Using Tonal Pairings to Create Instantly Chic Outfits…From Your Own Closet

Today I am showing you how to SHOP YOUR CLOSET to create stylish outfits by creating monochromatic or tonal looks on the top half of the outfit. This means that your underlying sweater / blouse / top will be the same color or tone as the overlying blazer / coat / cardigan. The result is an inherently stylish and chic pairing.

While I am showing you examples from MY closet, your homework assignment is to shop YOUR closet to see what sort of tonal outfits you can create from items you already own.

As always, SHOP YOUR CLOSET FIRST. But if you need to supplement your wardrobe, you can find shopping links below each photo.

I am barely 5’1 with a 26” inseam and generally wear size 4P. All items fit TTS (true to size) unless otherwise stated.
