As much as I love wearing bright colors and prints, I have to admit that half my closet is actually comprised of black clothing and that in my morning haste to get to school on time, I usually come to school wearing all black. Some people say that the all black look is a cliché of art school students, but it does certainly have its appeal when you have a 6 hour drawing class and know you are going to walk out with charcoal all over you! ;) The beauty of monochromatic looks though, is the freedom they give you to experiment with different silhouettes so you can have the focus of your outfit be on the shape of the clothing.

For that reason, having classic pieces in unusual fabrics and shapes, such as this coat and these platform boots, is what is going to make your look truly your own! I love this neoprene coat from Minnoji because of the way it feels against my skin and the lovely drape it has on the body—structured, yet still soft. And these neoprene boots to match from Miista have the coolest arch and heel shape; plus they make my legs look super long!

It's funny because whenever people meet me for the first time but have seen my photos online beforehand, one of the first things they often say is how I look so much taller in pictures. Well my little secret to that is monochromatic dressing. You basically want to match your legwear with your shoes so your legs become a seamless illusion where you can't tell where the shoe starts and it looks like your leg is actually just extremely long ;) Here I've done it with black tights and black boots, but you can also do this simply with a good pair of nude pumps. If you want to make your legs look even longer, you can wear high waisted shorts, which will further elongate your lower half. Now you guys know my secret ;) but I hope it inspires you to experiment and try it out for yourself too!
