Fashion Over Reason: No Color Whatsoever

No Color Whatsoever

No color whatsoever, fashion over reason, all white, monochromatic, fresh summer white denim, park life, brooklyn

Here's the deal: I'm just not that into color. While i love and appreciate it on others, I simply don't particularly enjoy it on myself. Muted neutrals are my jam. Sometimes you'll find me dipping into certain hues I have soft spot for, like red, green or pastels, but mostly I prefer to stick to black. Or in this case, to white.

On certain occasions, I'll reach for a print, but when things are too loud, I get the jitters. That most certainly does not equate to boring -- in fact, donning one single shade from head to (almost) toe packs just as much of a punch as print-mixing. It takes as much confidence to rock a monochromatic ensemble as it does the latter. I highly recommend you give it a go: it's one of the few fail-proof ways to ensure an easy breezy look on a summer day.

I'm exactly the opposite :) I love muted neutrals on other but can't seem to stay away from colours and prints ha!

Will take this as an inspiration to brave the mute look as I love this one.

Love this look and the monochromatic vibe. I am not a print person either, I wear a few, but most just makes me feel like a walking illustration :)

Spoken like a true New Yorker! Haha. I hear you, I use to be...wait for it...a I can relate. But since have brought some color in to my life, but it aint easy. White, black, and gray are still my go to's. And what a great look I have white jeans, a gray tee, and black sandals now all I need is a white vest!
