Mary J. Blige went edgy in a monochrome look to film “Power Book 2: Ghost” in New York City.

For a scene in character, Blige wore a monochrome green ensemble. The singer’s look was composed of green nylon trousers and an olive green sweater accented with a ribbed turtleneck and shoulder cutouts. She layered the look with a logo-embroidered Fendi drawstring jacket, sans sleeves, and accessorized with a pair of rectangular gold bamboo earrings.

For footwear, the “Real Love” musician added an edgy punch with Fendi’s mixed media combat boots. The pair featured black leather rounded toes and heels over gray sock-like uppers, printed with the Italian brand’s black “FF” logo. Set atop thick lug soles, the shoes were utterly utilitarian and brought Blige’s outfit a sharp edge. Her Rockoko FF boots retail for $1,100 on MyTheresa.com.

Monochrome dressing has become one of the greatest trends this season, as it creates an instantly streamlined look by pairing pieces in the same color or print. Though Blige’s “Power” look appears to be for an autumn or winter scene, her outfit’s deep green tones all complement each other and create a uniform outfit. Other stars have taken notice of the trend this season, including Jordyn Woods, Jennifer Lopez and Khloe Kardashian.
