A Monochromatic Look That’s L.A. Perfection

It's no secret we're mad about textures this season. Whether you're punctuating your winter wardrobe with a must-have camel coat or switching out your black closet staples for some cool beige, we highly recommend you slip into a few neutral-hued numbers this fall. So, when we caught this L.A. lass last week in Brentwood rocking this amazing head-to-toe nude outfit, we knew we had to snap it and share her clever dressing tips. First up, pick pieces with a varied texture, like a cotton shirtdress, a knit sweater and leather jacket, and some metallic oxfords. And this pale palette is the perfect backdrop for a bold, pretty eye for night and some super sexy, tousled hair for day. Serious perfection.

Essential #1: T-Shirt dress—A simple sheath dress is the smartest dressing staple to pair with patterned tights, and we love it under a belted cardigan or a year-round army jacket.

Silk Contrast Zip Back Tunic, $100, available at Topshop.com.

Essential #2: Metallic shoes—These amazing flats will make you want to kick all your other shoes to the curb this winter—we love how the metallic toe adds interest to an otherwise plain pair of oxfords.

Cooperative Wool Toecap Oxford Shoe, $48, available at UrbanOutfitters.com.

Essential #3: Light jacket—There's nothing better for an unseasonably warm winter than a light and lovely jacket that you can layer over all your fave fall-into-winter outfits. Go for a style with an interesting texture like this leather piece or a cool knit sweater cinched at the waist.
