Valentines Day OOTD: Red Monochrome

Holiday Red Monochrome 6

Valentines Day is upon us, and todays Red Monochrome Valentines Day OOTD will help you to plan what you will wear this year, whether single or with a beau.

OOTD Details

This Valentines Day you could wear the typical red or pink ensemble OR you could wear a not-so-typical outfit like I did in todays OOTD by incorporating one of this seasons biggest trends: monochrome.  Keeping with the Valentines Day tradition, I am wearing red from head-to-toe (well, almost).  By the way, Can’t get enough of the picturesque bridge?  Check out this OOTD Post featuring Alexa in Vintage Thierry Mugler against the Brooklyn Bridge.

There are many reasons this monochrome look is easy to pull off:  First, I mix pattern and texture with a silk polka-dot blouse, suede studded belt, and shiny leather skirt.  Also, I break up the color monotony by pairing accessories in a contrasting camel color. (Camel also goes well with Chrysanthemum Pink, like I demonstrate in this Camel and Chrysanthemum Post).  The Juicy Couture faux-fur and tweed coat serves both purposes (texture and contrast).

Accessories 

My accessories include a red suede belt by Betsey Johnson and a ruby necklace that was a gift from my sweet mother.  My shoes are Louis Vuitton Show Shoes from a few seasons back while my camel-colored snakeskin bag is vintage.
