Military Inspired Monochrome


Monochrome look is as fun as it can be but it is  not for everyone. There is always that tendency for monochrome fashion to veer into "The Uniform" territory but the risk can be worth it when it is done right. This military inspired look is one of such looks but as we all know; "confidence is key" to pulling off any look. So, if you decide to recreate this look and someone stops you in the street and ask you what military platoon you belong to, do not be offended! Hehehe 😂

Every piece in this outfit came into existence at different seasons and years but they all came together in harmony as an outfit a few days ago. I purchased the olive color sweater dress from TJmaxx a long time ago and layered a black long sleeve tee underneath it because the sleeves are short. The shoes were purchased a year after I got the sweater dress and I blogged about it HERE. The long olive green trench coat was gotten at a consignment shop in my neighborhood and the coat is really heavy but very chic and comfy. I have said in my previous posts on here that you can get good quality vintage coats and blazers from consignment stores and thrift stores; just make sure you have them dry cleaned afterwards and store them in a safe place where they can retain their shape and quality until they are ready for use.

Now, I know my blog is focused on Winter fashion at the moment but you can recreate this look by swapping the long coat for a blazer or a khaki color trench coat or a cardigan. Olive color, camo and khaki colors are trending this season and Hey! Cardigans are a big deal right now too. This outfit reminds me of a very popular bible verse of the bible and if you do not know the verse, just scroll down a bit to my Bible verse of the day. Thanks so much for stopping by here. Enjoy the rest of your day.
