Working with varying hues of a single shade can result in a really striking look, and is such a modern way to play with colour. When I saw this Manning Cartell look in varying shades of tan I knew it was the perfect opportunity to do it. And while all three play really nicely together, the beauty of working with neutral pieces is that they also work well separately. I could easily wear this coat, knit and pants with other pieces I already own, making them versatile options throughout winter.
I wanted to continue the colour thread in my accessories, so it was the perfect opportunity to incorporate my Bottega Veneta mesh heels. While the rest of the look is quite classic, these heels are a little punchier in its design, so is the perfect counterpoint. I have had this Gucci bag for a few years and it was the ideal option for this outfit. Just the right shade, look and feel made it a no-brainer option. I finished this look off with black Poppy Lissiman sunglasses, which also added just a hint of contrasting colour.
The next time you want to pull together an impactful look, consider working with a monochromatic colour palette. It’s easy to do but oh-so effective at making a statement.
