I took a cue from Tania, who took a cue from Katherine, who decided to wear a gray monochromatic look. I'm neither a grad-student like Tania or an undergrad like Katherine, so my interpretation turned out a little more office-friendly, but the idea is essentially the same as theirs. In the end, we all agreed that monochromatic looks are great; they're classic, simple, and create a very clean and complete look.
Oh. And they're especially helpful when you're devoid of any color inspiration like I apparently was.
