Sometimes matching items to a certain piece can be difficult. These pants for example I have had for months, but could only seem to want to wear them with the obvious choice, white. But there was something about the contrast of bright white against the printed pants that wasn't working for me. I found this 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target sweater yesterday on super sale, and decided that a monochromatic look is exactly the sort of outfit these pants were destined to be a part of. There's something about the midnight blue top that helps make the pants more subtle, not overpowering the look. The key to monochromatic looks is add some contrasting or neutral accessories for balance. Happy matching!
