2 Ways to Style a Monochrome Caramel Outfit
Updated: Feb 12
Scarf: The Scarf Bar
Isn't warm caramel a delight? As a color, it's a playful spin-off of neutral beige.
In this article, I'll show two different ways to style a monochromatic caramel outfit. Both looks would be perfect for a brunch date with hubby or friends.
My headcovering is a square scarf from The Scarf Bar in the color 'chestnut'. It's generously sized at 40x40," and made of a smooth rayon blend. The edges are folded and stitched into a delicate 1/8" hem.
The video tutorial

Modest Caramel Outfit #1
In this ensemble, I've paired the headscarf with a dress by Nordstrom's house brand. The bodice and sleeves are a lightweight wool sweater knit, with an attached silky skirt.
A solid-colored dress with sleeves makes it easy to create a modest, monochrome look.
The leather tote bag is from Mark & Graham. It has many pockets and dividers, and came with a detachable shoulder strap.
When heading to the library to write, I stash my 13" laptop in the center zippered compartment.
Modest Caramel Outfit #2
Duster: Amazon Essentials / Skirt: made by me
Are you a three-piece outfit gal? If so, this one's for you.
The longline cardigan is by Amazon Essentials, in the colorway 'dark chestnut brown.' I have this duster in several other colors. It's made of a comfortable, lightweight cotton-modal blend.
Underneath the duster, I'm wearing a smooth, resilient t-shirt from Target. Isn't their knitwear the best? You can find a similar tee here.
This flowy midi skirt from Quince in the shade 'copper brown' would complete the trio beautifully. It's 100% silk, washable, and has an elastic waist.
The lip gloss
I love that it's fragrance-free, and hydrating without feeling sticky.
Bonus: with a coordinating wool trench
Leaf brooch: Amazon
This beige wool trench is from luxe loungewear brand NAP. The large patch pockets are convenient for stashing your phone and keys.
Cardigan: Anthropologie, similar here
The stones on the J.Crew necklace mimic those on the earrings. The oversize cocktail ring, also by Swarvoski, is simply the best. You can find a similar one here--it's at the top of my wish list.
The perforated leather flats are by comfort brand Vionic. Because painful flats--what's the point?
May your monochrome outfit bring you a technicolor day.
