Who says monochromatic black has to be boring? Here are four ways to wear a black monochromatic outfit dressed up, dressed down, for date night, for work or school, and beyond!

I love a monochromatic outfit, and probably everyone has a black tee in their closet. Here are a few ways to accessorize a monochromatic black outfit.

I’m wearing this  super soft and comfy black tee with my charcoal gray Madewell jeans, but you could do any of these outfits with other colors of jeans — dark blue, light blue, pure black, or even white!

4 ways to wear a monochromatic black outfit

Wear white sneakers

I love a black and white outfit, and crisp white sneakers look so cool with a black and gray outfit. I added a leopard strap bag for a pop.

Belt it for a dressier look!

This is a super easy way to dress up your basics — add a nice belt with a gold buckle and some heels! Again, this combo works with any style or color of jeans and a tee.

Make it workwear with a blazer

Adding a blazer instantly makes an outfit feel more sophisticated and work appropriate. If you can’t wear jeans to work, swap the gray jeans for gray or black dress pants or a skirt!

Add a cardigan for an easy teacher outfit

I’m working on a full teacher outfit guide, but here’s an easy idea! Throw on a cardigan and some comfy flats for an easy teacher look.
