Majorly Monochromatic

Quite the pixie, this fresh-faced little lady makes mid-60′s, Talbots-style look chic. Granted, the modern cut with shaved sides, side-swept bangs and Brooke Shields’ brows lend an edge, but it’s the monochromatic dressing that also packs a punch. This woman layered neutrals on top of one other, but more saturated hues also work. Build slowly as she did, and incorporate a scarf of a similar color. Also make sure to play with different textures so that the look isn’t too flat, and stay away from the exact same color or you’ll end up looking too “matchy-matchy”.

Who says monochromatic equals boring?

    Um…. this is amazaballz. If I had a less round jewish face that wants to hold onto its several chins more then it wants to be an adult I would cut my hair like this IMMEDIATELY. Further, I live for this look. As a French impostor, trapped in a middle eastern/ scottish tragedy ( stunning non the less ), I can totally get down with this classic yet fresh look.
    Thank you thePLEAT for always making me HAPPY!

    p.s long live drew xo
