Monochrome Stripe Tank and Skinny Jeans Outfits With Bright Accessories

Adding some colour to neutral outfits with bright accessories: my magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag and blue and purple scarves. I really liked both of these outfits, I need to wear things like this more often! I've been trying to introduce more colour to my outfits lately but there's something so simple about neutral outfits and adding pops of colours with bright accessories.

What I wore:

JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta 

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit! Didn't exactly keep me as warm as I'd hoped in the morning though, the three-quarter length sleeves on the cardigan were a bit chilly for the school drop off. Of course by the school pick up in the afternoon I was feeling like the cardigan and scarf were a bit too warm together!

This Louis Vuitton monogram shawl is so cosy and warm. I really like the pop of colour it gives to the striped tank, and pink and blue being a go-to favourite colour of mine I liked the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag with this cobalt blue too.

Was a quiet day at home most of the time, aside from the school pickup and drop off and grabbing another loaf of bread on the way home.

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, this outfit felt really warm, all day! I felt a bit overdressed in this thick knitted cardigan as we walked around the shopping centre in the morning after school drop off. We had to try find a pair of shoes for my youngest boy, but thankfully he liked the first pair we tried on. We went to a proper kids shoe store which is not normally where I'd buy the kids shoes, as they ruin them quite quickly, but they had a sale on so it wasn't too bad. We'd had no luck at Kmart, Target or Big W as they are all suffering from low stock levels because of the virus impacts to imports. Although I think the Target stocking issues may partly be due to them closing down so many stores as well? (Our Aussie brands are different from the US ones and so our Kmarts are taking over closing Target stores). Just gives me more reasons to stay home though - not a lot to browse through in the shops!

This was a very dark outfit with the black tank and cardigan, and the grey jeans. I think that the purple scarf and the magenta bag were just the right touches of colour with it, and purple and pink is another colour combination I really enjoy.



How You Can Wear It:

Bright bags and scarves add the perfect touch of colour to a neutral layered winter outfit. For a little extra pop you can pick two different colours for your accessories like I have here.

  5. I love both outfits on you:) That RM bag really pairs well with the colours on your outfits! And stocks are low here where we are too...the thing is that it's weird stuff that you wouldn't think will be hard to get, but alas, such as life nowadays.
    Have a great weekend!

  6. You look so nice running your errands. I love both scarves and the pretty magenta bag. Kids outgrow their shoes so fast, don't they?

    1. They do! It's only a few months a year they need closed in shoes for winter so I didn't realise they had outgrown them until it was too late, haha! They wear sandals most of the year.

  7. What an impact that bright scarf has!! And that bag will go with practically everything. I rarely wear monochromatic. In fact, I told Kellyann that I have only tried it once or twice when she recently shared an all white look. Need to break out of my shell!! You gals inspire me to do so.

  8. You can't go wrong with a stripy top, whatever the season. The beautiful blue scarf and magenta bag add welcome pops of colour to your outfits. I've been embracing longer cardigans lately. Loving both of yours, but can imagine the first one being a tiny bit too chilly for the school drop-off. I think it would even be to chilly for the mediocre Summer weather we've been having lately! Hope you had a good week, and wishing you the best of weekends, Mica! xxx

    1. cardigans are the best - I really got into them while breastfeeding as I needed soft zip free options, and I've got quite a collection now!

  9. Your coloured accessories really make these outfits, Mica! I love how nice and bright they are. This is how you do coloured shoes, by the way - just deploy them with your neutral outfits, same as you would with a scarf or bag. I think you need some bright Converses!

    Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

  11. One pop of color with a neutral outfit is my go to formula in clothing, but my pop of color usually is a red lipstick, ha!

    1. That is a fun pop! I find red lipstick too hard, although I've tried it a few times!

  12. I love a neutral outfit with a pop of color! It's not a combination I wear often myself for some reason, but looking at your outfits, I'm going to have to try to remedy that :)

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  14. What a beautiful LV blue scarf! It is such a pretty shade and matches with your eye nicely. It is always good to have a pop of colour. I love both pops of colours in your outfits. The mini RM bag is a lovely pop of colour as well. The outfit itself is cute. I like the striped tee with the leggings and the long cardi. Striped t-shirts are such a classic, aren't they?
