All Brown And Layered

Monochrome Brown Layers

Usually I don’t struggle too much when looking for a title for my outfit posts, but this one I did! Eventually I just decided to be literal with it, but I would be very intrigued to hear anyone else’s title ideas that you think would suit this look! Maybe that could be something fun for the Wednesday hump day, you can choose my title and the best one will win!

Anyway, Adam and I shot these photos a few weeks back and I had decided that I wanted to wear a neutral looking, monochrome style outfit, but with various shades of brown and warm tones. I actually really like how it turned out as well as I think the key to getting monochrome right is mixing in different textures from the fabrics, with different lengths and fits, as well as the various shades on a colour palette, so it makes it really interesting and not too uniform. When I look at this, even though it’s all quite similar, it’s extremely different at the same time and I like that. It might be one of my favourite comfy and casual looks I have worn this year so far!

So, what was I wearing? I opted to create a base of my favourite L’AGENCE Margot Jeans in Graphite, paired with my Allsaints roll neck jumper. I then put my Louis Vuitton belt around the jeans to break it up, but keep with the theme. I threw on my thick knitted cardigan from Pretty Little Thing as it was just the right shade of lighter brown, and then went with my Chloe Susanna boots in Beige, finished off with my Celine Nano Luggage in Dune. It’s a whole mix of brown and beige with black as a base. Without making this post too long, what do you think of my outfit? Lorna xx.

    That’s a gorgeous look. Brown was never one of my favourite colours but when it comes to clothes I’ve always gravitated towards it, don’t ask me why. That cardigan looks super cozy and since the temperatures here are dropping this week, I could really use one like yours.

      Yeah, that’s how I feel, it’s not a colour I would even consider outside of fashion or interiors, but it works wonderfully with my skin tone! Glad you like it!

      It is really difficult! Especially when you’re on number 1500 or something like that, ha ha.

    This is such a cute and cosy casual outfit! I like the brown knits together, that cardi is such a good layering piece! And you already know I love those boots. One day I’d love to own a pair!

    No idea for a title sorry, I tend to stick with literal with my post titles too, haha!

    Hope your week is going well! πŸ™‚ It’s been such nice, cool weather here, properly like autumn!

      Thanks, Mica πŸ˜€ I hope one day you get the boots too! I’m lucky as I’ve always managed to get them with quite heavy discounts, I couldn’t pay retail for them! So glad you like the outfit though!

    I agree that monochrome works really well when you mix textures. I think you did it beautifully here and I love the neutral look.

    I always love the brown shades even if a total brown is difficult to style. You did it so great, I have to try it πŸ™‚

    Lorna, I had these in mind regarding what you might alternatively say πŸ™‚

    Enjoy diversity of brown and shades
    To make me happy just leave a comment: it’s all it takes!

    A title you should come up with:
    The one to match the beauty
    of my newest casual outfit.

    Hopefully you are not having already a vision of a boiling green potion I chant some incantations over ha ha. But at least I think I’ve just expressed my opinion regarding your outfit. I like how you styled the jumper with the knitted cardigan. And I like the stairs πŸ™‚ They fit in the whole picture very nicely.

    And thank you for answering my questions in the previous post. The old chair broke and I loved it but my comforting thought is that everything happens for a reason ha ha.

      Thank you, Steven! Those are definitely interesting titles, although maybe a bit long for blog purposes, but the first one could work πŸ™‚ I’m glad you like everything though πŸ™‚
