Yesterday marked the 150th anniversary of Canada. In the spirit of Canada Day, I tried to incorporate some red and white in my outfit just like every other proud Canadian! As an aspiring minimalist, my wardrobe mainly consists of blacks, greys, whites, and blues, with an occasional pop of colour such as red, fuchsia, lavender, baby pink, and olive green (if that even counts). While I certainly prefer wearing neutrals over loud patterns or vibrant colours, and often find it challenging to find garments to complement statement items, wearing monochromatic items is one effective way look ย “put together” and still draw attention to the statement item. This essentially means dressing in all one hue – different shades of the colour work too. It is a colour-coordinating trickย I have been using over and over again, and I cannot stress enough how many times it has saved me from wardrobe malfunctions!

Deets of this monochromatic look (Canada Day edition!): Wide strap topย and high-waisted shorts with palm trees from Zara, nude slides from Capazio, daisy earrings and bracelet with red, silver, and white charms from Pandora, and toe nails in the colour Malaga Wine from OPI. In this case, I styled the statement red shorts by pairing them with accessories in the same colour, and topping it off with a white top and white earrings to complete that patriotic Canada Day look. Look out for more monochromatic looks on my blog!
