Shades of Grace

Frederik is dapper in hues of blue. His slim-fit blazer, suit pants, merino wool sweater and loafers are from H&M, Rideau Centre. Jessica is beautiful in a deep blue, midi wrap dress, nude pumps and earrings from Banana Republic, Rideau Centre.

Imagine a perfect day. A glamorous mansion. A beautiful couple who are effortlessly elegant in head-to-toe hues. This colour story, in shades of blue, mauve, teal, onyx and red, showcases the possibilities of monochrome dressing. Impossibly soigné and flattering to boot, the look projects confidence and poise. It’s also a classic fashion statement worth making.
