Cardigan: H&M; Skirt: BCBG; Shoes: Banana Republic: Belt: J. Crew; Watch: Michael Kors; Bracelet: 31 Bits
I love combining different colors in one outfit, but there's something about a monochromatic look that always feels fresh. The high waisted BCBG skirt balances nicely when worn with a cropped cardigan. Since the two greys don't match perfectly, it doesn't feel too matchy-matchy, especially when paired with another shade of grey peep toes shoes. By sticking with one color, it creates a streamlined silhouette that doesn't feel too stuffy.
