As a lover of minimalism, I find myself drawn to people who share my love for monochrome and simplicity. I teamed up with one of my favorite minimalist bloggers, Lysiane-Marie of Lines Manner, to do a grey monochrome look. We both have a penchant for neutrals and take the “less is more” approach to fashion.

See Lysiane-Marie’s version of the look here.

While my silhouette is more structured, Lines Manner’s is a bit more flowy and draped. Either way, comfort is always key to both us minimalist bloggers.

When doing any monochrome look, texture and silhouette are vital components. I mixed together shades of grey in silk, tweed, and wool.  I love the way Lines Manner contrasted textures with her thick sweater paired with cotton dress and marbled sneakers. For silhouette, I went for a more tomboy approach.
