A Gray, Black and White Affair

Alright so this next look channels Janelle Monae’s signature look. Janelle is a tuxedo enthusiast who can be seen mainly wearing black and white. Her style is amazing and I just love the way she dresses.

The outfit I am wearing reminds me of her signature look, but using greys. I fell in love with this black and white ruffle shirt when I saw it at the thrift store. It is such a unique piece and I don’t have anything like it in my closet. I was drawn to this particular shirt, because the ruffles were not too overpowering.

This grey vest is actually from the men’s section of the thrift store. I am all for shopping in the mens section, you can find some amazing pieces there as well. These grey pant’s fit extremely well and hit right at my ankles. It looks great with these kitten heel black suede pumps.

Although we all have our own unique style, sometime we want to step out of our comfort zone just a little. So, sometimes its good to draw inspiration from others. Whether it be your favorite artist, fashion blogger or best friend. Are you a fan of Janelle Monae? Do you like her style?  Finally, who do you draw your fashion inspiration from?
