If there’s one color that I can never tire of, it’s definitely blue. I love varying shades of this timeless hue because it can never go out of style. Blue instantly elevates just about any fabric for a chic yet effortless look, don’t you think?

I especially love blue in the winter months, particularly lighter and paler shades of powdery blue because it just reminds me so much of a winter wonderland.

When I saw this slouchy wrap-front pullover sweater, I immediately knew I had to get it in this pale baby blue hue because it just makes this cozy number even softer than it already looks. Another plus – the small little bow detail at the hem, in addition to the soft blue color, really adds just the right touch of subtle girly elegance to it.

The key to adding dimension to a monochromatic look is to incorporate varying shades of the same color. This is what I love most about this checked knee-length coat – the varying shades of navy, accompanied with a soft creamy ivory, adds such depth to the whole ensemble.

To finish off the monochromatic look, I threw on a pair of my favorite skinny jeans, so the whole silhouette is streamlined, since the sweater is already slouchy. Along with my favorite suede ankle booties, I was able to add some height so that I wouldn’t be overpowered by the oversized, knee-length coat.
