stick to your muted tones by all means.
/ DRESS Similar / BLAZER Similar / BAG / BOOTS Similar / SUNGLASSES / BELT Similar /
BLAZER LAYERED ON TOP
So first up is layering a blazer on top of a dress, easy right! Most of us own blazers, so why not go for a blazer that is in the same shade or tone as your dress. Take a look at my outfit, now if I had chosen to wear a black blazer instead of the camel one the outfit would look so different. The tones together make the outfit stand out for me! As for the accessories I opted for black apart from my belt. I wanted to add another tone and the tan belt works rather well with the camel. Also it gives me some shape too as both the blazer and the dress are oversized, this cinches in my waist and pulls the whole look together.
A SHIRT LAYERED UNDER A DRESS OR A VEST JUMPER
Another way to do layering is to layer a shirt under a dress, now I find dresses that have straps or sleeveless ones work the best. I am of course talking about a mini or midi dress. You could also take it another step and add a coat or a blazer on top. This is great for those of you who don’t like showing off your arms.
Next and onto layering a vest jumper, here I would style the shirt under the vest jumper. Then add a pair of high waisted trousers and do a half tuck with the vest top. Again depending on how warm or cold you feel you could add a blazer or coat on top!
LAYERING WITH A ROLL NECK JUMPER
Moving on and onto layering with a roll neck jumper. Again I would style the roll neck jumper under a slip dress whether it’s a mini, midi or a maxi. The roll neck would work well with all of them, and I am talking about a light roll neck jumper not a thick one. A roll neck jumper also works with a short suit which is one of my favourite. I prefer a Bermuda high waisted pair of shorts, next get your roll neck jumper in the same shade and tuck it into your shorts. Then add a blazer in the same shade or tone to complete the look.

Amazing combinations. You look like a doll. Are you a model?
Love this monochromatic look on you-so chic! Layering pieces under and over a dress is a great way to stretch wardrobe options, and it’s always a happy surprise to find something you already own works great with something new! Thanks for sharing!
Your proportions are excellent here, Lovely! Belting the blazer was the way to go! I adore a monochrome look – I do them often.
Perfect outfit! I love layering, it’s cool. And I love most of all, mixing pieces from different seasons to create new outfits.
that’s a beautiful styling, loved the blazer!
You can never go wrong with a camel on camel look. And this one is definitely a cool one: I loooove it! Actually, I’ve just pined it for inspiration 😉
Have a good evening Lovely!

You look fabulous. A perfectly styled outfit.
Beautiful! I like the idea of monochromatic outfits, but I must confess I can’t do it myself. Love the inspiration though.
Love your layering here! The skirt under that coat is fabulous!
I love it when I bring home something new and it goes perfectly with something in the back of my closet! That outfit looks beautiful on you!
Częściej dana rzecz się niszczy za szybko jak dla mnie, w niektórych przypadkach kupiłabym najchętniej to samo. Tylko raz jak do tej pory kupiłam zamiennik bo stara rzecz po prostu już mi się znudziła i potrzebowałam delikatnej zmiany stylu. 5 sezonów jednej kurtki zimowej, w tym roku już nawet nie chciało mi się na nią patrzeć a franca cały czas wyglada dobrze. No i teraz mam dylemat – schować czy pozbyć się?
These are such great tips. The monochromatic look is so chic and flattering especially for petite women like myself. You’ve inspired me to take a look in my closet and try out some monochromatic looks!
Such sophisticated and modern combo, Lovely!
Love that skirt and the way you’ve accentuated your beautiful silhouette with class and elegance!
This is such a chic look! I love how you belted the blazer!
Great Post dear!
