I was hoping to start wearing my new spring clothes. But no! There was snow last week, frigid temperatures over the weekend and this week there is a threat of a Nor’Easter. What’s a girl to do? Well, dress appropriately.

Camel is my one-tone choice. I’m wearing my ASOS oversized swing coat with kimono sleeve, a J.Crew camel wool dress, and last season’s Cole Haan Pewter Suede Boots.
Below are the 2017 spring trends I’m excited to buy to wear once the weather breaks (save for the frayed jeans and bomber jacket):
I’m dressed in a monochromatic look is a great styling trick that is timeless and elegant. It’s also a fabulous styling trick to make one appear leaner and taller while hiding flaws and problem areas. However, a one-tone color outfit not only refers to head-to-toe black or white, but there are also other flattering colors to consider.
